a real christmas song

I really like this original Christmas song by Tim Minchin. I like it because it is smart. And I like it because it articulates things I have long felt and haven't quite managed to articulate. Like, "I get freaked out by churches. Some of the hymns that they sing have nice chords but the lyrics are dodgy. And yes I have all of the usual objections to the miseducation of children who in tax-exempt institutions are taught to externalize blame and to feel ashamed and to judge things as plain right or wrong. But I quite like Christmas songs." See? Smart. And not your garden-variety Christmas song. See what you think.
