    Lyrics

    "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 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 when we were both free,
    We tried, 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
    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!
    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-do's
    A few cards a few calls
    'Cause it's r-s-v-p
    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.

    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!

    "I'm 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!
    Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
    Couldn't miss this one this year!
