Sorry, my positive attitude didn't last very long.
That song about some kid asking some man to give him money to buy his mother shoes b/c she is dying. Hate it. I mean seriously? Why in the world does anyone want to listen to that at the holidays? No matter what holiday you may/may not celebrate this time of year, I'm pretty sure if you are celebrating it's a happy occasion. It's the CELEBRATION of something. So, why are we singing about a poor kid whose mother is dying and needs to borrow some cash?
Does anyone else understand this?
