Christmas Break

The lights are on the tree
Lately I've been thinking
Maybe it's just me
Or maybe it's the drinking.

The most wonderful time of the year
They say Santa's on his way
But maybe you and I
Should finally face the music here today


Merry Christmas, let's break up
I think you've had enough of me
Let's do what we should have done before
Take our gifts from under the tree
Bring them back to the store
We won't have to see each other anymore.


I know tonight you're gonna make that eggnog
I'm gonna miss it that's for sure
But listening to your caroling
Is something I cannot endure

I'm sick of hearing the same stories
I'm dreaming of a silent night
It'll be a joyous holiday
If we're not in each others sight


Merry Christmas, let's break up
I think you've had enough of this
We'll avoid the mistletoe
I'm sure there's much we'll miss
But it's a blessing not a blow
We both know it's time to go


I know you're afraid of starting over
So am I. So am I.
So just see it this way
A new year, a new guy


I know tonight you go to see your family
I was thinking I'd come with you still
Well I thought you could use the company
And I'd like to see your cousin Jill.


Merry Christmas, let's break up
I think you've had enough of me
Let's do what we should have done before
Take our gifts from under the tree
Bring them back to the store
We won't have to see each other anymore.

Merry Christmas, let's break up
Merry Christmas, let's break up
I'm sure there's much we'll miss
It's a blessing not a blow
We both know it's time to go
