  • The first thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Is finding a Christmas tree

    The second thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Rigging up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The third thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Hangovers
    Rigging up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The fourth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Sending Christmas cards
    Hangovers
    Rigging up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The fifth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Five months of bills
    Sending Christmas cards
    Hangovers
    Rigging up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The sixth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Facing my in-laws
    Five months of bills
    Oh, I hate those Christmas cards
    Hangovers
    Rigging up these lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The seventh thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    The Salvation Army
    Facing my in-laws
    Five months of bills
    Sending Christmas cards
    Oh, geez
    I'm tryin' to rig up these lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The eighth thing at Christmas that such a pain to me
    I want a Transformer for Christmas
    Charities, and whataya mean "YOUR in-laws"
    Five months of bills
    Oh, making out these cards
    Uh, Edith, get me a beer, huh?
    What, we have no extension cords??
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The ninth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Finding parking spaces
    Daddy, I want some candy
    Donations
    Facing my in-laws
    Five months of bills
    Writing out those Christmas cards
    Hangovers
    Now why the hell are they blinking???
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The tenth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Batteries not included
    No parking spaces
    Buy me somethin'
    Get a job, ya bum
    Oh, facing my in-laws
    Five months of bills
    Yo-ho, sending Christmas cards
    Oh, geez, look at this
    One light goes out, they ALL go out
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The eleventh thing of Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Stale TV specials
    "Batteries Not Included"?
    No parking spaces
    Dad, I gotta go ta bathroom
    Charities
    She's a witch, I hate her
    Five months of bills
    Oh, I don't even KNOW half these people
    Oh, who's got the toilet paper, huh?
    Get a flashlight, I blew a fuse
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The twelfth thing of Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Singing Christmas carols
    Stale TV specials
    "Batteries Not Included"?
    No parking??
    Waaa... waaaaaaaaaah
    Charities
    Gotta make 'em dinner
    Five months of bills
    I'm not sendin' them this year, that's it
    Shut up, you
    Fine you're so smart, you rig up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
