CHRISTMAS WRAPPING LYRICS











boys & gurls...i have had many requests to reprint these...so here ya go:

CHRISTMAS WRAPPING

bah! humbug! no...that's too strong, 'cause it is my favorite 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 those 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 24 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 the 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...think I'll miss this one this year

..............

hardly dashing through the snow, 'cause I bundled up too tight
last minute have-to-dos, a few cards, a few calls

because it's RSVP, no thanks, no party lights

it's Christmas Eve, gonna 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

..............

the 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!

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

.......

I think you should throw the paintings out--she obviously doesn't want them anymore.
