Minogue, Kylie - Christmas Wrapping Lyrics

Bah Hum.. but that's too strong!
Cause it is my favorite holiday
But all this years been a busy blur
Don't think i have the energy
To add to my already mad rush
Just cause 'tis the season
The perfect gift for me would be
Completions and connections left
From last year, ski shopping, counter most interesting
Had his number but never the time
(Most of '81 past along those lines)
So deck those halls and trim those trees
Raise up cups of Christmas cheer
I just need to catch my breath
Christmas by myself this year

Calendar picture, frozen landscape
Chill this room for twenty-four days
Evergreens, sparkling snow, get this winter over with
Flash back, to spring time, sun again (why?)
Would have been good to go for lunch
Couldn't agree when we were both free
We tried, we said we'd keep in touch
Didn't of course till summer time
Out to the beach to his boat could have joined him
No this time, it was me, sunburn in the third degree
Now the calendars just one page
Of course I am excited
Tonights the night but I've set my mind
Not to do too much about it
(Christmas is over)
Oh, no you don't

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year

Hardly dashing through the snow
Cause I bundled up too tight
Last minute have-to-do's
A few cards a few calls
Cause it's r-s-v-p
No thanks, no party lights
It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax
Turned down all of my invites
Last fall I had a night to myself
Same guy called, halloween party
Waited all night for him to show
This time his car wouldn't go, (I'm sorry)
Forget it, it's cold, it's getting late
Trudge on home to celebrate
In a quiet way, unwind
Doing Christmas right this time

A&P has provided me with the world's smallest turkey
All ready in the oven, nice and hot
Oh damn, guess what I forgot?
So on with the boots back out in the snow
To the only all night grocery
When what to my wondering eyes should appear?
In the line is that guy
I've been chasing all year
(I'm spending this one alone) he said
(Need a break this year's been crazy)
I said me too, but why are you..?
You mean you forgot cranberries too?
Then suddenly we laughed and laughed
Caught on to what was happening
That Christmas magic's brought this tale to a very happy ending

Merry Christmas, honey
(Merry Christmas baby)

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Couldn't miss this one this year
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Couldn't miss this one this year

Minogue, Kylie Christmas Wrapping Comments
  1. zaius doberman

    "Happy" mega popstars covering this (apparently?)without a clue. Royalties from Ohio to Royal Albert Hall. Oh the irony. I'm typing this after skipping thru and giving up around 1:46. I wonder how far CHRIS BUTLER gets.

  2. beng1lh00ly

    this is brilliant - she sings it very well and in the spirit of the original! plus she's god damn gorgeous!

  3. Tracy Mohr

    Lord, this is painful.

  4. frank rizzo

    Sounds like she sucked on a helium balloon

  5. Frazer Love

    Jeez thats painful to listen to. Cant hold a christmas candle to the original .
    Have to say the version by Save Ferris is the best cover of this song pretty sure they played it at KROQ almost acoustic christmas many years ago , Another great band from Orange County !
    Ok Im biased Im in the OC .

  6. Jillian Holmes

    Girl can’t carry a tune. Sorry.

  7. pblackburn13

    Would love to hear Bananarama cover this.

  8. Michael Brannon

    Way to wreck the Waitresses!! Horrible

  9. steve wilson

    Sounds like she’s sniffing helium

  10. Cupid Stunt

    Pure Gorgeous positive energi !!😘🥰🤩

  11. Philip Kearney

    This song is literally impossible to remember

  12. Hammy Technoid

    The sound in that auditorium must have been epic.... we're hearing what the mics pick up, but the live experience is where it's at!

  13. Ben Yeomans

    Those legs!!! Merry Christmas, enjoy lads.

  14. Jackie smith

    Wow this is one for he best performances I have ever seen ever. Wow.

    Wesley Buirkle

    Wow you don't get out much

  15. lovinmytunes05

    I love her so much. Such a sweet person

  16. Sergeant Metalhead

    This sucks if she was a fat chick no one would give it a second thought

  17. Chico Silverhill

    A for effort. C- cause she kinda pulled it off

  18. Eugene Malush

    Not good at all. Yuck.

  19. FateFallenShort

    I LOVE this! Everyone who is criticizing (in a not very nice way) - RELAX. No one is trying to "replace" the original version - every song gets re-released many times to varying levels of success, and this is just FUN. Please have a seat.

  20. AnonymousEnt01

    🙅🏽‍♂️🙅🏽‍♂️🙅🏽‍♂️🙅🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️.... just ruined The Waitresses song

  21. Raul Gutierrez-Solis

    Stupid ass people saying the original one is better. Shut up and enjoy the music.

  22. Vincent Harris

    The older dude at 0:23 was feeling it, probably remembered the original.Great reaction!

  23. scott newman

    Is she on helium?

  24. Randy

    Tough to match the original.... the horns are awesome!

  25. Joel Castaneda

    The waitresses version was better, but not as sexy

  26. Erik Aviles

    Kylie Minogue is STILL bangin.

    adam martin

    There was a time when she wasn't????

