Track Name: holiday spirit (intro)
"i think there must be something wrong with me, linus. christmas is coming, but i'm not happy. i don't feel the way i'm supposed to feel. i just don't understand christmas, i guess. i like getting presents and sending christmas cards, and decorating trees and all that, but i'm still not happy. i always end up feeling depressed."

make sure you get everyones presents
rack up that credit debt
it's the worst time of the year
so spend spend spend spend spend your time alone
Track Name: christmas eve
i wanna get kissed under mistletoe
but i'm a huge pussy and everyone says no
there's nothing that special about tonight
but i wish i was smooching a girl that i like
every single year i'm extra desperate
so i'm getting drunk in a chinese restaurant
nothing has changed in the last few years
hopefully santa finally brings me some tears

but santa's not real
so if you hear some shuffling downstairs, then you should call the police
santa's not real
so you can stay up as late as you want on christmas eve

and i hate wrapping christmas presents
it takes so much fucking effort
i always put it off until i'm drunk
so all of my gifts look like fucking shit
and every Christmas morning i'm disappointed
cause all i want for Christmas is a pretty girlfriend
i don't think i'm gonna get one this year
but it'd be pretty fresh if santa hooked me up this once

but santa's not real
so if you hear some shuffling downstairs, then you should call the police
santa's not real
so you can stay up as late as you want on christmas eve
santa's not real
so if you're naughty or you're nice, it really doesn't change a thing
santa's not real
so do whatever the fuck you want, who fucking cares
Track Name: christmas day
i used to wake up at 8 am until i got older
now it's noon on Christmas and i'm so hungover
it's not like it really matters anyway
cause i'm not a little kid and i'm way too jaded
the only reason that i'm awake before 1
is cause i smelt my mom making cinnabons
and those are the fucking bomb
i'm gonna to eat those and not have fun today

when i walk down the stairs
and see the christmas tree
i get so depressed
cause no ones kissing me
when we open gifts
none of them make me smile
cause gifts are pretty chill
but a girlfriend would be tight

christmas isn't exciting anymore
i wish i was a kid with a bunch of toys
or had a girlfriend to hold my hand
but instead I'm on the couch not wearing pants
i'm gonna start drinking early beers
cause tonight is gonna suck like every year
so I'm gonna eat some decent chinese food
and punch my brothers best friend cause it's fun to do

when i walk down the stairs
and see the Christmas tree
i get so depressed
cause no ones kissing me
i'd still be so annoyed
if I had to buy my girlfriend something nice
but i'd have a christmas bae
that I could chill with christmas night
Track Name: christmas night
i don't feel much like myself
but i don't feel like someone else
i don't think that you can tell
cause i'm always making jokes

it's just a cover up
insecurities really suck
and i'm a stupid duck
i keep quacking, you keep laughing
while i'm pacing in the bathroom
the sink is running, water splashing
on my face, while i tell myself "it's just one night"

that's why i hate christmas night
every year i relive this shit
it sucks

i wish both hands were on the wheel
"now you know how i feel"
and the next day when i woke up
i've never been more shit out of luck
i hope there's not a fire this year
hope there's not a fire this year
hope there's not a fire this year
if there is one, i'll be in it
i'll stand there until it's finished
and if i make it through the heat
maybe i'll get kissed this new year's eve
Track Name: new year's eve
this party fucking sucks
everyone's too dressed up
i feel so fucking dumb
i wish she would shut up

i'm getting way too drunk
i feel so out of place
another year has passed
no one has kissed my face

it's almost midnight
so find a girl or boy to smooch
it's almost New Years
you better make sure that they're cute

i'm not getting kissed tonight
