Pass the peace.

.
Here's a little something for any Scroogy readers who may be feeling a bit humbuggy after getting crushed in a sea of power-shopping humanity on Black Friday last week (even though we encouraged you to stay home): Willie Nelson and Stephen Colbert have teamed up on a stirring, inspirational, and festive song that's destined to join "White Christmas" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" in the pantheon of holiday classics.


The Little Dealer Boy

I have no money in my coffer
No gold or silver do I bring

Nor have I precious jewels to offer

To celebrate the newborn king.


Yet do not spurn my gift completely

Oh ye three wise men, please demur

Behold a plant that smokes more sweetly

Than either Frankincense or Myrrh.


And like the child born in this manger

This herb is mild, yet it is strong

And it brings peace to friend and stranger

Good will to men lies in this bong.


(Chorus)

And now my wonderweed is flaring

Looks like that special star above

Pass it around in endless sharing

And let not mankind bogart love.


And the wise men started toking

And yea, the bud was kind

It was salvation they were smoking

And its forgiveness blew their mind.


(Chorus)

And still that wonderweed is flaring

Looked like that star was once above

Pass it around in endless sharing

And let not mankind bogart love.


And let not mankind bogart love.
