The Girl With the Holiday Smile

Album: Release Me (2012)
  • I met a hooker at the grocery store
    She wasn't bad lookin', she was a pretty little whore
    Whoa-o-whoa, she's the girl with the holiday smile

    She told me: "Merry Christmas and peace to you"
    She said "I've been workin' this whole night through."
    She said "Whoa-o-whoa, I'm the girl with the holiday smile"

    She told me "Whoa my whoa me, I look so good beneath a Christmas tree"
    She said "Whoa-o-whoa, I'm the girl with the holiday smile"

    She told me "Christmas brings out the best in me"
    She said "My heart's so full of love and generosity"
    "Whoa-o-whoa, I'm the girl with the holiday smile"

    And "Well the police here and the police there
    "They ruin my Christmas spirit everywhere I go."
    "Whoa-o-whoa, I'm the girl with the holiday smile"

    She told me "Whoa my whoa me, I look so good beneath a Christmas tree"
    She said "Whoa-o-whoa, I'm the girl with the holiday smile"

    Well she told me "goodbye" as she walked away
    She said "Son, if you're good maybe on Christmas day"
    Whoa-o-whoa

    I said "Whoa my whoa me, she looks so good beneath my Christmas tree"
    Whoa-o-whoa, she's the girl with the holiday

    I met a hooker at the grocery store
    She wasn't bad lookin', she was a pretty little whore
    Whoa-o-whoa, she's the girl with the holiday
    Well lord lord, she's the girl with the holiday
    Whoa-o-whoa, she's the girl with the holiday

    Silent night shining so bright
    She ain't holy but she can hold me tight

    Whoa-o-whoa, she's the girl with the holiday Writer/s: LYLE PEARCE LOVETT
