From the moment I hear Mathis until the night they drop the ball
I carry this weight with me like a coat I can't take off
And this attitude like eggnog that sat out 'til mid July
Must be the reason I'm trolling Macy's trying to make Santa cry

Like my friend Jake feels on Christmas when almost everything is closed
Like that reindeer must have felt before he learned why he had that nose

Despite the way I feel tonight
There's no time for being blue
Because despite the way I feel tonight
Though my tone takes a colder hue
There's no time for being blue
We've got diggin' out to do

They call it daylight savings but do they calculate the cost
I'm taking milligrams in thousands from all this vitamin D loss
And I'm union suits and whiskey, making dust, holed up in bed
For fear I'll run into several exes with parents that wish that I was dead

Like my friend Jake feels on Christmas when almost everything is closed
Like that reindeer must have felt before he learned why he had that nose

Despite the way I feel tonight
There's no time for being blue
Because despite the way I feel tonight
Though my tone takes a colder hue
There's no time for being blue
We've got diggin' out to do

We've got diggin' out to do
We've got diggin' out to do
