lyrics

The Christmas tree is still in the attic
Bing Crosby's singing, but I can't hear
The neighbors upstairs have been at it
For hours. I grab another beer

'Cause I'm drinking alone on Christmas
I'm drinking alone Christmas
It's my own celebration of alienation
I'm drinking alone on Christmas
Again ...
Again ...

Didn't bother with turkey or mistletoe
Resentment and anger will keep me full
Invited a hobo, but he didn't show
It's just me and Jack on this lonely yule

'Cause I'm drinking alone on Christmas
I'm drinking alone Christmas
It's my own celebration of alienation
I'm drinking alone on Christmas
Again ...
Again ...

It all started on one Christmas three years ago
Instead of saying grace, I read my personal manifesto
About the bourgeois co-optation of Christmas for commercial gain
Instead of presents I was giving free hugs to everyone
It didn't go so well; they said don't come back again
And that's how my Christmas came undone

'Cause I'm drinking alone on Christmas
I'm drinking alone Christmas
It's my own celebration of alienation
I'm drinking alone on Christmas
Again ...
Again ...

Quarter past midnight, I'm not so alone
The hobo shows up with some of his friends
Evan and Jim and Don Julio
We get some mixers and settle in

'Cause I'm drinking alone on Christmas
I'm drinking alone Christmas
It's my own celebration of alienation
I'm drinking alone on Christmas
Again ...
Again ...
