A Simple Holiday Song lyrics

A Simple Holiday Song

IRIS (spoken)
Dear God...Why can't there be another holiday between Christmas and Easter.
There is nothing good in there now.

JOANNA (spoken)
Dear God...Our teacher read us the part where all the Jews went through the water and got away.
Keep up the good work. P.S.
I'm Jewish.

KICKER (spoken)
Dear God...With so many different religions, don't you get mixed up sometimes?

IRIS
Fa la la la la la la la!
Let's sing a simple holiday song:
Fa la la Fa la la la la la!
Baby Jesus born in a manger...

ALL (except Iris)
Not so fast:
I may be a stranger
To your kind of holiday song.

IRIS
Sing a simple holiday song:
Fa la la Fa la...

JOANNA
Not for me.
Spinning dreidels, dancing a horah,
Chant in Heberw, light the menorah:
Baruch ata adonai eloheinu melech haolam...
That's our simple holiday song.

THEO
But what of Kwanzaa?
You can't forget Kwanzaa.
From an old Swahili phrase,
It lasts I think for seven days.

IRIS
Mine lasts for twelve...

JOANNA
Mine lasts for eight.

BRETT
At least you get to celebrate!

Sing a simple holiday song:
Fa la la Fa la la la la...la!
Mom on Christmas,
Dad is on New Year's...
I drink cider,
He has a few beers.

You get pretty used to it all
When you're a holiday volley ball.

KICKER
Sing a simple holiday song:
Fa la la Fa la la la la!
Sing of joy this season for giving...
All those gifts are reason for living!

ALL
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!

KICKER
All is Toys R Us, dot com,
All is bright.

IRIS
So sing of king of kings

THEO
Celebrations
Harvest celebrations

JOANNA
The festival of lights

BRETT
Bus stations...
Go Greyhound!

KICKER
Of Santa Claus

ALL
And winter vacations!
Sing a simple holiday song...

IRIS
Fa la la Fa la la la la la

THEO (same time)
Nguzo saba, Kwanzaa

JOANNA (same time)
Baruch ata adonai eloheinu

KICKER (same time)
Macy's, Santa, Fao Schwarz

BRETT (same time)
Mom, Dad, Greyhound

ALL
It's not easy blending our voices
When we're offered so many choices!
If it's hard to follow along...

Just sing, sing, sing
A simple, simple, simple

JOANNA
Chanukah

IRIS
Christmas

THEO
Kwanzaa

KICKER
Sanata Claus

KICKER/THEO
Holiday

IRIS/JOANNA
Holy day

BRETT
Peace on earth!

ALL
Song!!!
