Jimi gave us rainbows,
And Janis took a piece of our hearts,
And Otis brought us all to the dock of a bay.
Sing a song to light my fire,
Remember Jim that way,
They've all found another place, another place to play.

Now here's the kids from Christmas Story, Annie and her orphans
So many child actors high on Red Bull and endorphins.
They barely come up to your knees, but God, they're singing like MVPs
And they're the reason this whole season seems to look like Chuck. E. Cheese and jeez it's bigger
That's right it's bigger
Is there a Tony daycare where all of you go?
You're getting bigger
Tonight it's bigger
So do your parents set aside your Broadway dough? (Heck, no!)
When I played Doogie...never mind, on with the show

The movie wasn't so hot
It didn't have much of a plot
We fell asleep
Our goose is cooked
Our reputation is shot

My boyfriend's back he's gonna save my reputation
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend's back)
If I were you I'd take a permanent vacation
(Hey-la, hey-la, my boyfriend's back)

A woman came up to me and said
"I'd like to poison your mind
With wrong ideas that appeal to you
Though I am not unkind"
She looked at me, I looked at something
Written across her scalp
And these are the words that it faintly said
As I tried to call for help:

Should you worry when the skull head is in front of you
Or is it worse because it's always waiting where your eyes don't go?

I met someone at the dog show.
She was holding my left arm.
But everyone was acting normal,
So I tried to look nonchalant.

You're saying, no no no I must be on my way
But it really has been a pleasant night
And you go so slow, hope they'll ask you to stay
And indifference gives you a fright

We'll just stay where we are
Then go back to the car
We don't want to be any worry

While riding in my Cadillac, what, to my surprise,
A little Nash Rambler was following me, about one-third my size.
The guy must have wanted it to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn. Beep! Beep!
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn.

Beep, beep. (Beep, beep.)
Beep, beep. (Beep, beep.)
His horn went, beep, beep, beep. (Beep! Beep!).

It's the little old lady from Pasadena
If you see her on the street don't try to choose her
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
You might drive a goer but you'll never lose her
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
Well, she's gonna get a ticket now sooner or later
'Cause she can't keep her foot off the accelerator

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and grandpa we believe

Over the river and through the woods
To grandmother's house we go
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
Through wide and drifting snow

Papa looks over at the small gathering
Remembering days gone by
Smiles at the children as he watches them play
And wishes his wife was still by his side
She would always cook dinner on Thanksgiving Day

Come on Carrie, carry me a little farther
Come on Carrie, carry me one more mile
I don't know where it's leading to
But I know I can make it if I lean on you
So come on Carrie, carry me a little
I carried you, now carry me a little
Come on Carrie, carry me a little while

Wake me up

Softly
Gently drift down

Snowflakes
Whisper

(I got to get home) But, baby, you'd freeze out there
(Say lend me a coat) It's up to your knees out there
(You've really been grand) I thrill when you touch my hand
(But don't you see) How can you do this thing to me

I cannot remember a worse December
Just watch those icicles form
What do I care if icicles form
I've got my love to keep me warm

Little daughter of mine, I can't for the life of me
Remember a sadder day, I know they say let it be

If we make it through December
Everything's gonna be all right, I know
It's the coldest time of winter
And I shiver when I see the falling snow

But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step

I'd like to sing about all the things

So hop aboard the turntable
Oh step into Christmas with me

Are we demented or am I disturbed?
The space that's in between insane and insecure
Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?

My analyst told me that I was right out of my head
The way he described it, he said I'd be better dead than alive

Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to leave because I'd go berserk?
Well, you left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see I've gone completely out of my mind
And, they're coming to take me away, ha, ha
They're coming to take me away, ho, ho, hee, hee, ha, ha
To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away, ha, ha

The night Santa went crazy
The night St. Nick went insane
Realized he'd been gettin' the raw deal
Something finally must have snapped in his brain

I said, "Has it occurred to you, you nerd
That that's not very nice
We Jews believe it was Santa Claus that killed Jesus Christ"
"You know, you don't look Jewish," he said
"Near as I could figger
I had you stamped for a slightly anemic
Well-dressed country Nigga."
