A timely song for Christmastime.

lyrics

Christmas Shopping At The 99 cents Store

'Tis the season to be jolly
But my life's become a folly
My generosity is something you won't see
The Christmas spirit haunts me
Each advertisement taunts me
I'll find a way to have some gifts beneath the tree
My bank account's history
So this year I'll be
Christmas shopping at the 99 cents store
Buying items you will never adore
Christmas shopping at the 99 cents store
In fluorescent decor

This economy has conned me
All the answers are beyond me
Will I ever get a chance to get back on my feet?
In the summer I got laid off
All my bills are far from paid off
Now the holidays are here and I cannot compete
My company set me free
So this year I'll be
Christmas shopping at the 99 cents store
House slippers made of purple velour
Christmas shopping at the 99 cents store
A plastic wreath for the door

The Christmas carols I hear
But they're not bringing good cheer
I'll try my best to be in better shape next year
I called off my plans to ski
Because this year I'll be
Christmas shopping at the 99 cents store
A rack of clothing that the cashier once wore
Christmas shopping at the 99 cents store
My gifts you'll abhor
Christmas shopping at the 99 cents store
