December

Presents galore
Shopping’s a bore
This season’s a little costly

The Malls all are packed
The retailers are quacks
Little Toddlers sit on Santas’ laps

The Season is near
It’s almost here
So hold on
Cause it’s gonna get rough
So hold on
Cause it’s gonna get tough
Until the New Year

It’s below freezing
Long way till spring
My hands keep going numb

There’s no foothold
Out in the cold
Warmth a distant memory

The Season is near
It’s almost here
So hold on
Cause it’s gonna get rough
So hold on
Cause it’s gonna get tough
Until the New Year

Santa’s ho – ho - ing
I’m stuck snow-blowing
Life can’t get any worse

Here comes the snowplow
Making sure to allow
School the very next day

The season is here
I need some (root) beer
So hold on
Since it’s getting real bad
So hold on
Since it’s getting real sad
Until the next spring
