"Best Christmas Ever"
words and music by Chris Knudson

VERSE
We took off in our interstellar T-Bird
Back in December Twenty-Twelve.
As I recall there was a trail of dust
From the memory of heaven and hell.

Down came the pyramids
And the relics of an ancient machine
Down came the miracle lifting us up
Beyond the science, beyond the scene. And we sang…

CHORUS
THIS IS THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER
MUSLIM AND JEW, BUDDHIST, HINDU
WHATEVER YOUR VIEWS.
WE’RE LETTING GO OF ANGER AND ANGRY TRADITIONS
WE’RE RISING UP HIGH IN A JOYOUS RENDITION
Of “Oh Holy Night”

VERSE
Blessed are we: those who are truly free.
Back in the day you had to have faith in order to receive.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the fun of Santa, reindeer,
snow on the roof.
Lovely stories, lovely times, but now we got nothing to prove
with this cosmic groove. And we sing…

REPEAT CHORUS (2x)

OUTRO
Ohh… Ohh holy… Oh holy night.

about

Kanude Richmond, Virginia

Kanude is the artist name for singer/songwriter Chris Knudson primarily from the mid-2000s to the present, while based in Texas, California, Oregon and Virginia. File under: "rock + americana + plant medicine = americronica" It has nothing to do with a small boat with paddles, but something to do with an old Scandinavian English king... maybe. ... more
