BEST OF CHRISTMAS
Peter Nardolillo / Thomas Gilmore / Bill Keyes / Jay Clementi

Sitting out here with my new family telling
Stories from home round a cutout Christmas tree
With blinking lights plugged to a white generator
Hot turkey supper straight from a dehydrator
Praying we're blessed
Scared to death
Making the best of Christmas

Just improvising laughing to keep from crying
Bragging on our moms homemade pie
Wishing it was colder looking over our shoulder
While we're singing Silent Night
Got my baby taped to my vest
We're just making the best of Christmas

Ed's got a girlfriend says she's a model
Mailed him some Crown in a Listerine bottle
We passed it around, it didn't last too long
We're all hoping something doesn't go wrong
Saying we're blessed
Lying to death
Making the best of Christmas

Just improvising laughing to keep from crying
Bragging on our moms' homemade pie
Wishing it was colder looking over our shoulder
While we’re singing Silent Night
Got my baby taped to my vest
We're just making the best of Christmas

No dessert left
Play some cards I guess
Making the best of Christmas
