  • The B side of their 1987 single "Elvis Bought Dora A Cadillac." (IRS, 651231 7) (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    There's been snow covered Christmases
    And ones just of rain
    Of smoked hams and warm bread
    And shiny toy trains

    And though they've always been different
    They've all been the best
    Yet there's one I remember
    More tenderly than all the rest

    It all began with Uncle Jack
    He made a crack and wouldn't take it back
    Dad was drinking, an' he got sore

    There was a flash, and a crash
    It took the manger on the floor

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Shouldn't have given him a gun, gun, gun
    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Look what Daddy has done, done, done!

    He put two slugs into the neighbor's door
    And kicked upon the manger scene
    The plastic baby Jesus he blew to smithereens

    I can't think about the nine year olds
    Who won't be seeing ten
    Or how he went a-caroling to the doors of now dead men!
    Oh..

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Shouldn't have given him a gun, gun, gun
    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Look what Daddy has done, done, done!

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Shouldn't have given him a gun, gun, gun
    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Look what Daddy has done, done, done!

    "O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum
    Wie treu sind deine Biätter!

    Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit
    Nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit

    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum
    Wie treu sind deine Biätter!
    Of course I could repeat this later on, but now-"

    Oooo, yeah!

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Shouldn't have given him a gun, gun, gun
    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Look what Daddy has done, done, done!

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Shouldn't have given him a gun, gun, gun
    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Look what Daddy has done, done, done!

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Shouldn't have given him a gun, gun, gun
    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Look what Daddy has done, done, done!

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas!

    Look what Daddy has done, done, done!

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Shouldn't have given him a gun, gun, gun
    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas
    Look what Daddy has done, done, done!

    Shouldn't have given him a gun for Christmas...
