    I’m a Christmas unicorn
    In a uniform made of gold
    With a billy goat beard
    And a sorceror’s shield
    And mistletoe on my nose

    Oh I’m a Christian holiday
    I’m a symbol of original sin
    I’ve a pagan tree and magical wreath
    And a bowtie on my chin

    Oh I’m a pagan heresy
    I’m a tragic-al Catholic shrine
    I’m a little bit shy with a lazy eye
    And a penchant for sublime

    Oh I’m a mystical apostasy
    I’m a horse with a fantasy twist
    Though I play all night with my magical kite
    People say I don’t exist

    For I make no full apology
    For the category I reside
    I’m a mythical mess with a treasury chest
    I’m a construct of your mind

    Oh I’m hysterically American
    I’ve a credit card on my wrist
    And I have no home nor field to roam
    I will curse you with my kiss

    Oh I’m a criminal pathology
    With a history of medical care
    I’m frantic shopper and a brave pill popper
    And they say my kind are rare

    But I’ve seen others in the uniform
    Of a unicorn just like me
    We are legions wide and we chose no sides
    We are masters of mystique

    For you’re a Christmas unicorn
    I have seen you on the beat
    You may dress in the human uniform, child
    But I know you’re just like me
    I’m a Christmas Unicorn! (Find the Christmas Unicorn!)
    You’re a Christmas Unicorn too!
    
    It’s all right. I love you.
