I Hate Christmas

No, I don't really hate Christmas, I'm just having a little fun today with a song that was recorded on the 1975 album Merry Christmas from Sesame Street.  Oscar the Grouch sings about how Grouches prefer their holidays. (I can't help agreeing with the part that it goes on much too long, however.)

I can't think of anything that's dumber.
To a Grouch, Christmas is a bummer!

Beaming faces everywhere, happiness is in the air
I'm telling you, it isn't fair! I hate Christmas!
People loaded with good will, giving presents, what a thrill
That slushy nonsense makes me ill. I hate Christmas!

I'd rather have a holiday like normal grouches do:
Instead of getting presents, they take presents back from you!
Heh heh!

Here comes Santa, girls and boys. So, who needs that big red noise!
I'll tell him where to put his toys! I hate Christmas!

And if you want the truth, I ain't so crazy about Easter or Labor Day either!

Christmas carols to be sung, decorations to be hung
Oh, yeah? Well, I stick out my tongue! I hate Christmas!
Christmas bells play loud and strong, hurts my ears, all that ding dong
Besides it goes on much too long! I hate Christmas!

I'd rather have a holiday with a lot less joy and flash
With a lot less cheerful smiling, and a lot more dirty trash, yeah!

Christmas Day is almost here, when it's over then I cheer
I'm glad it's only once a year! I hate Christmas!

And who put all this mistletoe all over my trash can?!
Phooey and bah humbug!


  1. I remember that song! I haven't heard that in years lol

  2. Ohhhh the memories...I remember that song and laughed when he sang it! I'll have to youtube it to see if I can relive that great memory!
