Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The - X'mas Time (It Sure Doesn't Feel like It) Lyrics




It's the twentieth of December
A cold rain is fallin' down
Kenmore Square's deserted
The college kids have left town

[Chorus:]
Sure don't feel like Christmas time
Sure doesn't feel like Christmas time,
[x2]

To me

Down in Filene's Basement
Pretend I'm shoppin' for a friend
This time of year means nothing
You've got nothing you can spend

[Chorus:]
Sure don't feel like Christmas time
Sure doesn't feel like Christmas time
[x2]

It's the holiday season
And it's freezing cold
No one'll have me, I'll have no one to hold
I'll have no halls to deck, I've got nowhere to be
It sure doesn't feel like Christmas time to me

Now I'm standing in Downtown Crossing
And I've got nowhere to go
I might sleep here on the sidewalk
I'm tired and cold

The colored lights on the Common
They don't shine so bright for me
There's no such thing as peace on earth
There's no peace or harmony

[Chorus:]
Sure don't feel like Christmas time
Sure doesn't feel like Christmas time
[x2]

It's the holiday season
And it's freezing cold
No one'll have me, I'll have no one to hold
I'll have no halls to deck, I've got nowhere to be
It sure doesn't feel like Christmas time to me

  1. Van Die

    Harvard Square is a homeless camp , the methadone mile is overflowed , and even under the bridge closes down when the sun goes down ,. the bridge to the rehab is still closed and the combat zone isn't even open anymore

    Can't let a 20th of December go by without listening to this one!

    I was there once. It sucks. It gets better. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But it gets better.  Hold on. If to nothing else, hold on to yourself.

  4. The Beardiest

    Merry Christmas to all those who are having a hard year. I have, but I can't let go of the possibility that it will get better! Love all of you internet bastards!
