"I know this sounds silly, and I know that I might sound ridiculous…like this is the scene of the movie…where the guy is trying to get a hold of the long-lost son, y’know, but this is that scene. This is that scene. And I think they have those scenes in movies because they’re true. Y’know, because they really happen. And you gotta believe me, this is really happening. I mean, I can give you my number and you can go check with whoever you gotta check with and call me back. But do not leave me hanging on this. Please. I’m just — please. See…this is the scene of the movie where you help me out."
Suddenly it’s Christmas, right after Halloweeen. Forget about Thanksgiving; It’s just a buffet in between. There’s lights and tinsel in the windows; They’re stocking up the shelves; Santa’s slaving at the North Pole In his sweatshop full of elves.
There’s got to be a build-up To the day that Christ was born: The halls are decked with pumpkins And the ears of Indian corn. Dragging through the falling leaves In a one-horse open sleigh, Suddenly it’s Christmas, Seven weeks before the day.
CHORUS: Suddenly it’s Christmas, The longest holiday. When they say “Season’s Greetings” They mean just what they say: It’s a season, it’s a marathon, Retail eternity. It’s not over till it’s over And you throw away the tree.
Outside it’s positively balmy, In the air nary a nip; Suddenly it’s Christmas, Unbuttoned and unzipped. Yes, they’re working overtime, Santa’s little runts; Christmas comes but once a year And goes on for two months.
Christmas carols in December And November, too; It’s no wonder we’re depressed When the whole thing is through. Finally it’s January; Let’s sing “Auld Lang Syne”; But here comes another heartache, Shaped like a Valentine.
Suddenly it’s Christmas, The longest holiday. The season is upon us; A pox, it won’t go away. It’s a season, it’s a marathon, Retail eternity. It’s not over till it’s over And you throw away the tree.
No, it’s not over till it’s over And you throw away the tree; It’s still not over till it’s over And you throw away the tree.
