lyrics

verse 1:

Don't act like you don't get excited inside and feel giddy/ I know I've felt that way ever since I was kiddie/ used to go to bed early maybe 8 maybe 9/ then wake up at 5 am and open mines/ I knew Santa wasn't real my relatives bought the gifts/ every Christmas me and my cousin made a list/ of everything we wanted versus what we knew we'd get/ and were happy if the top gifts were complied with/ the good old days when you had more from’s than to's/ fore the paradigm shift when it was all about you/ before you got older and learned of the Christmas blues/ passed out on your pullout couch reeking of booze/ when you would go to bed but could barely even snooze/ sitting by the tree counting presents by the two's/ where at the very least you'd get a new fit and some shoes/ where even if your poor there's something in store for you

verse 2:

Man I hate the Christmas story, yeah I had to say it/ it wouldn't be so bad if TBS didn't play it/ for a whole day on the same day every year/ they need a new version where they let Ralphie swear/ and I swear I don't wear reindeer sweaters/ and egg nog with Courvoisier taste way better/ whether its ice skates or sledding snowflakes/ I treasure the winter wonderland the weather makes/ take a cruise late at night to check out the sights/ tiny fluorescent lights decorating homes bright/ tis the season to do good for no reason/ even if it’s something you normally don’t believe in/ cause just receiving can goods or a gift/ could change the outcome of someone's December 25th/ never mind how you find this holiday should be defined/ it happens once a year spread cheer at Christmas time
