Originally by Donny Hathaway. Heavily inspired by The Dismemberment Plan's cover. Lyrics in the third verse are original.
And though the snow won't likely fall
and online stores will kill our mall traditions
with red-and-snowflake Starbucks cups
displayed beneath a silver tinsel tree,
we'll keep our
spirits high and wish we might
forget how we're just marking time.
