Why, Wynonna? Why?

The chorus on this failer really grabs your attention:

Yes, that’s right:

Let’s make a baby king
Let’s make him Lord of all
Let’s give him everything
Let’s make a baby king

There’s a mystery here. The rest of the song of the song is a conventional account of and analysis of Jesus’ birth and life (with the mistaken notion slipped in there that Jesus’ chief purpose was to be a moral exemplar). The chorus is actually designed to be the voice of angels heralding the coming of Christ.

Instead, it envisions Mary as a cast member on Teen Mom casually discussing the whole pregnancy idea with no-goodnik boyfriend Joseph. And that’s enough to qualify “Let’s Make a Baby King” as an all-time Christmas Spirit Fail contender.
