Edwards, Kathleen - It's Christmastime (Let's Just Survive) Lyrics




It's a wonderful time where we all descend
To my parents house in the west end
Uncle Dave and Susan bring their feral cat
And homemade wine that tastes like crap

Oh it's Christmastime
Let's just survive

Thanks for the self help book but, I have it already
I got it last year when I was dating that loser Jerry
And I get that you're lovin' the new John Mayer
But I don't even have a CD player

It's Christmastime
Let's just survive

Mom's criticizing Dad's mashed potatoes
But he's four martinis in so he doesn't notice
Someone let the dog lick the gravy bowl
And now the air in here is unbearable

Tell me a story we've all heard before
And drag it out even more

It's Christmastime
Let's just survive

Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow
Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow
Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow

You have a meltdown when we play Scrabble
It's not my fault, you're always left with vowels
Auntie' Sue goes on a really long walk
To buy weed from the swingers living down the block
And the cat pissed on the Christmas tree
And it soaks through the box of the iPad that you bought me
Is it too soon to ask
Did you get Apple Care with that

Tell me a story we've all heard before
And drag it out even more

It's Christmastime
Let's just survive
Oh it's Christmastime
Let's just survive

Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow
Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow
Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow

It's a wonderful time
Where we all descend
To my parents house in the west end

  12. Herrie ten Cate

    Well done!

  13. Cal Sparkes

    Sincere and cynical no doubt - and so true for some. But, cursing the darkness alone does not bring light. Adding some 'light' might help.

    You must have been listening to something else because your darkness comment makes no sense. Lighten up....meow. meow, meow, meow, meow, meow. 🥰
