I Never Know What Gifts To Buy, Do You? is sung by Geppetto in Pinocchio's Christmas after he sends Pinocchio to school. He speaks to himself in a mirror to debate what gifts to buy for those he cares about, and imagines his reflection is disregarding his ideas. After the song, he admits he is too poor to afford a better meal then oatmeal, let alone buy presents for Pinocchio, and realizes he has to sell something in favor of his "son's" first Christmas.

Lyrics

Geppetto: I never know what gifts to buy, do you?

Reflection: Eh, Never

Geppetto: On all my lists are scarfs and ties, you too?

Reflection: Me too.

Geppetto: I never know the size of gloves
the length of sleeves
the color she loves
And every time I buy a book they've read it

Reflection: I've read it

Geppetto: Christmas gifts

Reflection: You're right.

Geppetto: Forget it.
A scarf is nice. Warm

Reflection: Dull

I never know what gifts to buy, do you?
On all my lists are things scratched out

Reflection: Me too

Geppetto: For shoes and socks are strictly "No's"
And hats are tough
Does she like bows

Reflection: And if I buy a sweater they'll return it.

Geppetto: True

Reflection: Christmas Gifts! Well, darn it!

Geppetto: A tie will be nice
Red and blue
Ooh, exicting

Reflection: Dull

Both: I never know What gifts to buy, do you? On all my lists are scarfs and ties, you too?

Reflection: I guess this year you'll do the same.

Geppetto: I'll burn the list and to each name
I'll send my best regards and then forget it

Reflection: Forget it

Geppetto: Christmas gifts!

Both: I never know what gifts to buy
Forget it
