Strum Two Verses

A
"Bah, humbug!" No, that's too strong
A
'Cause it is my favorite holiday

D
But all this year's been a busy blur
C B
Don't think I have the energy

A
To add to my already mad rush
A
Just 'cause it 'tis the season.
D
The perfect gift for me would be
C B
Com pletions and connections left from

A
Last year, ski shop,
A
Encounter, most interesting.
D
Had his number but never the time
C B
Most of '81 passed along those lines.

A
So deck those halls, trim those trees
A
Raise up cups of Christmas cheer,
D
I just need to catch my breath,
E A
Christmas by my self this year.

A
Calendar picture, frozen landscape,
A
Chilled this room for twenty-four days,
D
Evergreens, sparkling snow
C B
Get this winter over with!

A
Flashback to springtime, saw him again,
A
Would've been good to go for lunch,
D
Couldn't agree when we were both free.
C B
We tried, we said we'd keep in touch.

A
Didn't, of course, 'til summertime,
A
Out to the beach to his boat could I join him?
D
No, this time it was me,
C B
Sunburn in the third degree.

A
Now the calendar's just one page
A
And, of course, I am excited.
D
Tonight's the night, I've set my mind
E A
Not to do too much about it.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
E A
But I think I'll miss this one this year.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

But I think I'll miss this one this year.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

But I think I'll miss this one this year.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
E A
But I think I'll miss this one this year.

A
Hardly dashing through the snow
A
'Cause I bundled up too tight.
D
Last minute, had to do
C B
A few cards, a few calls,

A
Because it's R. S. V. P.
A
No thanks, no party lights.
D
It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax,
C B
Turned down all of my invites.

A
Last fall I had a night to myself,
A
Same guy called, Halloween party,
D
Waited all night for him to show,
C B
This time his car wouldn't go.

A
For get it, it's cold, it's getting late,
A
Trudge on home to celebrate
D
In a quiet way, unwind
E A
Doing Christmas right this time.

A
A&P has provided me
A
With the world's smallest turkey
D
Already in the oven, nice and hot
C B
Oh damn! Guess what I forgot?

A
So on with the boots, back out in the snow
A
To the only all-night grocery,
D
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
C B
In the line is that guy I've been chasing all year!

A
"I'm spending this one alone," he said.
A
"Need a break; this year's been crazy."
D
I said, "Me too, but why are you?
C B
You mean you forgot cranberries too?"

A
Then suddenly we laughed and laughed
A
Caught on to what was happening
D
That Christmas magic's brought this tale
E A
To a very happy ending!
