You can take all the bells, take all the jing-a-ling

Since ol’ what’s his name it doesn’t really mean a thing

I’m gonna cap off the chimney, board up the windows in my home

‘Cause this Christmas I’d rather be alone


We used decorate the tree and gain few pounds eating cookie dough

Then work it all off sharing kisses under mistletoe

Take the kids to your parents tell ‘em Dad will call ‘em on the phone

‘Cause this Christmas I’d rather be alone


Send me no presents baby that’s alright

If you like him better baby that’s alright

I’ll just use this time to stare at the walls

And toast to you while he decks your halls


You won’t find twinkling lights or a candy cane on my door

If you’re singing Christmas carols better keep the hell of my porch

I’ll be knocking back Coronas and listening to the Rolling Stones

This Christmas I’d rather be alone


You can roast his chestnuts all night in the white white snow

This Christmas I’d rather be alone
