* "(I'm) The Angel in the Christmas Play" (1954) by Gayla Peevey, narrated by a naughty kid who cheerfully lists all her misdeeds before adding that she's been (ironically) assigned the title role.

* Yogi Yorgesson's "I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas" (1949). The narration in the middle describes a {{SerialEscalati|on}}ng quarrel-dispute-fight between the singer's side of the extended family and his wife's side. The middle gives us this gem that can't be unheard:
--> "Peace on Earth, goodwill toward men." \\
Yust at that moment, someone slugs Uncle Ben.



* "Nuttin' for Christmas" (1955) is sung by a little brat who not only revels in his wicked deeds, but also cheerfully lets a burglar into the house in exchange for a cut of the profits. They sing the last reprise of the chorus together. (The original version didn't have that ending, instead ending with the standard {{A|nAesop}}esop warning the listener to be good. The version with the burglar is performed by Creator/StanFreberg, and it is much, much funnier.)

* Creator/JoePesci's "If It Doesn't Snow on Christmas" (1998) takes a cheery old Gene Autry song and adopts it into his [[ClusterFBomb characteristically profane style]] (in character as [[Film/MyCousinVinny Vincent [=LaGuardia=] Gambini]]), complete with an ending tirade against the "fuckin' reform-school brats" who "stole all the fuckin' candy canes".

* Subverted by "Luk drømmene ind"[[hottip:translation:Let in the dreams]] from ChristmasOnVesterbro. The beginning of the song, which is all you'd hear during the credits, sounds exactly like this, taking every old Danish christmas tradition and singing about how they suck. The chorus says exactly what's awesome about christmas, ending in the line "shut the fuck up, open your heart and let in the dreams"[[hottip:in Danish:"Luk din røv, luk hjertet op og luk drømmene ind]]

Added DiffLines:

* While most of the Punk Goes Christmas (2013) compilation album could count as this by itself, the 11th track "This Christmas (I'll Burn It To The Ground)" by Pop Punk band Set It Off is a perfect example of this trope from start to finish. The title is not just there for kicks, that is what the song is actually about.
--> This Christmas, I'll burn it to the ground!
\\
This Christmas, Santa's skipping town!\\

This Christmas, everything will change, when they see the flames\\

This Christmas day!
