"Have We Bought Enough?"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

from the rock opera 'Holidasia.'
We've invited the relations
Even wayward Uncle Howard
This I am not looking toward
'Cause our life's not quite simple

In our household situation
We don't have much square footage
Plus there's certainly cash shortage
And our house ain't quite a temple

The bathroom's gotta be cleaned, and I will inspect
Gotta buy some hard liquor, oh the kitchen's a wreck
We need a food processor--get your hair cut, sweet
Put on your heavy coat, shovel up the street

Lord, where's my tree?
Lord, where's my tree?
Look...

Chaotic day of shopping
We have yet to do the cleaning
The money we were saving
Will all be used in celebrating
Let's hope there won't be slick roads
When Grandma Josie drives
Pray that this gath'ring is good
The best one of our lives

You bought gallons of eggnog
And fifty pounds of wrapping
You bought a plastic Yule log
You exclaim how much we're saving
Bought cookie tins and cake molds
A blender and ice trays
You bought a ream of ribbon
And 40 rolls of tape!

Got a budget? Try to keep it!
Eke out all your pennies countin'
Bring all yer family inside, must keep the old tradition!

Don't pout, because it's for THEM
Credit burst may haunt you
Wish a millionaire befriends you
Who'll help in this position

Lord, where's my tree?
Lord, where's my tree?
Look...

My father's gonna cut us a fat Christmas check
So don't comment about the hole in his neck
Get on your computer and e-mail Aunt Pete
That is another person that you and the kids should meet

You've bought enough of tinsel
You've bought enough of bows
You've bought enough of treelights
And poin-se-etta rows
I know this is your passion
Please forgive if I sound gruff
The thing I gotta mention
There's no more room for all this STUFF!!!!!

[sound effects: closet door opens and all of our Christmas supplies come tumbling down in a heap and a crash]

Ahhhh... Tis the season. This is a great project so far Agrimorfee, I promise that I'll eventually get that parody of 5:15 done, although if you want to take it back and turn it into something by all means you can, this is your project afterall and I don't want to intrude since it seems nobody else is intruding as well. Besides I already have a parody of 5:15 done, so go ahead and take it back. I want to see what you'll do with that song.

Matty: I did make something over the weekend...I was kindasorta waiting for you, but it's not a big deal. I was trying to cobble together some vestige of a storyline, and it would be better if "5:15" was not specifically about Christmas Eve as you had first proposed. Whatever you come up with is fine--if you do it, we'll call it the "Alternate Mix" or something. My "5:15" will come up shortly...Thanks!
