    Music & Lyrics by jay brannan

    dear santa, the thing is this year has been lame
    it always seemed, i always dreamed by now i'd have someone else's last name
    way past grown, sleeping in a shrunken bed
    all alone, unless you count the squatters tearing up my head

    tried so hard to be good all year long
    and we are all inherently bad, anne frank had it wrong

    santa, oh santa, where were you last night?
    i asked for nothing, i even left some cookies right
    by the open window, i don’t have a chimney, just a heart of gold, you see
    imagine my surprise that not even santa wants cookies from me

    dear santa, could you use a 6 foot 1 elf?
    i'm sick of taking stock from this widow's walk, up here searching for myself
    is there any way i could hop aboard your sleigh?
    take a holiday, leave the work to me, your red-nosed blue jay

    when people say the joy you bring's a children's thing, does it sting?
    'cuz i will ring silver bells & sing you're as real as martin luther king


    chocolate chip. oatmeal raisin. gingerbread, too.
    a full selection from my convection in little shapes of you
    free flowing ho-ho-ing's a lot for one man's jaws
    if you're feelin' brittle, i can bake a little mrs. for your claws/claus
