I’ve lost the Christmas Spirit (don’t worry….I’m fine)

I’ve lost the Christmas Spirit
It’s nowhere to be seen
I don’t want a White Christmas
This year it can stay green
I’ve lost all thoughts of putting up
A tree and Christmas lights
I don’t want to hear another song
About a Christmas night
I’ve tried to get the spirit
Reading cards from years gone by
I just can’t get in the feeling
And I know the reason why
Santa can stay home this trip
He can pass my house this year
I just can’t get in the spirit
Not a chance of that my dears
You see, as the new year dawns upon us
I will be unemployed and out of work
So, you see, the Christmas spirtit
is behind a feeling I can’t shirk
The spirit should be in me
But, this year it isn’t here
I think I’ll give up looking
There’s no hope for me, I fear
I’m not worried about the presents
But, the feeling’s not in me
I can’t find it in the music
I can’t find it in a tree
I think if Christmas Spirits
Came to work their magic act
I’d just pay them for their hours
And I think I’d send them back
Don’t waste your time on me boys
My Christmas spirit up and left
Of goodwill toward others
I feel I am bereft
I would hope next year to find it
But, this year it’s not in me
To wish a Merry Christmas
Maybe next year…we’ll just see.
