"Christmas Wrapping" as written by and Chris Butler....
Bah Hum, No that's too strong!
'Cause it's my favorite holiday
But all this years been a busy blur
Don't think I have the energy
To add to my already mad rush
Just because it is the season
The perfect gift for me would be
Completions and connections left from last year
World tour, aeroplanes and babies.
Met some guys but never the time
Most of 98 was along those lines.

So deck the halls and trim those trees
Raise up the cups of christmas cheer
I just need to catch my breath
Christmas with my mates this year

Calendar picture
Frozen landscape
Chill this room for twentyfour days
Evergreens, sparkling snow, get this winter over with
Flash back to spring time,
Sunny again
Would have been good to go for lunch
Couldn't agree when we were both free
We tried, we said we'd keep in touch,
We didn't of course till the summer time,
Out to the beach to his boat could have joined him
No this time, it was me, sunburn in the third degree
Now the calendars just one page
And of course I am excited
Tonights the night but I've set my mind
Not to do too much about it.

Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year

Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year

Hardly dashing through the snow
'Cause I bundled up too tight
Last minutes have-to-dos
A few cards, a few calls
Because it's are S V P
No thanks, no party lads
It's christmas eve, gonna relax
Turn down all of my invites
Last fall I had a night to myself
Some guy called halloween party
Waited all night for him to show
This time his car wouldn't go
Forget it, it's cold, it's getting late
Trudge on home to celebrate
In a quite way I unwind,
Doing christmas right this time

Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year

Tesco has provided me with the world's smallest turkey
All ready in the oven, nice and hot
Oh damn, guess what I forgot
So it's on with the boots back out in the snow
To the army all night garage but when to my wondering eyes should appear
In the line that guy I've been chasing all year
Spending this one alone he said
Give me a break this years been crazy
I said me too, but why are you...
You mean you forgot the papers too
Then suddenly we laughed and laughed
Caught on to what was happening
Christmas magic's brought this down to a very happy en-ending.

Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year

Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year

    Of course, Mel C never has time for boys. She is too much of a vagillionaire, I mean come on.

    General Commentat the end its "couldn't miss this one this year" in the waitresses one. i think its better than keeping it the same all throughout the songs, but then again i also think that the spice girls should be a weapon of psychological warfare.

    Song ComparisonWaitresses' version:
    "Had his number but never the time"
    This version:
    "Met some guys but never the time"

    Yet further references remain to _one_ guy.

    Waitresses' version:
    "Christmas by myself this year"
    This version:
    "Christmas with my mates this year"

    Yet further down, it's almost the same:
    "'I'm spending this one alone,' he said.
    'Need a break; this year's been crazy.'
    I said, 'Me too, but why are you? [...]'"

    If they're going to change the words, they ought to look through the new words properly to make sure they still make sense!
