Miranda Cosgrove - Christmas Wrapping

rate me

<BR>

Bah, humbug! No, that's too strong<br>

'Cause it is my favorite holiday <br>

But all this year's been a busy blur <br>

Don't think I have the energy <br>

To add to my already mad rush <br>

Just 'cause it's 'tis the season. <br>

The perfect gift for me would be <br>

Completions and connections left from <br>

Last year, ski shop, Encounter, most interesting. <br>

Had his number but never the time <br>

Most of '81 passed along those lines. <br>

So deck those halls, trim those trees <br>

Raise up cups of Christmas cheer, <br>

I just need to catch my breath, <br>

Christmas by myself this year. <br>

Calendar picture, frozen landscape, <br>

Chilled this room for twenty-four days, <br>

Evergreens, sparkling snow <br>

Get this winter over with! <br>

Flashback to springtime, saw him again, <br>

Would've been good to go for lunch, <br>

Couldn't agree when we were both free, <br>

We tried, we said we'd keep in touch.<br>

Didn't, of course, 'til summertime, <br>

Out to the beach to his boat could I join him? <br>

No, this time it was me, <br>

Sunburn in the third degree. <br>

Now the calendar's just one page and, of course, I am excited <br>

Tonight's the night, but I've set my mind <br>

Not to do too much about it. <br>

<br>

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! But I think I'll miss this one this year.<br>

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! But I think I'll miss this one this year. <br>

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! But I think I'll miss this one this year. <br>

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! But I think I'll miss this one this year. <br>

<br>

Hardly dashing through the snow <br>

Cause I bundled up too tight <br>

Last minute have-to-do's <br>

A few cards a few calls<br>

'Cause it's r-s-v-p <br>

No thanks, no party lights <br>

It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax <br>

Turned down all of my invites. <br>

Last fall I had a night to myself, <br>

Same guy called, Halloween party, <br>

Waited all night for him to show, <br>

This time his car wouldn't go, <br>

Forget it, it's cold, it's getting late, <br>

Trudge on home to celebrate <br>

In a quiet way, unwind <br>

Doing Christmas right this time. <br>

A&P has provided me <br>

With the world's smallest turkey <br>

Already in the oven, nice and hot <br>

Oh damn! <br>

Guess what I forgot? <br>

So on with the boots, back out in the snow <br>

To the only all-night grocery, <br>

When what to my wondering eyes should appear<br>

In the line is that guy <br>

I've been chasing all year! <br>

"I'm spending this one alone," he said. <br>

"Need a break; this year's been crazy." <br>

I said, "Me too, but why are you? You mean you forgot cranberries too?" <br>

Then suddenly we laughed and laughed <br>

Caught on to what was happening <br>

That Christmas magic's brought this tale <br>

To a very happy ending!<br>

<br>

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Couldn't miss this one this year!<br>

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Couldn't miss this one this year!<br>
