#notinmyname

I'm hanging Christmas baubles
Upon the Christmas tree
While they're dropping bombs but
Not in the name of me

CHORUS:
Not in the name of me, no
Not in the name of me
Jesus was a terrorist
From the Middle East

I'm wrapping Christmas tinsel
Around the Christmas tree
While they're killing Syrians but
Not in the name of me

CHORUS

I'm turning on the fairy lights
Hung on the Christmas tree
While they're snuffing children's lives but
Not in the name of me

CHORUS

We've got no shiny star this year
To top off our Christmas tree
For the wise men told us that
"That light came from the East"
And we've closed our borders to
All celestial refugees
But perhaps a Christmas miracle will
Mean that bombs can bring us peace

CHORUS

I'm putting Christmas presents now
Beneath the Christmas tree
While they're making modern martyrs but
Not in the name of me

CHORUS
