Xmas songs no. 25: MxPx – “Christmas Day”

Christmas DayIt’s Christmas Day! Here’s a song about it. Every year since 1998, MxPx has recorded an original Christmas song for their fan club (known as PxPx, the Pokinatcha Punx). The first 6 were released as CD singles mailed to fan club members, but since 2005 they’ve been distributed digitally. I’ve been an on-and-off PxPx member for years and received a lot of these songs. In 2009 the band put out Punk Rawk Christmas, collecting all their Christmas singles up to that point along with a couple new ones for general release. “Christmas Day” was the very first of these special holiday singles, released in ’98 during my first year of college.

She waits and prays
Because it’s almost Christmas Day
A little faith
Can always go such a long way

There’s something about the way you spend your Christmas
There’s something about the way you care
There’s something about the way you kiss

A little goes a long way
A little goes a long way
A little goes a long way
A little goes a long way on Christmas Day

There’s Christmas cheer
Enough to last you three whole years
There’s the mistletoe
If you were me then would know

The snow outside covers the ground
And as a watch it falling down
I think of her, so far away
And how much I like to be with her on Christmas Day
On Christmas Day
On Christmas Day
On Christmas Day
