    If I Was Santa Claus

    If I was a rich man
    I'd buy you some shoes
    Tall boots for all the dirt you walk through
    What would that do?
    Enable you to deal
    Without schooling you on how to touch what's real
    And if I was a smart man
    I'd tell you everything that I knew
    And give it to you every time you need a talking to
    But what would that do?
    Teach you my guidelines
    So you can be a cheerleader at your game on the sidelines
    And if I was a driver
    I'd keep my headlights on
    To see the difference between right and wrong
    I'd wear my seatbelt even when I'm in park
    Cause I don't trust the other fools that cruise through these parts
    And if I was a better cook
    I'd hook up a feast
    Set a table full of food for the children to eat
    I encourage the nourishment so we can breathe
    With the knowledge that we got something accomplished


    And if I was Santa Claus, I'd fight for the cause
    Wouldn't expect nothing in return
    I'd give you everything you want, I'd be everything you need
    So you can take my hand and I can take the lead

    And if I was an honest man
    I would stop writing songs
    I'd break for a nervous breakdown for breakfast
    Tell everyone I knew to stay away from making music
    It ain't nothing but a confusing mess (confusing mess)
    And if I was you, I wouldn't hear a word I said
    Wouldn't trust nothing to start it up inside my head
    I'd make a conscious effort to live instead
    Of trying to kill the monsters that reside underneath the bed
    And if I was a hurt man
    I'd find a way to put my faith
    Into a woman that could take me from today
    Maybe
    I need somebody that could save me
    From the parts of myself that keep making me crazy
    And if I was a wise man
    I'd climb to the top of the mountain peak
    To think about strength versus weakness
    I'd find a point that rests a couple of feet above your head
    And figure out how I could try to help you reach it
    (Ho ho ho)
    And if I did have a choice
    I'd never want to live forever
    Just let me have a voice so I can make my points
    I can't imagine running a race with no finish line
    Just let me keep my pace and make to most of my time
    I love giving but I'm bad at receiving
    The truth is, I'd prefer to be the one bleeding
    But I'm a paranoid that stays between play and work
    Cautious and aware, 'cause I'm afraid of being hurt
    Which brings me to the issue
    And that would be this:
    How often must I ask myself why I exist?
    I feel like a freak, this world is a circus
    Just trying to find myself as well as my purpose


    And if I was Santa Claus, I'd fight for the cause
    Wouldn't expect nothing in return
    I'd give you everything you want, I'd be everything you need
    And you can take my hand and I can take the lead

    I got nothing but gifts
    Keep it up in my wits
    Got me drunk on the fifth
    And now we're stuck in a ditch
    And as dumb as it gets
    I'mma run you some fibs (?)
    I wanna touch your lips
    I wanna rub your hips
    Put a glove on the fist
    For the love that exists
    We'll keep bumping the hits
    To get my bucket of chips
    From the Bloods and the Crips
    To the skateboarding chicks
    Put the Atmosphere on your Christmas wishlist
    (Ho ho ho ho)
