lyrics

everybody's running 'round now
makin' such a big fuss
getting ready for Christmas (ding dong ding dong)
kids are cryin' in the laps of fat men in red suits
a failing photo artist's loot shoot (cheese! cha-ching!)
"That's forty dollars please."
and I got paid the other day
but now I am flat broke
dropped it all on my kinfolk

this is what they're selling us this Christmas
I'm always fallin' for
the things they try to sell me every Christmas

I'm just another hipocrite
who always manages to get bit
by the holiday spirit (ding dong ding dong)
I've got to find a nice gift for my wife
'cause I love her
it takes a year just to recover (haaah haaah)
from all the shopping
so I vowed this time
that I would spend my dime
through the internet
I hope they don't forget to ship it

oh, this is what they're selling us this Christmas
I'm always fallin' for
the things they try to sell me every Christmas
this is what they're selling us this Christmas
I'm always fallin' for
the things they try to sell me every Christmas
whoa ho ho (ho)
whoa ho ho (ho ho)
ho
