My name is Ebenezer
And this tale I bring to you
Gives an insight into living
From a killjoy's point of view
Before I start my Yuletide rant
A word of explanation.
Christmas is a drag to me
No cause for jubilation.
It comes around but once a year
Yet seems to last forever
I'm happy when it's been and gone
And it return? Well? NEVER!
Mistletoe and wreaths of holly
Christmas carols, Christmas cheer
Turkeys fattened up for stuffing
Same old bollocks every year
Christmas past, and Christmas presents
On line shopping takes the strain
Christmas served up via Broadband
Christmas spirit down the drain
Good-will to all? Well maybe not
Benevolence slipped by.
I'm sure by now you've figured out
I'm just an anti-social guy.
I hope that I've convinced you
Set your inner Humbug free
Make the world a better place
Become a Grumpy Git like me
