PAUL SIMON

PAUL SIMON - Getting Ready For Christmas Day

rate me

From early in November to the last week of December

I got money matters weighing me down

Well the music may be merry but it’s only temporary

I know Santa Claus is coming to town

In the days I work my day job

In the nights I work my night

But it all comes down to working man's pay

Getting ready I’m getting ready ready for Christmas day

I got a nephew in Iraq

It’s his third time back

But it's ending up the way it began

With the luck of a beginner

He’ll be eating turkey dinner

On some mountain top in Pakistan

Getting ready oh we’re getting ready

For the power and the glory and the story

Of Christmas day (repeats)

If I could tell my mom and dad

That the things we never had

Never mattered we were always ok

Getting ready ready ready for Christmas day

Ready getting ready

For the power and the glory and the story

Of Christmas day
