"Everything for Christmas" as written by Berry Gordy Jr and Teddy Randazzo....
And outside it looks like snow, yeah.
Got some logs to make a fire,
Caviar and Cordon Bleu.
And the stereo is filled with yuletide carols old and new.

The stockings are hung with care,
Two together, two together, two together.
The presents are here, everywhere,
The presents are here, everywhere, yeah,
And a box of chocolate cherries,
And a magnum of Champagne.

Hey, girl, hey, girl,
Can't think of anything that I didn't do.
Hey, honey, hey, honey,
Can't think of anything that I didn't do.
Hey, baby, hey, baby,
Even got the table set up for two,
Even got the table set up for two,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Even got the table set up for two,
I've got everything for Christmas,
I've got everything for Christmas,
I've got everything for Christmas,
But, baby...

The tree is trimmed up just right,
The tree is trimmed up just right,
Woo, hoo, ooh,
With sparkles and flashing lights,
Flashing, flashing, flashing, flashing,
Yeah, lights, yeah.
I got a turkey, and some chestnuts,
Even bought marshmallows, too.

Hey, baby, hey, baby,
Can you think of anything that I didn't do?
Hey, honey, yeah,
Can you think of anything that I didn't do?
Hey, girl, hey, girl, hey, girl,
I even got the table set up for two,
Yeah, yeah,
I even got the table set up for two.
I've got everything for Christmas,
I've got everything for Christmas,
I've got everything for Christmas,
But, baby...

Who am I trying to fool?

..but not you.
Mmmmmmm,
Everything but you,
Everything but you.

    General Commenti love this song, especially during the holidays.
    & this year it has been on repeat since like August.
    This song is, seemingly, about a man getting all ready for the holidays. And realizing that as much as he does, he doesn't have, or can't have, the one person/thing that he wants: his woman.
    It's a sad, melancholy song. It's sad because there are people who we won't have around for the holidays no matter how much preparation we do because of our mistakes, theirs or because it's impossible (death). I know I'm rambling, but with the shootings that happened yesterday, in Conn., it's just reminds us to stay together and be close and friendly to everyone because are hard (Eminem: and they're getting even harder).
    This is a great song.
