In the end though, I hope that the "singer" of this song will come to the realization that John is not nearly the mean guy he thought he was and that in fact John means to do a great deal of good; it just so happens that our Old Man has a different meaning of good and John has a different definition of Christmas.
You’re a mean one, John the Baptizer
You really are a fright
You’re a locust eating vagrant, the Christmas Kryptonite, John the Baptizer
You smell like a camel’s rear and your leather britches are too tight.
