Humbug

Bought a Christmas card — I won’t be bringing

Got the gifts in bows – but left ‘em behind

Heard a Christmas song I won’t be singing

Make your mistletoe moments

Get out of my mind

Brought a brand new sled – I won’t be keeping

Got a deal on toys I won’t enjoy

Have a halo head-ache that had me weeping

Take your holiday hoop-la

Oh, have it destroyed

I’m having bah-humbug for breakfast

Boo-hoo .for my meal at noon

By dinner time this Christmas

I’ll be howling at the moon

I’ll have some dag-nab-it tomorrow

Drats and rats in a week or two

I’d like to sink my teeth

Into a holly wreath

And spit it down the flu

Bought a best selling book – I won’t be reading

Got a great new game– I don’t want to play

Not a single bell — will I be jingling

As for carolers singing

Just shoo them away

Caught a candy cane cold – that has me sneezing

Got a doctor’s advice — I didn’t obey

Nose as stuffed as stockings — from chimney squeezing

My clothes are all sooty

Hip-hip hip-hooray

I’m having bah-humbug for breakfast

Boo-hoo .for my meal at noon

By dinner time this Christmas

I’ll b e howling at the moon

I’ll have some dag-nab-it tomorrow

Drats and rats in a week or two

By then the trees and lights

And reindeer flights

Will finally be through

Whatever therapy you may think I need

You can put it on yourself

In the newspaper some day you’ll read

About a dead grumpy old elf.
