Robbie Robertson has released an irreverent new Christmas single titled, “Happy Holidays”. Available as a digital download, the new tune features such humorous lyrics as, “Please don’t leave Old Saint Nick/Too much milk and cookies/’Cause by the time he gets round to us/He won’t be able to get/His fat ass down the chimney.” Listen below.
“We love Christmas and the holidays,” said Robertson in a statement. “It brings good cheer, and also stress and depression, so I wanted to do a song that celebrates both sides and have a little fun.”
Not only does the new tune provide a bit of dark humor in an overly sentimentalized season, but it also supports a good cause – all proceeds from the single will go to the American Indian College Fund.
