  • Lyrics: I hate the holidays The most wonderful time of year All that jingle belling Is like yelling in my ear Over the Hudson River, through the wood To a traffic jam in Grandma’s neighborhood That isn’t where I want to be I hate the holidays Festive commercials on TV Make me want to cringe Is there something wrong with me? Stimulating the economy Doesn’t feel so warm and fuzzy Is that the way it’s got to be? I hate the holidays Obligatory present for my boss I’d better get a raise So I can afford cranberry sauce I know they’ll be singing “Auld Lang Syne” By the time I get out of this checkout line That isn’t how it’s meant to be I must admit I like to bake cookies And decorated streets make me happy But all the shoppers drive me crazy And I want to commit homicide on 5th Avenue I hate the holidays More and more with each passing year And in so many ways I resent that I’m forced to muster cheer Keep your menorah and your Christmas tree I’m happily tradition-free While they’re carving up a big turkey We’re holding hands and strolling through Chelsea Our kind of celebrating’s quite inspired Eating BLTs at The Empire Diner There’s no other place I’d rather be I hate the holidays But I love spending them with you You know I love spending them with you
