Hip, hip, hip, hip, hip hooray!
You went and dumped me just before Christmas day
Even though we were just in seventh grade
I had an old enough heart to hear it break

How do you giftwrap a young boy's first broken heart?
And what would you write in the card?
And what if I found out that this would happen a thousand more times?
Would I even bother?

It wasn't the worst,
But it was the first time
And it set the trend
Of lonely winters that never end

I was caught off-guard when your phone call came
You gave me my gift earlier that day
And in the most poetic way
It broke my garbage pail when I threw it away

How do you giftwrap a young boy's first broken heart?
And what would you write in the card?
And what if I found out that this would happen a thousand more times?
Would I even bother?

It wasn't the worst,
But it was the first time
And it set the trend
Of frustrating relationships that badly end

Hip, hip, hip, hip, hip hooray!
You went and dumped me just before Christmas day
Even though we were just in seventh grade
I had an old enough heart to hear it break

Even though we were just in seventh grade
I had an old enough heart to hear it break

Even though we were just in seventh grade
I had an old enough heart to hear it break
