Not Just Family

by k k

Hope you get the gifts you want this year,

and don't forget to sup up all your beer,

have a real good time - it's quite alright.

But as you lie back in your chair,

party ribbons tangled in your hair,

there's a world outside that's outa sight.

Old people who freeze - with none to care.

The lonely, sick and hungry - is it really fair?

Christmas is for everybody - not just family.

Christmas is for everybody - not just family.

Now we all have the best of everything,

remember this as we may choose to sing,

'let it snow' while children walk the streets.

and when our conscience causes us to stir,

as sending money always shows we care -

meanwhile christmas dinner's thrown away.

old people who freeze - with none to care,

the lonely, sick and hungry - is this really fair?

Christmas is for everybody - not just family

Christmas is for everybody - not just family.
