Christmas, So Cold


I can recall Christmases
When I was small
The lights, the gifts, the tree
Y’all gave to me
Holidays back then were warm bright
Now I can’t live of whats been
Nothing seems to be right anymore
Since you put a storm in my head
Ya made me fatherless, You were gone
Like you were dead
Whatever happened to, “I was the best”?

(Refrain)
Christmas, So Cold
All the more as I get old
Christmas, alone
Without a family to call my own
Not how it use to be
Not how it suppose to be
Christmas, this cold
Being so alone

Jingle hell! Jingle hell!

My mama was no better
Turned me into a latch-key kid
Been on my own since I was ten
Whatch ya expect?
Crazy ole white bitch cryin yer name all da time
Till one day she got over you
She married a redneck and lost her mind
I was on my own by that time
At the mercy of a fat ass stepper
Tellin me his rules while takin over my crib
What a fuckin heifer while Mama looked the other way

(Refrain)

Got my friends ya know
We’re all tight but
They still got their own
Families on the holidays
Yer not blood, But yer all I had
Now I got nothing
Don’t ya think dats sad?

(Refrain)

Got my friends ya know
We’re all tight but
They still got their own
Families on the holidays
Yer not blood, But yer all I had
Now I got nothing
Don’t ya think dats sad?
Papa you say yer here to stay
I don’t know what dat means
Yer too late, I’m Big Nate
And Mama so long as you don’t ditch that redneck bitch
We can never see eye to eye
Guess I was yer son on loan
Don’t ya bother reachin me on da phone

Refrain)

I heard theres a special place
Believe me, It’ll be a turtle’s pace
For me to arrive
If it’s a place in my head
If it’s a space in my heart
I wonder why should I start
Ta let go of da past
But forgiveness they say it lasts
But dats a long road
And I got my friends
We’re all tight but
Yes they got their own

(Refrain)

Merry Christ – mas
Whatever happened to living well?
