Lyrics

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Christmas time is here
An ancient family tradition
We practice without question
'tis the season to be jolly and a time of cheer
A pagan rooted tradition but we don't care

Pagan winter celebration called "Nativity"
The birth of Babylon's Nimrod
To honor now the true God
Pagan symbol of the solstice, sacred evergreen
We decorate it with lights and a manger scene

For the sake of our tradition we grieve the heart of God
For the sake of our tradition His word is null and void
For the sake of our tradition 'cuz we like the smell of pine
For the sake of our tradition It's Christmas time

Yah commands us not to borrow pagan worship ways
To keep His festivals only
He wants us to be holy
Lord we love you and we'll follow every word You say
But when it comes to breaking tradition we won't obey
For the sake of our tradition we skip a couple lines
For the sake of our tradition, Lord we hope that You don't mind
For the sake of our tradition, Oh how we love the smell of pine
For the sake of our tradition it's Christmas time
