Jew on Christmas

I get everything on my wish list

As a Jew on Christmas 

Chinese food for dinner

Now that’s a real winner

As a Jew on Christmas 

No line at Starbucks 

Just look at my luck(s)

As a Jew on Christmas 

Candy canes on sale 

That’s a nice detail

As a Jew on Christmas 

But there is a price 

That isn’t so nice

When you’re a Jew on Christmas:

When someone wishes you a merry day

It would be rude to say 

Well, no thank you because I’m a Jew on Christmas day.
