I'll have a Zoom Christmas this season I'll be so blue, and Covid's the reason Though your background displays 30 Rock's Christmas tree It won't be the same dear, if you're on my PC And when those Zoom windows start closing That's when I'll doomscroll, I'm supposing Though it's all fun and games when we're playing Codenames Still, I'll have a blue, blue, blue Zoom Christmas When the image has froze looking up grandpa's nose Then I'll have a blue, blue, blue Zoom Christmas

Have a social-distanced Christmas Try to balance dread and cheer Wear a mask when you do your tasks And keep away the fear Have a social-distanced Christmas And when you walk down the streets Be sure to stay six feet away From everyone you meet Oh, no, the mistletoe Who hung it? That's outrageous! Don't kiss the person underneath 'Cause they might be contagious Have a social-distanced Christmas And in case it isn't clear My insistence: have a social-distanced Christmas this year!

Chestnuts roasting on a blacktop road Jack Frost nowhere to be found All of this weather seems to forbode A climate change that's quite profound Everybody knows the overuse of fossil fuels Help to make the season stifling Sweaty tots with their eyes all aglow Will find it hard to sleep tonight They know that Santa's sleigh can't fly When the temperature feels more like it's July And the older kids might very well suppose That he's lighting stogies off of Rudolph's nose And so I'm offering this simple phrase For kids from one to ninety-two Although it's been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas...we're screwed!

I'll stay home for Christmas But I'd rather go To ski and sport at a resort And frolic in the snow I'll stay home for Christmas It doesn't bring me cheer But I'll stay home for Christmas It's where I've stayed all year I'll stay home for Christmas 'Cause Fauci says I must And he's about the only public Figure that I trust I really hope by next year We all have our vaccines And I'll leave home for Christmas Not only in my dreams
