"She Gave Me Hell for Christmas" belongs on every radio station RIGHT NOW, disc jockeys. If you work for a radio station, add it to the playlist permanently, returning every December along with the Bing and the Mannheim and the Guaraldi." - Conner Ratliff (Rolling Stone)

lyrics

This year for Christmas we threw out the list
And gave one another our typical gifts.
I gave her a headache, she made me a fist
I gave her the finger and she gave me sh**.

Last year on Christmas was much like today.
I burned down her holly, she blew up my sleigh,
But this year is different; I'm not gonna stay.
I'm taking her presents and driving away.

And so the ghost of Christmas past and present are the same.
We deck the halls with broken glass and trim the tree with flames.

CHORUS:
She got me nothing but pissed off
I gave her nothing but tears.
She gave me hell for Christmas.
After I gave her the best of my years.

This year on Christmas I'm having a ball.
I sit in a hotel and stare at the wall.
I'm not gonna make up and I'm not gonna crawl.
I'll just sit here drinking till I can't recall.

No peace on earth, no mercy mild.
The time for cheer has passed.
The only thing I'll reconcile is whiskey and a glass.

She got me nothing but pissed off.
I gave her nothing but tears.
She gave me hell for Christmas.
Same thing she got me last year.

She got me nothing but pissed off.
I gave her nothing but tears.
She gave me hell for Christmas.
After I gave her the best of my years.

And I'll never get back the best of my years.
