All Around The World (Ho Ho Happy Birthday Jesus Christ) featured on HBO’s Eastbound and Down!

 

I cut my teeth as a songwriter as a member of a quirky power pop band called “Evil Wiener”. We made a Christmas EP that was released on a vinyl seven inch record. I was surprised when, a few weeks ago, I was contacted by Home Box Office and asked if “All Around The World” could be used on the show “Eastbound and Down”. Being a proud resident of North Carolina, how could I say no! Here are the lyrics:

lyrics
He likes his milk and cookies
He dresses all in red
He isn’t much for shavin’
Yeah you ought to see his sled

Well I swear I wasn’t smokin’
When I saw the reindeer fly
He went all around the world and it only took one night
With a thermos full of black coffee by his side
He says:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday, Jesus Christ
He says:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday Jesus

He’s got video monitors
He’s got your telephone tapped
He’s got spies planted everywhere
He knows if you’ve been bad

He’s got a sack full of toys
For the good girls and boys
But if you’re on his shit list
You won’t get nothin’ but switches
He goes all around the world and it only takes one night
He says:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday, Jesus Christ
He says:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday Jesus

Well some people don’t believe in him
And I’ll admit I’ve had my doubts
Until I found a pile of reindeer droppings
On the roof of my house

Well I swear I wasn’t smokin’
When I say the reindeer fly
He goes all around the world and it only takes one night
With a thermos full of black coffee by his side
He says:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday, Jesus Christ
He says:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday Jesus

Just got back from Carolina
Delivered switches to a sailor
But watch those ashes in the chimney
Don’t you know you’ll stain the carpet
But now I haven’t got the time time
Too busy givin’ out the presents
Too busy flyin’ around the world
With the radio on

He’s got a sack full of toys
For the good girls and boys
But if you’re on his shit list
You won’t get nothing but switches
He goes all around the world and it only takes one night
Saying:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday, Jesus Christ
Saying:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday, Jesus Christ
Saying:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday, Jesus Christ
He says:
Ho Ho Happy Birthday, Jesus!
