TIRED OF CHRISTMAS
Copyright 2006 - MickTerry.com

On  Premature decorations Xmas song lyrics: Tired of Christmas early Halloween neighbors Santa Claus. Mick Terry YouTube YouTube,  performed  LIVE  by  MICK TERRY   (soon!)

It was a dark and stormy morning,
candy wrappers scattered all across my lawn.
But what hit next caught me without warning
when my neighbor's putting up his Santa Claus.

It was a twelve foot monster Santa,
just the kind to dominate the neighborhood.
But isn't this just the First of November?
Halloween's just gone. This can't be any good.

    I'm kind of getting TIRED OF CHRISTMAS,
    the tawdry whole commercial scene.
    It used to start just past Thanksgiving,
    but now it starts at Halloween.

Then after that he's got three snowmen,
twenty elves, five deer and Santa's flying sleigh.
He must think he's really quite a showman.
Ev'ry year he adds four things to his display.

    CHORUS

        Spirit? You want spirit?
        I've still got spirits in the trees outside my house.
        Spirit? Christmas spirit?
        And it'll take at least a month 'til I get the
        ghosts and witches down.

He's not alone. The trend is catching
and the stores all egg them on to "beautify".
I've got no right to be kvetching.
For next year, they'll start the Fourth- of July.

    CHORUS

        Besides witch,
  ( sic )
        the lights in my house dim when he turns his on.
        And he's just getting started ...

This song written by  Mick Terry  the day after Halloween 2006
when returning home from work at Los Angeles Times
& seeing three neighboring houses & yards fully decked out
in gawdy Christmas paraphenalia, looking worse than a used car lot.

After  Mick Terry  moved from his house where he had been
performing as  
Dr. DeCrepid  each Halloween from 1997-2004,
he helped  
Rick Polizzi  set up Rick's  Boney Island  from 2005-2009.
Rick would begin preparations for the event each June or July,
with over 120 skeletons throughout his yard, trees, roof & treehouse
in humorous animated settings spoofing an amusement park.
The faces of thousands of delighted visitors of all ages would be in smiles.

Happy Horrorween !!!
