        A 
         'Bah, humbug!'  No, that's too strong 
             A 
'Cause it is my favorite holiday 
   D 
But all this year's been a busy blur 
          C                B 
Don't think I have the energy 

   A 
To add to my already mad rush 
        A 
Just 'cause it 'tis the season. 
        D 
The perfect gift for me would be 
        C                   B 
Com     pletions and connections left from 

        A 
         Last year, ski shop, 
   A 
Encounter, most interesting. 
        D 
         Had his number but never the time 
        C                     B 
         Most of '81 passed along those lines. 

   A 
So deck those halls, trim those trees 
        A 
         Raise up cups of Christmas cheer, 
        D 
         I just need to catch my breath, 
        E                  A 
         Christmas by my self this year. 

        A       A       E       A

        A 
         Calendar picture, frozen landscape, 
        A 
         Chilled this room for twenty-four days, 
        D 
         Evergreens, sparkling snow 
        C                          B 
         Get this winter over with!       

                A 
Flashback to springtime, saw him again, 
        A 
         Would've been good to go for lunch, 
        D 
         Couldn't agree when we were both free. 
        C                  B 
We tried, we said we'd keep in touch. 

        A 
         Didn't, of course, 'til summertime, 
        A 
         Out to the beach to his boat could I join him? 
        D 
         No, this time it was me, 
        C                   B 
         Sunburn in the third degree. 

        A 
         Now the calendar's just one page 
            A 
And, of course, I am excited. 
  D 
Tonight's the night, I've set my mind 
        E                   A 
Not to do too much about it. 

        A       A       E       A

        A                     A 
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
        E                         A 
But I think I'll miss this one this year. 
        A                      A 
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
        E                          A 
But I think I'll miss this one this year. 
        A                      A 
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
        E                         A 
But I think I'll miss this one this year. 
        A                  A 
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
        E                      A 
But I think I'll miss this one this year. 

        A 
         Hardly dashing through the snow 
        A 
         'Cause I bundled up too tight. 
        D 
         Last minute, had to do 
        C              B 
A few cards, a few calls, 

                 A 
Because it's R. S. V. P. 
        A 
         No thanks, no party lights. 
         D 
It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax, 
        C                   B 
         Turned down all of my invites. 

        A 
Last fall I had a night to myself, 
        A 
         Same guy called, Halloween party, 
        D 
         Waited all night for him to show, 
        C                  B 
         This time his car wouldn't go. 

        A 
For     get it, it's cold, it's getting late, 
        A 
         Trudge on home to celebrate 
        D 
In a quiet way, unwind 
        E                A 
         Doing Christmas right this time. 

        A       A       E       A 
        A       A       E       A 

        A 
         A&P has provided me 
             A 
With the world's smallest turkey 
        D 
Already in the oven, nice and hot 
        C                   B 
Oh damn! Guess what I forgot? 

        A 
So on with the boots, back out in the snow 
        A 
To the only all-night grocery, 
        D 
When what to my wondering eyes should appear 
        C                                 B 
In the line is that guy I've been chasing all year! 

        A 
'I'm spending this one alone,' he said. 
            A 
'Need a break; this year's been crazy.' 
  D 
I said, 'Me too, but why are you? 
             C              B 
You mean you forgot cranberries too?' 

        A 
Then suddenly we laughed and laughed 
        A 
Caught on to what was happening 
        D 
That Christmas magic's brought this tale 
        E           A 
To a very happy ending! 

        A       A       E       A 
        A       A       E       A 

        D       D       G       G       D       D       Bm      A 
        D       D       G       G       D       D       Bm      A 
        D       D       G       G       D       D       Bm      A 
        D       D       G       G       D       D       G       Bm      E       Bm 

         A                 A 
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
        E                   A 
         Couldn't miss this one this year! 
        A                   A 
Merry Christmas!  Merry Christmas! 
        E                       A 
         Couldn't miss this one this year! 
        A                      A 
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
        E                       A 
         Couldn't miss this one this year! 
        A                       A 
Merry Christmas!  Merry Christmas! 
        E                       A 
         Couldn't miss this one this year!
