CHRISTMAS WRAPPING (Chris Butler) The Waitresses - 1981 Bah, humbug! but 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 '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 eighty-one passed along those lines So, deck those halls, trim those trees Raise up cups of Christmas cheer I just need to catch my breath Christmas by myself this year (Instrumental Break) 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, we're both free We'd try, 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 Of course, I am excited Tonight's the night, I've set my mind Not to do too much about it (Instrumental Break) Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! But I think I'll miss this one this year Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! But I think I'll miss this one this year Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! But I think I'll miss this one this year Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! But I think I'll miss this one this year Hardly dashing through the snow Because I bundled up too tight Last minute, have to do A few cards, a few calls Because it's R.S.V.P No thanks, no party lights It's Christmas Eve, gotta relax Turned down all of 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 (Instrumental Break) 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 wandering eyes should appear In the line is that guy I've been chasin' all year "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 (Instrumental Break) Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Couldn't miss this one this year Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Couldn't miss this one this year Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Couldn't miss this one this year Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Couldn't miss this one this year Merry Christmas .......... FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2013)
