  • Originally from the 1981 EP- "I Could Rule The World If I Could Only Get the Parts" (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Bah, Humbug! But 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, tea 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 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, '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 I've set my mind up
    To not do 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

    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
    Doin' 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 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...
