Lyrics

O CHRISTMAS TREE, REUSABLE CHRISTMAS TREE

MUSIC AND LYRICS: RICHARD HOLLEY

ORIGINAL CHORUS
O CHRISTMAS TREE, O CHRISTMAS TREE,
YOU STAND IN VERDANT BEAUTY
O CHRISTMAS TREE, O CHRISTMAS TREE,
YOU STAND IN VERDANT BEAUTY

ORIGINAL VERSE 1
YOUR BOUGHS ARE GREEN IN SUMMER’S GLOW,
AND DO NOT FADE IN WINTER’S SNOW
O CHRISTMAS TREE, O CHRISTMAS TREE,
YOU STAND IN VERDANT BEAUTY

NEW VERSE 1
WE FIND GOOD TREES, WE CHOP THEM DOWN
SHOVE THEM IN OUR CARS, THEN DRIVE THROUGH TOWN
WHAT BRILLIANT MIND CAME UP WITH THIS!
KILLING LOTS OF TREES TO HAVE MORE BLISS?

NEW VERSE 2
WITH GLOBAL WARMING EVERYWHERE,
PERHAPS IT’S TIME TO SAY THIS PRAYER:
PLEASE LEAVE THAT TREE IN THE SOIL RIGHT THERE!
SO THAT WE CAN BREATHE IN CLEANER AIR.

NEW CHORUS
O CHRISTMAS TREE, REUSABLE CHRISTMAS TREE,
WE NEED YOU MORE THAN EVER.
O CHRISTMAS TREE, ARTIFICIAL CHRISTMAS TREE,
NO TREE TRUNKS SHALL WE SEVER.

NEW VERSE 3
WITH CHRISTMAS OVER, SANITATION TRUCKS
WILL BE DISPATCHED TO CLEAN THINGS UP.
THESE DRIED OUT TREES LINE EVERY ROAD
SO MUCH DEAD WOOD THEY MUST UNLOAD.

NEW VERSE 4
A NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION, PLEASE
MAY WE CUT DOWN NO MORE CHRISTMAS TREES
NEXT YEAR LET’S GO TO A STORE WE KNOW
FOR AN ARTIFICIAL TREE TO SET AGLOW

NEW CHORUS
O CHRISTMAS TREE, REUSABLE CHRISTMAS TREE,
WE NEED YOU MORE THAN EVER.
O CHRISTMAS TREE, ARTIFICIAL CHRISTMAS TREE,
NO TREE TRUNKS SHALL WE SEVER.

ENDING
WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS,
WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS,
WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND A RESUABLE TREE.
