Lyrics : Getting Ready for Christmas Day

From early in November to the last week of December
I got money matters weighing me down
Oh the music may be merry, it's only temporary
I know Santa Claus is coming to town
In the days I work my day job, in the nights I work my night
But it all comes down to working man's pay

I'm getting ready, I'm getting ready, ready for Christmas Day

I got a nephew in Iraq, it's his third time back
But it's ending up the way it began
With the luck of a beginner, he'll be eating turkey dinner
On a mountain top in Pakistan

I'm getting ready, oh, I'm getting ready
For the power and the glory and the story of Christmas Day
