The Lyrics

Song #10 of "The 12 Parodies of Christmas".
You see the tree, you cannot breathe
You know that gifts are underneath
You circle round and check them out
'Cause this is what it's all about

You count the tags that have your name
And then you count them once again
You wanna know what's in those gifts
Before you reach the 25th

You like to say that you're above all of this
But then you dig under the tree doing the scratch n sniff
You know you're gonna have to face it you're addicted to gifts

Ev-er-y day, you look to see
If there is more under the tree
And if you spot something new
You've gotta know if it's for you

You've got some tricks that you can use
To get the wrapping loose
Your conscience says to back away
You've gotta wait for Christmas day

You like to say that you're above all of this
But then you dig under the tree doing the scratch n sniff
You know you're gonna have to face it you're addicted to gifts

Might as well face it you're addicted to gifts
No you can't fake it you're addicted to gifts
Every move shows that you're addicted to gifts
Everyone knows that you're addicted to gifts
Need a vaccine for your addiction to gifts

You tell yourself enough's enough
It's time that you start to grow up
You'll just calm down and be sincere
And keep hands off UNTIL NEXT YEAR

You like to say that you're above all of this
But then you're underneath the tree doing the scratch n sniff
You know you're gonna have to face it you're addicted to gifts

Might as well face it you're addicted to gifts
Need to put brakes on your addiction to gifts
Searching the house "cause you're addicted to gifts
Sneak like a mouse "cause you're addicted to gifts
Need to get over your addiction to gifts
