[Editor’s note: If you love Christmas, and love to sing those classic Christmas carols, well, we apologize. Here instead is another Tyee 2019 carol. Find the full series here. ]

We’ll have a blue Christmas, without seats;
We’ll be so blue just thinking we got beat.
Decorations of green in the House you will see,
There’s not much green though — we just elected three.

We’ll have a blue Christmas without May,
We’ll be so blue thinking of that day,
We expected to win,
But we fell short again,
And we need a new leader this Christmas.

And since the Green House apparatus,
Is too small for party status,
We’ll be stuck in the back,
While the others attack
The Greens have a blue, blue, blue Christmas.  [Tyee]
