Verse 4AA&P has its provided me With the world's smallest turkey AlDready in the oven, nice and hot Oh Gdamn! Guess what I forgot? So Aon with the boots back out in the snow To the only all-night grocery When Dwhat to my wondering eyes should appear In the Gline is that guy I've been chasing all year S "I'm spending this one alone," he said. "Need a break; this year's been crazy." I Dsaid, "Me too, but why are you? You mean Gyou forgot cranberries too?" Then Asuddenly we laughed and laughed Caught on to what was happening That DChristmas magic's brought this tale
Bm A--To a very happy ending
