This Christmas song really needs no explanation. I have lights on my house and for good reason!


Verse 1

I go up into my attic and I get em down.
Put some Christmas music on for that seasonal sound
Sip on some egg nog while I get’ed unwound
Cuz you know Inside Joke gonna light up the town! Yeah!
I’m putting lights on my house, I put the Griswalds to shame
First on my street to get in the game
It’s a shame, that I can’t get more!
But I done lit my house and the neighbors next door
I got big ones small ones, flashing lights’
I be keeping my neighbors up all through night
I got em on the doors at the windows and the roof
I even got em in my yard in case you needed proof
That I love Christmas! Cuz He’s the light of the world!
Got lights of all sorts for al the boys and the girls
Both young and old, cuz they gosta know
That Messiah still bringing light wherever He go!


I got lights on my house, but not for Hanukkah
I ain’t gotten on my house for Kwanza
In fact, I ain’t got em up for no holiday
And I sure don’t got'em up for no Santa in his sleigh
These lights be like the lights the led the way
For shepherds to find the Savior in the Hay
So I keep the wattage blasting through the silent night
There ain’t no amount of darkness that can stop The Light!


I got surge protectors blowing up
But that don't’ stop me from keeping my lights up
Four generators, to keep the current flowing
All year long even when it ain’t snowing
That’s right I keep my lights on my house all year round
Don’t see no need in taking em down
Cuz the hassle 2. Cuz it’s profound
That Christ still The Light when Santa ain’t in town!
