"I Won't Be Home for Christmas" as written by and Scott/hoppus Raynor....
Outside the carolers start to sing
I can't descibe the joy they bring
'Cause joy is something they don't bring me

My girlfriend is by my side
From the roof are hanging sickles of ice
Their whiny voices get irritating
It's Christmas time again

So I stand with a dead smile on my face
Wondering how much of my time they'll waste
Oh God, I hate these Satan's helpers

And then I guess I must have snapped
Because I grabbed the baseball bat
And made them all run for shelter

It's Christmas time again
It's time to be nice to the people you can't stand
All year
I'm growing tired of all this Christmas cheer
You people scare me
Please stay away from my home
If you don't wanna get beat down
Just leave the presents and then leave me alone

Well, I guess it's not cool to freak on Christmas Eve
'Cause the cops came and arrested me
They had an unfair advantage
And even though the jail didn't have a tree
Christmas came a night early
'Cause a guy named bubba unwrapped my package

It's Christmas time again
It's time to be nice to the people you can't stand
All year
I'm growing tired of all this Christmas cheer
You people scare me
Please stay away from my home
If you don't wanna get beat down
Just leave the presents and then leave me alone

I won't be home, I won't be home for Christmas
I won't be home, I won't be home for Christmas

    General CommentThis song is really good I think. It was so good to me that I had to by the single. The single was pretty good. I think that this song is really well written with a funny story along with it. I love Blink 182 so much that I saw them in concert 5 times already. I hope that they come to the Allentown fare again this year! Is it just me or does it seem like there's some lyrics missing form these? I'm not sure but I believe so! I love Blink 182! HeHe!:)

    General CommentI think this song is hilarious! "You people scare me, please stay away from my home", is exactly how I feel about my relatives at Christmas. The Bubba thing is great too, reminds me of my 8th grade science teacher "keep your soap on a rope". Hehe
