  • Song Lyrics:
    Where's that shopping list?
    I thought it was on the table
    Think we need more ribbon and maybe a roll of shopping wrapping paper
    Now the toy store closes at nine; I'll be getting something for the neighbor
    You know I confess, I could do without this mess
    It's really a lot of stress...and I'll never be ready
    Makes me want to forget the whole idea
    I guess Dickens said it best..."Bah Humbug!"

    Monkey's in a barrel and that Christmas music's driving me craaaazy!

    Blue Christmas, that's the way you see it when you're feeling blue
    Blue Xmas, when you're blue at Christmastime
    you see right through,
    All the sham, all the haste, all the waste
    and plain old bad taste

    Sidewalk Santa Clauses are much, much, much too thin
    Wearing fancy rented costumes, false beards and phony grins
    And everybody's standing round holding out their empty hand or tin cup
    Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme
    Fill my stocking up
    All the way up
    It's a time when the greedy give a dime to the needy
    Blue Christmas, all the paper, tinsel and the fal-de-ral
    Blue Xmas, people trading gifts that matter not at all
    What I call

    Lots of hungry, homeless children in your own backyard
    While you're very, very busy addressing
    Twenty zillion Christmas cards
    Now, Yuletide is the season to receive and give and ahh, to share
    But all you December do-gooders rush around and loudly rant and rave and blare
    Merry Christmas
    I hope you have a bright one, but for me, it's blue

    (instrumental interval)

    And now it over
    Streets full of garbage
    And another Happy New Year's come and gone
    And they're taking back the presents
    that they never really wanted
    and business is as usual going on

    Well I'm disgusted and I'm walkin'
    My credit card's exhausted
    and I see a stripped down Christmas tree in the gutter
    And I wonder about the trouble and the pain and anxiety
    experienced by some poor single struggling mother
    trying to bring some Christmas cheer to the children

    Charity begins in January
    It should carry on down to December
    So remember when you say...

    Merry Christmas
    I hope yours is a bright one, but for me, it's blue
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
