Smile Favorite Christmas Song Phrase or Line

It's coming! It's fast approaching! I just thought it might be good to get into the spirit this early and spread some holiday cheer. We were all kids once I assume... So which christmas song reminds you of the good old feelings? Any favorite Christmas song phrase or line to share?

I'll go first - taken from "The Christmas Song"

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Chrismas to you

"rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum"

Pure Poetry

Let's Briefly examine "The Little Drummer Boy"

*Please note that the narrator has made it clear they are going to see the new born king and give him gifts. Also it gets a bit redundant with "to lay before the king" what else were you gonna do with them, through them at the baby?

And we need this part because...? Why else give the kid gifts?

Let me get this straight, you spend all of verse one redundantly blathering on about going to give the baby king a gift and yet you don't have one...? How does that work?

If you were any good as a drummer you could afford a decent gift for the son of god.

Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.
Wow you got a baby to smile, and had farm animals as the rhythm section, great stuff Ginger Baker this douchey canoe and his family have been collecting royalties on this garbage song and it's repetitive drone of a melody for generations and it's time it stopped.

Death to the Little Drummer Boy.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

I've never thought about the song that way.
I don't think i'll ever listen to it again.

may favorite line is in the song holly jolly christmas, "somebody waits for you," and it's in like minor key when the rest of the song is so triumphant and major.

Westward leading,
still proceeding,
following yonder light.

It's not a classic Christmas song, but I love it.

"Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses

It really only works as a whole song, but I think this is the coolest line:

"So deck those halls, trim those trees
Raise up cups of Christmas cheer,
I just need to catch my breath,
Christmas by myself this year."

Here's the full set of lyrics if you're interested..

The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping - Lyrics

They're all terrible and corny! They're so cheerful they are depressing. I boycott Christmas songs this year!