    Erik Aviles

    adam martin there was never a time that she wasn’t, my good man.

  27. jjmurff

    Kylie SQUEEKER, doesn't even come close! ( She would make a Great Betty BooP)

  28. Aquilaria's Dream

    Well at least she tried, but she should've hired a Mariachi band fir the brass!

  29. Alex James

    Omg one line in and stopped watching.. Ugh.. Patty rip... No one touches this classic and No one should

  30. Craig Halihan

    This is fantastic, the band is outstanding

    la willi

    Uummmm no not really, Nice effort from her BUT the waitresses did it better as they're the originals!! Anyway Kylie was just "singing" the song there's no feeling in it in the way she's singing it etc.

  31. michael naretto

    Cute legs...

  32. SevenDaysToNoon

    You cannot beat the Waitresses! Don’t even go there!

    Ken McD

    Without a doubt. Everything else is crap.

    henry riley

    She’s not even trying to tho. It’s just a cover

  33. clarsen714

    Who the eff pays this chick to sing? Way to destroy a song. Music? - awesome. Her singing? Atrocious.

    the womble

    Always been a steaming pile of wank.

  34. Chicken boy


  35. Job Vilchez

    The original is much better.

  36. tregoboing

    I don't like her voice but I can't deny she has great stage presence, I can see why our Friends of Dorothy love her so much.

  37. rick oddon

    hack job! RIP Patty


    Kylie is still as gorgeous today as she was when
    I Should Be So Luck was released.

  39. derek burgess

    There I am at 4 seconds in. Was a great show

  40. Mr. W

    0:04 can’t tell if pervy sausage fest or strong gay fan base.

    Ken Morris

    the answer is, of course, yes.

  41. Stephen Mooney

    Patty be turning over in her grave

  42. Jorgen Malmgren


    You are 100% free to imagine how this can give your inner child an experience you never would believe was possible. Please share with those of your family and friends that's missing their inner child.




  43. brock Lee

    Patty the one and only!!!

  44. Michael Snell

    Oh dear...

  45. jadoresephora roi

    gorgeous legs!!!!!

  46. roro1980

    Great cover but the original is the best

  47. Danyiel Says

    I love that Kylie covered this song!!! My goddess of pop!!

  48. Killa

    Her voice is to high pitch for this

  49. John

    WOW! @ 0:55 she moonwalks WAY better than Michael Jackson!

    Pete Kondolios

    Its those beautiful legs

  50. Michael Dixon

    Iggy Pop literally sounds like a dirty old man on this song. Kylie, you can do MUCH better! :P haha

  51. Michael Morgan

    One of the great Christmas songs! Epic bass line, instrumental bridge, great chorus. Kylie is a cute cheerleader who has singing talent comparable to Paula Abdul. The original version of this song is a time capsule and the best cover version is yet to be made. Merry Christmas!

  52. william shulman

    This is worse than terrible

  53. michael maujer

    It was good when The Waitresses did it first.

  54. Ryan Lavine

    ... ... .. Damn...

  55. Vanessa

    mmmmmmsorry cant focus on anything other than her perfect legs..

    michael naretto

    Her legs are killer for sure...

  56. LtEdPell

    Which elevator am I on?

  57. Noah Partic

    While Kylie can never...eeeeeeever, replace Patty Donahue, she was XMas kickass in this 1.

  58. Steve Brown

    Drinking ney binge drinking from the fountain of youth

  59. rob w.

    FAB! the One and Only Kylie!

  60. Mike Jones

    Wish iggy pop would have come out.

  61. Robert H

    Ok job, but she doesn't replace the original.

  62. Burrell Hill

    My bowels evacuated, yuck!

  63. Rust n Roll

    how do you not love those legs.....

  64. The Truth

    Miny Mouse version of the waitresses. rip off

  65. sooz hart

    Gr8 band behind her-Horns & that Bass👍🏻👌🏼🤟🏼No female comments tho? Now I see why so many thumbs up...to be honest~ obvi, I’m swimming up the stream on this comment river but, I think her voice tamber is thin and whiny on this & actually on everything-just don’t like her voice. My opinion, I also think this is,overall, out of her age group-the costume -how kitschy she is with it..would have rather seen her in a nice sparkly gown singing Have yourself a merry little Christmas~
    (Beautiful legs tho) 🤷🏻‍♀️



  66. SirChristopherGorton

    I love her dress

  67. Andrew T

    I would drink a tub of her bath water!

    craig Telford

    Suck the farts outta her arse ?

  68. karatebuff

    Just seen the original of this and I've got to say Kylie does what she always does best takes a classic and makes it even better!!

  69. Alan Fox

    ii saw this on sky arts Saturday night nice to see a snippet of the concert again.

  70. John

    She did a good job on this! Kept in the spirit of the original.

  71. derek burgess

    What an amazing night this was & I am in the crowd scene at the beginning

  72. Nick Berry

    She taken this classic song and managed to improve it - the album version is superb.

    Max Hartzenberg

    no way. lacks the attitude of the original..

  73. Ghostbusters3

    Kylie is amazing

  74. Ahri Arcade
