The 30 Most Disturbing Christmas Song Lyrics

The 30 Most Disturbing Christmas Song Lyrics. Christmas is right around the corner, and it’s time to go buy those decorations that’ll get you in the holiday spirit. As you’re walking around the store, you’ll probably hear cheery music. Actually, you’ll probably hear cheery holiday music no matter where you’re going—the grocery store, a department store, or even driving around town!

Most of us have heard these songs time and time again. By now, we tend to tune them out and not pay much attention, but maybe we should. If we listen closely, some of the songs are kinda pretty…disturbing, to say the least.

It’s kind of like the old child nursery rhyme “Ring Around the Rosie.” The song may seem innocent enough but listening to it (and learning the history) paints a pretty grim picture of what the song is actually about. Some say it is about children dying from the plague while others claim it’s a pagan song about light. A lot of the old songs we have listened to and sang year after year are pretty disturbing.

Well, we won’t say whether or not these Christmas songs are as dark as “Ring Around the Rosie,” but we can tell you that they have some questionable undertones and inappropriate interpretations. Needless to say, some classics just haven’t aged well. Here are 30 Christmas songs that have lyrics you may have never noticed, but listening closely may make you never want to hear the songs ever again.
