From “The Christmas Collection” (2011)

by Bob Malone

Pull down the tree, turn down the lights
Another Christmas is done
Oh, how I hate to see it go
Throw out the cards, tear down the wreath
I guess it’s time to move on
Seems like the season’s just begun

CHORUS I
With our better natures on display
This should last the whole year through
Wish I could find a way not to end this holiday
Christmas is over, but merry Christmas to you
Christmas is over, but merry Christmas to you

Say your goodbyes, see off the guests
It’s suddenly quiet around here
Seeing the family sure felt fine
We promise we’ll call, promise we’ll write
Promise we’ll visit real soon
But we never seem to find the time

CHORUS II
Here comes that melancholy feeling
Red, green, gold and silver turning blue
Wish I could find a way not to end this holiday
Christmas is over, but merry Christmas to you
Christmas is over, but merry Christmas to you

CHORUS III
This is the time of year the human race always does itself a favor
In the spirit of the season, stays on its best behavior
Now that the twenty-sixth is here, let’s hold on another year
Christmas is over, but merry Christmas to you
Christmas is over, merry Christmas to you…
