The Lyrics

I write my xmas parodies when there isn't so much competition
Ebenezer Scroogery
Understandable, his philosophy
The same over-hyped holiday ads, gonads, they got me

We all know, that two months every year they put on a show
After Halloween, they push the "fun"
We learn to spend, for every friend and brother
That's what we have been taught, the season is bought

Ebenezer Scroogery
Understandable, his anxiety
The same over-hyped holiday glitz, the pits, constantly

We all know, that suicides are highest from yuletide glow
People on the edge, just jump the ledge
The fears are built, from all the guilt your mother
Laid upon you as child, and now you're mis-filed

Ebenezer Scroogery
Understandable, his philosophy
The same over-hyped holiday ads, gonads, they got me

The lame over-hyped holiday ads, moms, dads, buy for me

Amen! Every one of these phony holidays is just an excuse to sell more useless crap. The Christmas that we know has only been around for about 75 years; it was invented by the Coka-Cola company! The worlds most successfull marketing scheme ever.

Yep, 5 worthy just for the ad/gonad couplet.

Spot on! I roll my eyes everytime I see another scrooge based advertisment. I can't believe people actually get paid to come up with that crap. Very good pacing with the original (btw,Tug of War is a highly under-rated McCartney album, at least over here in the US)

I agree with you Patrick. One of his four best solo albums (Along with Ram, Flowers in the Dirt, and Band on the Run)
Royce Miller - June 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Great title and I enjoyed it.

Flowers in the Dirt is good too. (Band on the Run, of coarse!)
