lyrics

paper cuts on my fingers
tinsel in my hair
egg nog flavor lingers
red-nosed reindeer underwear

mornings are hard
even without the snow
i’ve got to shovel the yard
where did christmas go?

woe woe christmas cheer
here for a day, then gone for a year
hey hey my conscience aches
time to plan resolutions i know i will break

(break) the dawn rose-cheeked children arise
snug in their pjs they tip toe like spies and find
a christmas tree kaleidascope, piles of delights
my son points out last years piles
were two times the height

woe woe xmas cheer
here for a day then gone for a year
aye-aye santa claus came to town
antici-pointment, expectations shot down

(down) the chimney delivered by sleigh
answers to prayers, though my kids rarely pray
the sharp smell of pine hides
the prick of the needles
she wanted bo bice, all she got was the beatles

woe woe christmas cheer
here for a day, then gone for a year
no no don’t tally the cost
just drink to the saviour, though all appears lost
love love don’t get me wrong
there’s love at the top and the bottom of this song
love love so much you could cry
all of the love that your money could buy

(by) the fireplace stocking and toys
that vibrating football game
sure makes a lot of noise
my girl stands waist deep in her presents and cries
a toast, here’s to wisdom
it’s best left to the wise

woe woe xmas cheer
here for a day then gone for a year
hark hark a madman’s design
it’s probably best that we left it behind

come november
we’ll no longer remember
start counting the days
lost in yuletide haze
