The Lyrics

Always a nightmare, shopping for Christmas
I don't know why it's just so hard
I always seem to let down my loved ones
My lame gifts are breaking their hearts

Seems it's becoming a family tradition
Christmas is falling apart
Each crappy present needs a replacement
Time to get back in my car

Fixing mistakes isn't easy
Head hung in shame as I depart
Fixing mistakes isn't easy
Hoping that I know where the receipts are
As I head back to K-Mart

I was just guessing when I bought the skateboard
But my son wants a guitar
Daughter is crying, crying and angry
'Cause she doesn't like this toy car

And now my wife hates me, wants to divorce me
Over a gift so bizarre
What was I thinking, buying a painting
Of Saddam in a bra?

Fixing mistakes isn't easy
My head hung in shame as I depart
Fixing mistakes isn't easy
Hoping that I know where the receipts are
I'm going back to K-Mart

Saddam in a bra - too funny! By the way - It's snowing here in Seattle (which actually is somewhat rare). As I type, I'm looking at a winter wonderland of tall mountains and pine trees. Quite a change from last New Year's Eve, when we lived at the beach in Southern California! Have a Happy New Year, Aussie.
