The Lyrics

This is an example of turning a Christmas song into one about the ordinary trials and tribulations of commuters across New Jersey. More specifically, it's about a guy who boards the train in Netcong to begin his trip to work in Hoboken at 6:58 each weekday morning.
I went to catch the eastbound train at 6:58, 6:58
Then I got on the eastbound train at 6:58 in the morning

And who was on that eastbound train at 6:58, 6:58?
Who was on that eastbound train at 6:58 in the morning?

Commuters from Mount Olive and Hackettstown at 6:58, 6:58
Commuters from Mount Olive and Hackettstown at 6:58 in the morning

Please tell me, where was I going at 6:58, 6:58?
Please tell me, where was I going at 6:58 in the morning?

Oh, I set off for Hoboken at 6:58, 6:58
Yes, I set off for Hoboken at 6:58 in the morning

It's the same routine five days a week, at 6:58, 6:58
It's always the same five days a week, at 6:58 in the morning

I don't have to worry about a thing unless I'm late, unless I'm late
I'm fortunate that I'm not late - I'll be on time again this morning

Then I'll make it to Hoboken around half past eight, around half past eight
I'll get to my destination around half past eight this morning

And once I get to my office, it will be great, it will be great
My job's so great that it is worth crossing almost the entire state every morning
