The Lyrics

I've maxed my credit card, can't spend a dime,
My family's needs will be unmet, at Christmas time,
And though I'd like to buy, and wrap, with love they're signed,
My gifts will be imaginary for my credit's been declined.

My husband is a jerk, All he does is spend,
If he can't buy us stuff, he feels we can't depend,
On him to be a man, by money he's defined,
If only he would understand, we want his time.

I love my family, my wife I've wined and dined,
But they keep wanting me to see them, how I've pined,
How can I show my face, with hands of gifts unlined,
I want so much to show them how I'm kind.

We can't keep on like this, our house is full,
He's bought us everything, he's such a fool,
We never see him now he's buying us more stuff
The phantom of the shopper has never got us enough.

We see the holidays, so bright and gay,
I want to spend some time with you, if just a day,
Alas it cannot be, for bills I'm/He's way behind,
The Phantom of the Shopper has completely lost his mind.

Don't know if I'll ever perform this - don't have the vocal range.

You think Phantom of the Opera was by MICHAEL BOLTON???? That's like saying Hamlet was written by the National Enquirer!
