Tips for American expats: if you're feeling homesick during the holidays, avoid christmas carols and listen to Aaron Copeland instead. This really will grind in the feelings of displaced despair.

'Lord of the dance' is a plagiarism, by the way. The original lyrics are:

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free

'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,

And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,

To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed,

To turn, turn will be our delight,

Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.

@celesteh That's surely an Easter song, though? Anyway, Iove Sydney Carter and you should listen to John Ball if you don't know it
