Listen: Matt Hart’s Christmas Song “Agree to Disagree”

The holidays can be a time full of uncomfortable encounters

Going home for the holidays is always a bittersweet moment. One one hand you get to see your family again, and on the other hand, you get to see your family again.

But heading back to the likely small town and or suburb you grew up in is also full of uncomfortable encounters with old classmates, distant friends and the “small-minded rubes” that you outgrew. Maybe you see them in the local bar, at the grocery stores, or they could even be sitting across from you at the dinner table.

That’s why our residence music man Matt Hart wrote this holiday jingle for you to celebrate those uncomfortable encounters, narrow-minded dinner table rhetoric and borderline racists you’re sharing a meal with.

Listen and download “Agree to Disagree” below.

It’s the Holidays and this the time of year where we get into a lot of arguments, whether it’s at a family dinner – or with the small minded rubes in your tiny hometown
But there are 3 words you can remember to get you through the season: Agree to disagree

We fight about gifts, about socks, about sweaters, about who made this gravy and why I make it better

And how is your love life? your mom’s always askin’ and whatever happened to that nice girl named Katherine?

Aunt Chardonnay Cheryl always trying to impress us by braggin’ about her son’s minor successes

I’m biting my tongue, Lord I’m trying to be patient when I hear my Grandpa start talking bout immigration

I just Agree to Disagree around the table around the tree and realize I’m being trolled by an 80 year old

Agree to disagree around the table around the tree try to avoid a fight you’re only here for the night

My home town bar’s one of my favourite places To drink terrible beer and talk to borderline racists

And the hippies in this town with their fears of pollution think that vaping their weed is an eco solution

You try to leave the scene with a graceful maneuver just to end up outside in a town without uber

They’ve still got payphones so call for a ride …in your weird cousin Rick’s truck and once you’re inside

Agree to disagree on his poor choice of cd

and gently ask why does he, only plays I.C.P.?

Agree to disagree on his poor choice of CD, he think’s Limp Bizkit’s real deep and broke up at their peak

Agree to disagree around the table around the tree try to avoid a fight you’re only here for the night

Agree to disagree these 3 words will set you free cause even when their the worst remember family comes first
