A new song for this Season

Once again it's Christmas, comes round every year.
When I was young, songs we sung, always brought me cheer.
We would sing about love and peace and the brotherhood of man.
And when we spoke, words of hope, we all stood hand in hand.

But this year seems quite different from what I used to hear.
Words are said by talking heads, fill my heart with fear.
And politician speeches, to me, sound off key.
Did the angels take the wise men and leave DC?

I think the angels took the wise men and left DC.
And folks they left behind will not agree
They call each other nasty names, always play the blaming game.
I think the angels took the wise men and left DC

Our leaders talk so nasty, to each other they're unkind,
And the names they place on the human race, simply blows my mind.
It seems they do not admit mistakes, and never apologize.
They smile at me from the TV screen while they keep on spouting lies.

The angels took the wise men and left DC.
And folks they left behind will not agree.
They call each other nasty names, always play the blaming game.
I think the angels took the wise men and left DC!

I wonder how we bring them back, perhaps it begins with me.
If I can start, within my heart, treating folks decently.
Then maybe one will join me, followed by two or three.
And we'll join hands with our fellow man to end this insanity.

I hope the angels bring the wise men back to DC!
And I believe it begins with you and me.
Stop using all the nasty names, stop playing all the blaming games.
I hope the angels bring the wise men back to DC!

And I believe it begins with you and me!
