Once again, Maureen is way ahead of me with the Mraz spotting. She let me know that Jason has a new holiday message up on his site, and it’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen him do. And that’s saying something.
Put your balls into it,
Update 12/23/08: It’s not quite as good as closed captioning, but if you want to have a sing along with friends, here are the words/lyrics to Jason’s Merry Holidays video/song.
Hi, and merry, jolly times. I’m Jason Mraz.
You know, as an international traveler, I have a really special opportunity to give unique gifts this season.
For instance, for my elderly acquaintances, I give the gift of life, by paying for their medication, cheaply, in foreign countries.
My sister’s going to love these Ritz-Carlton towels, and slippers.
Mom loves lotion and soaps.
For dad, it’s another year’s subscription to Sky Mall.
For my brother, I just got myself this new iPod. Why don’t you join me in the singing of this timeless Christmas classic?
Happy Christmas time
Happy Christ-mas time
What an awesome time of year
To celebrate Christmas cheer
Wherever you go
You may find lots of snow
Unless you’re livin’ in the southern hemisphere
Merry cou-ple of days
What a wintery way to say
I’m not workin’
It’s a time for you to be you
And a time to go and see how grandma’s doin’
And maybe she’ll have some money too
And oh yeah, the presents!
The way they overflow
from the belly of the Christmas tree
And oh ho ho ho ho, here comes Santa
To say the very best things in life
You can have for free
Everybody, put your balls into it!
Merry couple of days
Make it a Nat-King-Bing-Crosby-Charles-Dickensy kind of thing
So whatever you’re planning on giving this holiday season, give from the heart. But most importantly, make sure you have a merry couple of days.
