BLUES CHRISTMAS

I BOUGHT MY CHRISTMAS TREE LAST SEPTEMBER
JUST TO SAVE A BUCK OR TWO
NOW IT STANDS HERE STARK AND QUITE DISMEMBERED
AND THE ANGEL'S LOST HER SHOE

LATELY I'VE BEEN PRONE TO SOME DEPRESSION
I'M NOT REALLY SURE WHAT AILS
MY POINSETTA'S DEAD BUT MY ONE CONCESSION
I BOUGHT IT IN LAST NEW YEAR'S SALE

MAN O MAN IT'S COLD, THE ROOF IS LEAKING
AND I THINK I'VE CAUGHT A CHILL
ALL THE POWER'S OUT, MY BONES ARE CREAKING
I FORGOT TO PAY MY BILL

LATELY I'VE BEEN TRAPPED INSIDE THIS HOVEL
THE RADIO IS ON THE BLINK
THE SNOWPLOW'S PASSED ME BY, I'VE LOST MY SHOVEL
AND NOT A SINGLE THING TO DRINK

WOE WOE WOE IS ME, AND WHAT'S THE REASON
SANTA'S PASSED OUT IN THE PUB
SEEMS I REALLY MESSED THINGS UP THIS SEASON
CHRISTMAS SEEMS TO BE A FLUB
