    Music and Lyrics by: Cathy Neff (ASCAP)

    I went out to my mailbox a day or two ago,
    And I pulled out a letter someone sent.
    The front said, “Merry Xmas” and I really want to know,
    Who took out my Christmas and where it went.

    Don’t X Out My Christmas
    ‘Cuz I really like it there.
    Without His name it’s really not the same.
    So, wish me a Merry Christmas
    And I’ll wish you the same.
    Don’t forget it’s all about His name.

    The streets are full of shoppers, and Santa’s on his way.
    The tinsel and the garland’s on the tree,
    But somewhere in the bustle while we looked the other way
    Someone put an “X” where “Christ” should be.

    Don’t X Out My Christmas
    ‘Cuz I really like it there.
    Without His name it’s really not the same.
    So, wish me a Merry Christmas
    And I’ll wish you the same.
    Don’t forget it’s all about His name.

    The “Ho! Ho! Ho!” and the mistletoe
    And the presents ‘neath the tree –
    I love ‘em all, don’t get me wrong;
    Inside I’m really three!
    But when it comes to “Christmas,”
    I want the “Christ” in there.
    ‘Cuz without His name it’s really not the same.

    Don’t X Out My Christmas
    ‘Cuz I really like it there.
    Without His name it’s really not the same.
    So, wish me a Merry Christmas
    And I’ll wish you the same.
    Don’t forget it’s all about His name.

    Don’t forget it’s all about His name!
    About His name!
    His name!
