What Ariana Grande, Megan Thee Stallion, and Jimmy Fallon’s ‘It Was A… (Masked Christmas)’ Lyrics Mean

Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion gave Jimmy Fallon the gift of appearing on his very 2021 COVID pandemic-appropriate Christmas song “It Was A… (Masked Christmas),” which came out last night during his show. Fallon explained that it was Grande who suggested Megan do the rap portion of the song. The three really went all out shooting the music video for it, which you can watch below.

Of the song’s meaning, Fallon said on The Tonight Show, “It’s basically about how last year was just rough on everybody. I wanted to say ‘it’s going to get better. It really is going to get better, trust me,’ and how can I portray that? And also think about what funny things have happened while we were in lockdown, like putting Purell on everything or going on a Zoom, Zooming your grandpa and grandma and seeing where the Wi-Fi works best. So I write this song.”

Grande was the dream singer to do it, and after Fallon and his team approached her, she eventually texted Fallon and said, “Jimmy, I love the song. I’m in.” Megan, when asked to do the song, was just as enthusiastic, texting back, per Fallon, “I can do a song with my besties Ariana and Jimmy? I’m in. When do we shoot the video?”

The video itself is a treat, from everyone’s over-the-top holiday looks to Megan wearing vaccine needles as nails.

Intro: Megan Thee Stallion
What’s up, y’all?
It’s Megan Thee Stallion, Ariana Grande and Jimmy Fallon
Y’all know what time it is
It’s time to get those boosters
Hahaha, ah

Chorus: Jimmy Fallon & Ariana Grande


It was a masked Christmas, we stayed in the house
We covered our nose and covered our mouth
But it’s Christmas time
We’ll be in line for a booster (For a booster)
It was a masked Christmas
We hopped on a Zoom (Hopped on a Zoom)
I can only get Wi-Fi in the laundry room (Laundry room)
But it’s Christmas time
We’ll be in line for a booster

Verse 1: Ariana Grande & Jimmy Fallon


I need somebody to hold tonight
’Cause it’s gonna snow (’Cause it’s gonna snow)
I need somebody to hold me tight
And never lеt go (Never let go)
So say that you’rе coming home
You know it’s Christmas Eve
Last year I was here alone
Don’t tell me this year’s the same (Say it’s not the same)
The same

Chorus: Jimmy Fallon & Ariana Grande


It was a masked Christmas, we stayed in the house (We stayed in the house)
We covered our nose and covered our mouth (And covered our mouth)
But it’s Christmas time
We’ll be in line for a booster (For a booster)
It was a masked Christmas
We hopped on a Zoom (Hopped on a Zoom)
I can only get Wi-Fi in the laundry room (Laundry room)
But it’s Christmas time
We’ll be in line for a booster

Verse 2: Megan Thee Stallion & Ariana Grande


Ay, ay, ay
This Christmas I’ma make it count (Make it count)
No more quarantine on the couch (Yeah)
This year hang that mistletoe (Mistletoe)
I’ma kiss everybody that I know (Muah)
This year’s different, you can tell
Deck those halls and jingle bells
Put Purell on everything (What?)
Turkey, egg nog, candy cane (Ooh)
Hey ho, there’s a good chance of snow
Hey ho, somebody wipe Rudolph’s nose
Ho hey, I promise we’ll be okay
’Cause now we’re in line for a booster

Chorus: Jimmy Fallon & Ariana Grande

It was a masked Christmas, we stayed in the house (We stayed in the house)
We covered our nose and covered our mouth (And covered our mouth)
But it’s Christmas time
We’ll be in line for a booster (For a booster)
It was a masked Christmas
We hopped on a Zoom (Hopped on a Zoom)
I can only get Wi=Fi in the laundry room (Laundry room)
But it’s Christmas time
We’ll be in line for a booster (For a booster)
