SPOTLIGHT ON CHRISTMAS
By Rufus Wainwright
From the McGarrigle Christmas Hour

People love the working man
Who does the best that he can
But don't forget all the horses and toys
Never could fix the poor, little, rich boys

People say they love the maid
Who sweats and toils just like a slave
But don't forget all the diamonds and pearls
Never could fix the poor little rich girls

You can measure it in blood
You can measure it in mud
Let us say for these twelve days
Put the measuring away

'Cause it's Christmas
And the spotlight's shining on Christmas
And the spotlight's shining on us

People love and people hate
People go and people wait
But don't forget Jesus, Mary and Joseph
Once were a family poor but rich in hope, yeah

Don't forget Jesus, Mary and Joseph
Running from the law, King Herod had imposeth
And they were each one quite odd
And mensch, a virgin and a God

But don't forget that what kept them aflow
Floating through the desert doesn't take a boat, no
Don't forget that what kept them above
Is unconditional love

And you can measure it in blood
You can measure it in mud
Let us say for these twelve days
Put the measuring away

'Cause it's Christmas
And the spotlight's shining on Christmas
And the spotlight's shining on us
And the spotlight's shining on Christmas
And the spotlight's shining on

People love the working man
Who does the best that he can
But don't forget all the horses and toys
Never could fix the poor, little, rich boys

Nope, the other one is apparently by Jackson Browne and is in the Trad. But I didn't find this one (spotlight) before posting it.
