Hey....if stores can have their Christmas section completely up two weeks before Halloween.........

I thought about starting it then, but figured someone would track me down and beat me with my own stick!

Unfortunately, the ONLY youtube I can find of my favorite Christmas song has been modified...to include Dr. Who. Don't get me wrong, I adore Dr. Who, but it doesn't fit with this song. If I could find one with lyrics that'd be even better...but in lieu of youtube, I'll just post the lyrics *evil grin*
Oh, and the song?

Twist of the Magi - Rascal Flatts and SheDaisy.

I sold your Rolex
To buy that gold Versace dress
I set free your whiny French poodle
So you can get your beauty rest

[Chorus:]
And I did it all for you
I did it all (I did it all) for you
This Christmas (This Christmas)
All your dreams (all your dreams)
Will come true.

I put your mother on a Greyhound (You did what?)
You'd always hoped she'd have the chance to see the world (leave our mom alone)- now she can
I torched your Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues (no, no, no, no)
So I could be your only girl - and now I am

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge:]
How can I forget
All you've done for me, I'll get you yet
This is the season to give
But I can never forgive the damage that you've done
(Damage that you've done)
This must be love

I sank your bass boat (Not my bass boat, no, no, no)
So you'd have more time to spend with me
I hocked your grandma's diamond earrings (AAAHHHH!!)
For the down payment on an SUV
(Fully loaded, heated seats, in hunter green-is this for me?)

[Repeat Chorus]
