Track Name: Gettin' 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, but 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

And I'm Getting ready, Hey, 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 some mountain top in Pakistan

And I'm getting ready, Hey, I'm getting ready,

For the power and the glory 
and the story of that is Christmas Day

And I'm getting ready, Hey, I'm getting ready,

For the power and the glory and the story of the Christmas Day


guitar solo

If I could tell my Mom and Dad that the things we never had

Never mattered we were always okay

And I'm getting ready, Hey, I'm getting ready,

For the power and the glory 
And the story of that is Christmas Day
For the power and the glory 
And the story of that is Christmas Day
For the power and the glory 
And the story of that is Christmas Day

I'm getting ready
I'm getting' ready

This time I'm ready
Hey, I'm getting ready, ready for Christmas Day
For the power and the glory 
And the story of that is Christmas Day

Ah, you'll shoot your eye out kid
