The Day After Thanksgiving

There's still plenty of leaves, golden on the trees
Hoodies, blue jeans, and football
Bonfires and school nights, scarecrows and hayrides
It's fall, everywhere except the mall

I don't want to hear about Santa Claus comin'
No silver bells or a dozen drummers drummin'
I don't want to see an inflatable nothin'
‘Til the day after Thanksgiving
(And not a day early)

Don't plug in those electric candles
Or dangle those stockings from the living room mantle
Those tangled up lights are more than I can handle
‘Til the day after Thanksgiving

Then, oh, let it snow
Go and tell everyone you know
That Christmas is here
Every day between now and New Year

Don't deck the halls with the tinsel or the holly
You can make me grumpy but you can't make me jolly
Elves don't even make curly-head dollies
‘Til the day after Thanksgiving

Then, oh, let it snow
Christmas card everyone you know
Then pour on the cheer
Every day between now and New Year

I want the cookies and the mistletoe kissin'
Angel on top of a tall tree glistenin'
Wrap it all up in a pretty red ribbon
The Day after Thanksgiving
(You can put antlers on your car for all I care)
As long as it's the day after Thanksgiving
