Christmas comes just once a year (I got a baby doll)
With all its yuletide joy and cheer (I got a football)
But there's one thing I'd like to say...
Is that I hate Christmas day (I got a rock!)

It's time for everybody to have a Christmas party
Everyone but me I'll step outside boycott your office party
No secret Santa for me
Mistletoe makes me sneeze anyway

Cuz I don't wanna go, where happy days are snow
I'd rather stay where Frosty melts in the sun
July 4 parade
A Lynchburg lemonade
An alcohol a day by the pool in the sun (Now everybody sing)

Chorus
Deck the halls with bells of holly
'Tis the season to be jolly but,
I hate Christmas I'm glad it only comes one time a year

Its time for everybody to head out Christmas shopping
Everyone but me I'll stay inside
No presents under your tree that have a nametag for me
And it makes my gifts so easy to hide I don't wanna go where shopping lines are slow
I rather stay at home with the frosty cold one
A bud on ice in may, a lazy summer day
An alcohol a day by the pool in the sun (Now everybody sing)

Chorus
Deck the halls with bells of holly
'Tis the season to be jolly but,
I hate Christmas I'm glad it only comes one time a year

It was the night before Christmas and all through the house
All the creatures was chillin like Flint drinkin stout
I woke from my sleep, heard 'here comes the boom'
I knew that Santa would be comin' soon
On Dascher on Donner, Commit, on Blitzen
I yelled 'shut up ya'll,' but they wouldn't listen
And then he came down with his belly of jello
He says "where the ladies at cuz I'm a real jolly fellow"
Then he gave me a wink and was quick out of sight
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a super deeky duper fly night

Chorus
Deck the halls with bells of holly
'Tis the season to be jolly but,
I hate Christmas I'm glad it only comes one time a year

Chorus
Deck the halls with bells of holly
'Tis the season to be jolly but,
I hate Christmas I'm glad it only comes one time a year

Cuz I hate Christmas, I'm glad it only comes one time a year

Cuz I hate Christmas, I'm glad it only comes one time a year

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
