    Intro: / C - - / x4

           / C - - / x8 (w/Main Melody)

     

         C         F             G            C

    The season's upon us, it's that time of year

    C          F                 G         C

    Brandy and eggnog, there's plenty of cheer

             C              F                 G            C

    There's lights on the trees and there's wreaths to be hung

             C            F          G           C

    There's mischief and mayhem and songs to be sung

     

             C                 F          G             C

    There's bells and there's holly, the kids are gung-ho

          C            F            G           C

    True love finds a kiss beneath fresh mistletoe

          C            F              G           C

    Some families are messed up while others are fine

             F (hold 2)     G (hold 2)                     

    If you think yours is crazy   well you should see mine

     

    Interlude:

    / C - - / F - - / G - - / C - - / x4 (w/Main Melody x2)

     

        C           F           G          C

    My sisters are wackjobs, I wish I had none

           C            F          G            C

    Their husbands are losers and so are their sons

        C          F        G            C

    My nephew's a horrible wise little twit

             C         F                 G            C

    He once gave me a nice gift wrapped box full of shit

     

        C             F            G        C

    He likes to pelt carolers with icy snowballs

                 C            F             G             C

    I'd like to take him out back and deck more than the halls

          C            F           G          C

    With family like this I would have to confess

            C          F           G             C

    I'd be better off lonely, distraught and depressed

     

    Chorus (in 6/8):

         F                       C

    The season's upon us, it's that time of year

    G                            C

    Brandy and eggnog, there's plenty of cheer

             F                                C

    There's lights on the trees and there's wreaths to be hung

             G (2)

    There's mischief and mayhem and songs to be sung

    F (hold)             G (hold)               

       They call this Christmas where I'm from

        C            F             G            C

    My mom likes to cook push our buttons and prod

         C            F            G           C

    My brother just brought home another big broad

        C              F            G             C

    The eyes rollin’ whispers come loud from the kitchen

         C             F               G          C

    I'd come home more often if they'd only quit bitchin'

     

    C          F               G           C

    Dad on the other hand's a selfish old sod

             C       F            G         C

    Drinks whiskey alone with my miserable dog

         C             F             G             C

    Who won't run off fetch sure he couldn't care less

          C        F              G           C

    He defiled my teddy bear and left me the mess

         F                     C

    I'm so glad this day only comes once a year
