Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Some reluctance to join the family...

Do I have to go to Christmas

by Reese Turner

Do I have to go to Christmas
With your fam-ly at their mobile home
Even though its double-wide
Has more smoke than fire inside
And, there ain’t no yard where I can roam.
 
Now, the turkeys and the fruitcakes
And all the nuts in your fam-ly tree
Get too deep in Christmas spirits
Yellin’ things I hate to hear-its
Just not fun - it’s a funny-farm to me.
 
Just tell ‘em I got a cold, tell ‘em I tore my pants or
Tell ‘em I ran off with Dancer and Prancer
Tell ‘em if the phone rings, I must be here to answer
You just go.  You just go. Pleeeeease!
 
Honey, you know I love you, and I’d
Love to have a Christmas here with you
But, with all your fam-ly ties,
The loaded guns, the bloodshot eyes,
That Christmas is sure more than I can do!
 
Just tell ‘em I got a cold, tell ‘em I tore my pants or
Tell ‘em I ran off with Dancer and Prancer
Tell ‘em if the phone rings, I must be here to answer
You just go.  You just go. Pleeeeease!
 
Do I have to go to Christmas
With your fam-ly at their mobile home
Even though its double-wide
Has more smoke than fire inside
And, there ain’t no yard where I can roam.
