The Lyrics

When you're a kid, Christmas is awesome! But then you grow up...and you actually get stuff that you need instead of what you want. Original Song
All kids know of the fable
Santa brings you good stuff...
But all adults miss out on that life!

Waiting for that Christmas day
Creep down the steps, I want to open ‘em all!
Sure, I’m eighteen, but it’s still great!
My parents love me, I can’t wait much more!

I won’t read the card
Just tear up the wrapper...

I unwrap jumper cables...
I can’t help but yell, “What!?”
Placemats for dinner table
They’re not even that much fun
Instead got a new hairbrush
And a new scented candle tonight

I'm feeling down, it’s so not cool...
Christmas changes when you’re older, who knew?!

I got a gift card...
But it’s for a barber

I know I should be grateful
But it should be more fun...
Sure, I need an umbrella,
but, not on Christmas, come on!
Brand new socks are a must
But not ones covered in ducks
And some new flannel boxers tonight!

Winter chill brought a thrill
Santa brings toys Christmas Eve night
Now I’m pissed, I feel so gypped...
Don’t need a stapler or a tin to make muffins!

I’m still a kid
Not grown up yet
Want a new car, not alarm clocks!

[sighing and sobbing]

Another scented candle
Smells like cinnamon buns
Little bro got a football
That’s something that I would want...
But instead, it’s just dumb
Any fun gifts? I got none
Just a maker of labels tonight

Hate these dumb jumper cables
And these new flannel boxers
All these gifts so practical
Christmas: Not fun for ad-ults!

Just a tad out of season with me wanting to go to the beach instead of going caroling but this was a lot of fun. I was really hoping that you were going to go with that "I Wish I Was Criss Angel" tune but this one was a blast too and being an older brother I can relate to his plight. Also the security code is 9TH but you're 1ST in my book or at least 2ND 9TH is a little harsh.

The first chorus is missing a whole line, but maybe you can ask Santa for one in December, that is if he's still around, the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, northern Finland, is bleeding money and threatened with bankruptcy (due to diminished Russian tourism, due to the EU/Russian economic clonflict, due to the Russian war on Ukraine). Sorry for the rant, not much in the line of real feedback, but then again "Putin waging war on Christmas" holds a lot of future parody potential if things go down that road. BTW, security code is XXX, must be a MCILF joke in that somewhere...

Impractical indeed. These things can get in the way and yet people still use them as presents.

(Artistry) Oh hey, a Christmas parody when the weather's actually cold for me, I think that's a first! Anyway, great parody, though when the singer mentioned that he didn't read the card, I was expecting a twist where it turned out he opened the wrong presents but hey, not all parodies require twist endings, I guess. 555!

I practically feel your pain, since the 1990s or so! My favourite parts were the male vocalist sections.

A little early for Christmas, but I can dig it. This was really fun. I liked the things you listed, however some of them weren't that practical. muffin tins and Scented candles definitely aren't necessities in my apartment, lol! I think you could've had a little more fun if it was flipped and a positive thing. Like, as you get older you're excited about a new knife set, or a new shower curtain because you both want and need it to make your life better. Someone being excited to get a blender is way funnier to me than not liking it, but that's just my opinion. Still liked this bunches!
