about

We don't mean to be grouchy. But wouldn't the gift of less shopping stress this holiday be better than a new sweater or something?

lyrics

You ask me what I want for Christmas
What a thoughtful thing to do
Giving's such a lovely way to live
But I still have a plastic bag
That's all filled up with last year's swag
So how about we give the gift of
no more gifts to give - in fact:

Consider this song your Christmas present
Load it in, and then forget it
Play it anytime you wanna hear
Maybe it's not that much better
Than cotton socks or a tacky sweater
Still my words could not be more sincere
Please don't get me anything this year
Ooh oh oh

I don't want a thing for Christmas
No kitchen tools or fondue sets
Or toys that hug my inner child too. (No.)
But if the concept hurts your brain
Just donate something in my name
Or send me some new music like this
song I made for you

Consider this song your Christmas present
Copy, paste, and then forget it
Play it on December first each year
Or if you find you just don't need it
I won't mind if you delete it
If you change your mind I'll be right here
Please don't get me anything this year

Now I appreciate the thought
Some thoughts should just stay in your head
Why don't we take back what we bought
Call it even, say goodnight
and we'll all go back to bed

All year you give to someone else
But none of us are blessed with wealth
So take what you would spend on me
And give back to yourself

Consider this a lifetime present
To make your holidays more pleasant
The gift of one less gift to give away
Maybe we can go the distance
And formulate a gift resistance
Start a new tradition where nobody has to pay

This song is your Christmas present
Load it in, and then forget it
Play it anytime you wanna hear
Isn't this a little better
Than Santa socks or a reindeer sweater
Served up by an underpaid cashier
Please don't get me anything this year
Please don't get me anything this year
And next year
Every year.
