The Lyrics

Pete Seeger adapted the original from the Biblical book of Ecclesiastes.
(instrumental opening)

Now, everything
we return!
Past Christmas season
we return!
And it's time for this, our purpose
motors' revvin'.

I received this gift.
I don't know why.
How much you spend?
And where must I go?
So off the mall
I now must creep.
I could now laugh
but lines, I weep.

Now, everything
we return!
Past Christmas season
we return!
And it's time for this, our purpose
motors' revvin'.

To Macy's I go
and then to Lowe's.
To Target I go
and then to Sears.
A time I spend on line
it seems like it
has lasted for years.

Now, everything
we return!
Past Christmas season
we return!
And it's time for this, our purpose
motors' revvin'.

A sweater too small.
A toy that breaks down.
A CD machine
that just doesn't work.
A gift I could embrace.
But I will refrain from embracing.

(instrumental break)

Now, everything
we return!
Past Christmas season
we return!
And it's time for this, our purpose
motors' revvin'.

A silly board game
with pieces I'll lose.
The game's batteries
you did not include.
This gift you loved
but I do hate.
I'll take it back.
I swear it's not too late!

(instrumental fadeout)

Ah, yes...the traditional post-yuletide rush to the shops to take back unwanted schlock. Great job! 555

I love your use of the original song. By the way, why can't people just give gift certificates?

Well, I gave Arwen a gift certificate once, and she got so mad... let's just say people were calling me "Rudolph" for a month! For a moment, I thought you wrote, "Why can't people just give chocolates?" After I gave her that, she kissed the boo-boo and made it better.

Lots and lots of fun, here, Michael...but I can't BELIEVE you took back the board game I bought you. I thought "Lord of the Rings Stratego" was on your list! =( (Don't worry...I have an extra set that you can use when you realize your grave mistake!)
