The Lyrics

I was going to submit this last week . . . sorry.
You will never know about which day it comes,
But you're watching for it, anyway.
And I wonder if you really know somehow,
I'm just buying your Christmas card today.

Procrastination, Procrastination
Is making me late.
It's keeping you waiting.

Should I tell you how sorry I feel at this moment.
Maybe I should wait 'til around three.
But I rehearsed excuses late last week,
Now I am thinking maybe I could tell you Friday.

Procrastination, Procrastination
Makes me hesitate.
You're anticipating.

But then, perhaps you'll think I'm apathetic.
Don't care 'bout it, 'cause I'm just not that way.
I'll come by to give you your Christmas card now.
Just stay right there, 'cause I'll be a couple days.

I'll be a couple days.
I'll be a couple days.
Your card is on its way.
Maybe sometime in May.

Ah, yes, the original "Ketchup Song." Sorry it took me so long to vote and comment. Hmmmm, "Heinz Field," that may explain why the Steelers have looked so slow lately.
