Christmas Is Cancelled
Words and Music Copyright © ℗ 2020 by Scott Richard Cooley
I actually submitted this to a christmas/holiday songwriting contest, and I did not win. It only occurred to me after the fact that the contest and judges were based in Nashville, TN - a red state full of people who probably don't take kindly to a diss of their beloved hero, our president at the time, in the lyrics, so it's no surprise. This was both my first Christmas song, and my first time getting even somewhat political in my lyrics. I usually write either simple funny songs or cheesy love songs, and this is one of the rare examples of something a little more serious. Hope this didn't offend or alienate too many of you, it's somewhat tame compared to the political posts you can read on social media every day.
