Advent 2019 Day 20: The Waitresses: Christmas Wrapping

középfok

Neked is van olyan érzésed néha a karácsonyi rohanásban, hogy jó lenne kiszállni ebből az egészből? A dal szereplője is így érzi magát, de aztán mégis jól végződik a történet. Hogy hogy fordul minden jóra? Hallgasd meg a dalban!

Bah Humbug, now 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 ’tis the season

The perfect gift for me would be

Completionsand 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

Chillthis room for twenty-four days

Evergreens. Sparkling snow

Get this winter over with!

Flash backto spring time saw him again

Would have 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 ’till summertime

Out to the beach to his boat

Could I join him?

No. This time it was me

Sunburnin 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

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

‘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

Turn downall 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 onhome 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

‘Spending this one alone, ‘ he said

‘Give me 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

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, 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, merry Christmas

Couldn’t miss this one this year.
