Goin' Through the Motions This Christmas (Live) (Beatnik Turtle Music)

Christmas, Recorded Live

Lyrics:

Well, we're goin' through the motions this Christmas
Yes, we're goin through the motions this Christmas
Same ol' story every year
Nothing new for Christmas 'round here

Well, Christmas comes every year
Whether we like it or not
And every year we do the same
Coz our spontaniety's shot
We always head up to our Grandparent's trailer lot
It seems a sad tradition
But it's the only one we've got

We load up all our gifts
And we drive off in the car
Getting there is easy
It's the leaving part that's hard
There's not much room to park
Coz of all the junk cars in their yard
Grandma always hugs me
Grandpa asks who the hell we are

And we're goin' through the motions this Christmas
Yes, we're goin through the motions this Christmas
Same ol' song played every year
Nothing new for Christmas 'round here

Grandma's got the trailer decked out
In multi-colored lights
And the same ol' tree that's up all year
Finally makes sense tonight
But the Santa caps on the pink flamingos
Don't exactly look quite right
Grandma says she's glad we came
Grandpa asks if we want to fight

Grandma cooks the same meal
Each year for Christmas dinner
Although each year the turkey gets dryer
And the gravy ever thinner
We always lie and tell her
Her fruitcake is a winner
Grandma gives us cookies
Grandpa asks who the hell let us in 'ere

Well, we're goin' through the motions this Christmas
Yes, we're goin through the motions this Christmas
Same ol' gift-givin' every year
Nothing new for Christmas 'round here

Well, we're goin' through the motions this Christmas
Yes, we're goin through the motions this Christmas
Same ol' carols sung every year
Nothing new for Christmas 'round here

We then all go to midnight mass
Although it's all packed up
And on the way Grandma reminds me
Not to act up
There's so many people at the church
The communion line's backed up
Grandpa coughs and proudly shows me
What he's just hacked up

We all leave and take them home
And Grandma takes command
By insisting on a shortcut that adds an
Hour to the hour hand
You'd think that after all these years
We'd finally understand
Grandma says "see y'all next year"
Grandpa says "get off my land!"

Well, we're goin' through the motions this Christmas
Yes, we're goin through the motions this Christmas
I can hear the sleighbells ringing
Everybody started singing
Goin' through the motions this Christmas
Yes, we're goin through the motions this Christmas
Same ol' story every year
Nothing new for Christmas 'round here

Spoken:
God bless us, everyone.
