about

Another Christmas song! It's a hobby of mine.

This year I ponder the act of gift giving and how frustrating it is.

"I've heard it's all in the giving
But if you're gift-less
They'll loose that loving feeling

You're gonna have to settle
For what I've got
Which is a bag of old satsumas
And a lot of love
It might not be gold or frankincense
I'm far too stingy
It's Christmas who cares what you've spent?"

Track Name: Bag of Old Satsumas
Staring at the Amazon store front
I've been shopping for days now
I've had enough

Can't even write a list
How the hell does Santa do this?

I've heard it's all in the giving
But if you're gift-less
They'll loose that loving feeling

You're gonna have to settle
For what I've got
Which is a bag of old satsumas
And a lot of love
It might not be gold or frankincense
I'm far too stingy
It's Christmas who cares what you've spent?

I waited for Black Friday
Shoppers so ferocious I got myself a black eye day

Considered something homemade
But my baking won't last until the big day

I've heard it's all in the giving
But if you're gift-less
They'll loose that loving feeling

You're gonna have to settle
For what I've got
Which is a bag of old satsumas
And a lot of love
It might not be gold or frankincense
I'm far too stingy
It's Christmas who cares what you've spent?

I've bought you something special this year,
And I promise its not from Poundland
It's from somewhere far more upmarket
Somewhere more prestigious
Where every little helps
And no, you don't recognize that wrapping paper,
No you don't
And the best thing is,
If you don't want it
If you really don't want it
I'll have it

You're gonna have to settle
For what I've got
Which is a bag of old satsumas
And a lot of love
It might not be gold or frankincense
I'm far too stingy
It's Christmas who cares what you've spent?
