Well, there's a twenty-pound turkey in the oven
And there's a big old log upon the fire
Mama's a-runnin' 'round in her new frilly gown
Daddy's dressed in Santa Claus attire.
All the kids hang stockings near the chimney
And in the livin' room there stands an old Spruce tree
What causes this family's strange behavior
I guess it's just that time of year, you see.
We all get crazy at Christmas
Gather around and sing those yuletide songs
Yea!, we all get crazy at Christmas
Lord, I wish we could stay crazy all year long.
Well, it's enough to make old Scrooge say "Season Greetings"
And it's enough to make the rich folks help the poor
Char-i-ty abounds - when that feelin' comes around
Why don't it come around some more.
I want to thank Baby Jesus
Born in a manger long ago
'Cause on His birthday wars stop fighting for awhile
And it's the closest thing we have to peace on earth.
Why don't we stay crazy all year long.
