I liked you better when you liked me better....


I see you brought your brand new beau
Dressed in red, yeah we all get the joke,
But a promise is a promise, lest we all soon forget
And you said it was forever, and that aint' happened yet

I sure as shit miss our missile toe,
Arm in arm in the midnight snow
The city dead silent, not a siren would sound
Both drunk, kinda sloppy but no one was around, but

That's all over now….

Merry Christmas, Happy New year
Can't believe you brought new friend Nick here,
Happy Holidays honey, now hit the road…

What's with guys and ironic beards,
What's with fellas renting prop reindeer,
I never really pegged you as a old chubby chaser
Dudes wearing lennon glasses and did he drive a sleigh here

Wrappin presents with the fire low
Taking bets on whose getting coal
He kept your gifts a secret so you'd still be surprised
I searched for disappointment in the look of your eyes,

But he knew just what you'd want...

Merry Christmas, Happy New year
Can't believe you brought your boyfriend Nick here,
Happy Holidays honey, now hit the road…

Ho Ho Ho, I heard you told him that you been really bad
Ho Ho Ho, now you've gone and sat on his lap
Why'd you have to go and do that…

I'm sorry if this seems unfair,
But would you still love me if I had white hair….
I'm sorry, I'm not jolly, and my belly don't shake
and I'm sorry if I get nasty when I've had too much drink

But I'm glad he makes you laugh, cause I could never do that...

Merry Christmas, Happy New year
Good luck new fat fucking friend Nick here,
Happy Holidays honey now, hit the road
