And what is its truest message: its reason we should hear
With all of this running and this buying to and fro
Have we truly forgotten..its purpose.. do we know?
Long lines and pushing inside of the busy mall..
People out there running looking for the best gift of all
Credit cards and checkbooks flashing about the busy line
With all of this happening: what is Christmas? Please define,,,
Is it Silent Night, Holy Night or is it: Deck the Halls..?
Wrapping up of the presents or is it dialing up some needed calls?
Who is it we're celebrating or what is it we're expecting here
Is this holiday about a memory or the payments waiting to clear?
