Lyrics

Bah humbug! No that's too strong
Cause it is my favourite holiday
But all this year's been a busy blur
Don't think I have the energy

To add to my already mad rush
Just cause it's tis the season
The perfect gift for me would be
Completions and connections left from

Last year, ski shop
Encounter, most interesting
Had his number, but never the time
Most of '81 passed along those lines

So deck the halls, trim those trees
Raise up cups of Christmas cheer
I just need to catch my breath
Christmas by myself this year

Calendar picture, frozen landscape
Chilled this room for twenty four days
Evergreens, sparkling snow
Get this winter over with

Flashback to springtime, saw him again
Would've been good to go for lunch
Couldn't agree when we were both free
We tried, we said we'd keep in touch

Didn't of course til summertime
Out to the beach to his boat could I join him?
No, this time it was me
Sunburn in the third degree

Now the calendar's just one page
And, of course I am excited
Tonight's the night, but I've set my mind
Not to do too much about it

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I'll think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I'll think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I'll think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I'll think I'll miss this one this year

Hardly dashing through the snow
Cause I bundled up too tight
Last minute have-to-do's
A few cards a few calls
Cause it's r-s-v-p
No thanks, no party lights
It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax
Turned down all my invites

Last fall I had a night to myself
Same guy called, Halloween party
Waited all night for him to show
This time his car wouldn't go

Forget it, it's cold, it's getting late
Trudge on home to celebrate
In a quiet way, unwind
Doing Christmas right this time

A&P has provided me
With the world's smallest turkey
Already in the oven, nice and hot
Oh damn! Guess what I forgot?

So on with the boots, back out in the snow
To the only all-night grocery
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
In the line is that guy I've been chasing all year!

I'm spending this one alone he said
Need a break, this year's been crazy
I said Me too, but why are you?
You mean you forgot cranberries too?

Then suddenly we laughed and laughed
Caught on to what was happening
That Christmas magic's brought this tale
To a very happy ending!

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
Couldn't miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
Couldn't miss this one this year!
