Lyrics

I always get emotional at Christmas time
That heavenly time of year.
Whether I'm home with friends
Or out there bustin' heads,
I'm blinkin' back a sad or happy tear.
On February, I start seein' red and green
Brass knuckles tied up in bows.
It's like a herd of tiny reindeer
Is prancin' 'round my heart,
And I become the me that nobody knows.

I laugh. I cry.
I totally lose my cool.
Oh, me! Oh, my!
I'm a Yuletide fool!
This eggnog is so creamy (mmm)
It oughta be a crime.
I always get emotional at Christmas time.

Tell old Saint Nicky
I'm feelin' awful icky
About the naughty stuff I did (I'm so ashamed!)
After a beatin',
I'll find myself repeatin',
"Say 'Hi' to the wife and kid...
Don't forget."

I always get emotional at Christmas time
Undoing so much good cheer.
Whether I'm poisoning punch
Or setting dolls on fire,
I try to fill the world with grief and fear.
What fun to send each family a big surprise
As gruesome as it can be.
I might invest the boughs of holly
With bugs from outer space
Or slide the local toy store into the sea.

I laugh. I cry.
I totally lose my cool.
Oh, me! Oh, my!
I'm a Yuletide fool!
To give the gift of chaos
What thrill is more sublime?
I always get emotional at Christmas time.

This year I'm taking
More time to do my baking.
You're always short and bonkin', ain't it true?
(Whoa!)
Carefully choosing
(Whoa!)
My card gets so confusing.
I like the cats with Santa hats. Don't you?

I laugh. I cry.
I totally lose my cool.
Oh, me! Oh, my!
I'm a Yuletide fool!

When fruitcake goes on sale, I'm spending every dime.

It's time to pass out candy canes I've dipped in slime.

So call me sentimental. It's a fact that I'm...

A fool for trees with flocking.

En route to steal your stocking.

I always get emotional at Christmas time!
