(Nobody Cares About) the Days After Christmas

from Cassandra Abandoned, I & II [Marion's Version] by Matt DeMello



Nobody cares about the days after Christmas,
Except for me and you.
And everybody needs someone they can rely on,
To see them the holidays through.

All these sales and bargains I simply can't ignore
I've been shopping since Thanksgiving so why not shop a little more

‘Cause nobody cares about the days after Christmas,
Except for an indignant few
Who appreciate the calm before the storm of the New Year,
To cross off the list of their to-dos.

There’s bound to be some new Star Wars movie we can see
Or what shouldn’t win an Oscar but will end up with nineteen
Because nobody cares!…

So from my less than picture perfect family to yours
For every hallucination on our front lawns and our stores—
Please think of the needs of others if you need something to do
and Here’s to starting over between everyone and you.

Because nobody,
Nobody and no one...

Yes, nobody cares about the days after Christmas,
Except for muslims, atheists, and Jews
And poor uptights who insist way all say “Merry Christmas”
Without other holidays confused!

To the point where no one’s even all that grateful, just bemused.
Anyway, Happy Saturnalia from Matt DeMello & the Significant Looks!
