The Lyrics

If you saw the "Life In Hell" comic strip the other day, you may have seen the word "Stressmas" used. I swear I thought of it first.
Christmas stress is here,
Bouncing checks won't clear,
Overspending without end,
A frenzied time of year...

Tearing out my hair,
Not much left up there,
Bank accounts are shrinking down,
There's nothing left to spare...

Cell phones everywhere
Yuppies yakking there:
"No, it's not the color that
I thought would match the chair...."

Stressmas! Christ! It's here!
Chug another beer....
Charge it all, and sign install-
Ment plans for years and years.....


Christmas stress is here,
Crappy gifts I fear:
Stockings filled with Christmas bills
And fruitcake from Aunt Claire

Ties I'll never wear,
Books by Tony Blair
Volume Three of Bush's gaffes
And see-through underwear

Turning off my brain,
Eggnog numbs the pain,
I'll be buying lots of stuff
That they'll return again

When will this stress end?
Doesn't feel too Zen....
Maybe I should give my wife
A gag gift of Depends....
ęBob Gomez 2003 Rick Duncan and Johnny D: thanks for the ideas, and a very happy holiday to you and yours.

Exactly what Charlie Brown experiences every Christmas. Very Funny.

Thanks, folks. One completely worthless visit to Target was all it took to write this song. I guess it was worth it after all. d;:^)

The thing I hate about Christmas is that it has become to commercial. Plus I didn't get what I wanted!! lol. Great parody, Bob, and oh so true! 555

Well, you don't see this one parodied every day, do ya? Nice work, Bob. So, here it is, December 27th, and the stress level has finally subsided to the point where I'm actually ready to enjoy Christmas. It's peaceful where I am. Very Christmassy. In fact, the nice, white padded walls remind me of banks of new fallen snow. And I just can't help but wonder, "Where DO the ducks at the pond in Central Park go in the winter?".

Isn't that post-Christmas cheer great? But what happened to the Great Pumpkin? And happy new year, Holden!
