SpongeBob (in Lego form) singing the song in the music video.

"Don't Be a Jerk (It's Christmas)" is a Christmas song sung by SpongeBob SquarePants, released as a bonus track on the 2009 album SpongeBob's Greatest Hits. The song was used in a fan-made music video, animated in stop-motion with the SpongeBob SquarePants Lego toys, for the 2008 Nicktoons Network Animation Festival.

The song was later featured in the series' second Christmas special, It's a SpongeBob Christmas! In the episode, SpongeBob and Sandy find that the song's music works as an antidote to Plankton's jerktonium-laced fruitcake, so SpongeBob sings the song to everyone in Bikini Bottom, returning them to their normal forms.

Ahoy, everybody! SpongeBob here. Christmas means presents and mistletoe, sharing and caring, so during this most festive season, please, don't be a jerk.
Bring joy to the world; it's the thing to do,
But the world does not revolve around you.
Don't be a jerk,
It's Christmas!
There's a sign above the line that says "Express",
That means ten items or less.
Don't be a jerk (don't be a jerk)
It's Christmas
Be nice to babies and animals, old folks too!
'Cause that's how you'd like them to treat you!
Use turn signals, don't scream my calls,
Don't you wreck my house, when you deck the halls!
Spit your gum where it won't wind up on my shoe,
Squeeze toothpaste from the bottom of the tube.
Don't be a jerk, (don't be a jerk)
It's Christmas!
It's Christmas!
[instrumental break]
When others are talking, never interrupt.
Don't put people down, or leave the toilet seat up.
It's the time for family, and holly, and turkey,
'Tis the season to be jolly, not jerky! (jolly not jerky)
Don't dig in the cereal box for goodness sakes,
Take the prize and leave me nothing but flakes.
Don't be a jerk, (don't be a jerk)
It's Christmas!
Santa brought nearly every gift on your list,
Why whine about the one that he missed?
Don't be a jerk, (don't be a jerk)
It's Christmas!
It's Christmas!
Don't be a jerk, (don't be a jerk)
It's Christmas!
Don't be a jerk, (don't be a jerk)
It's Christmas!
[Repeat til fade]
