Well, we'd all had to wake up
For the birth of our Lord
My folks and my brother in an '82 Ford
We pulled in a drive-way filled up with cars
Old aunts and old uncles, Lord, I see stars

Then we'd run to the kitchen
You know kids and their games
Play fetch with old buster
Call each other names

And Paddie be singin'
While supper was cooking
We'd unwrap the gifts
When no one was lookin'

Let's all gather 'round
Grandpa will say the blessing
Aunt Jane, she fell asleep
Mary Kay burned the dressing

But we got all of our friends and family here
And now I'm grateful for Christmas this year

Well, this year we're in Houston, let's all get together
Man, I almost saw snow, can you believe this weather
Who's gonna be here, uncle Frank can't make it
Since Grandpa died, I don't know, if man, I can take it

Well, there's presents and sweater
And the pie don't taste right
And dad and the TV are starting to fight
I wish I had a drink or maybe a dozen
Lord, what I'd give for one good looking cousin

So let's all gather around
Dad, you say the blessing
Aunt Jane, she fell asleep
Mary Kay forgot the dressing

But got all of our friends and family here
And now I'm grateful for Christmas this year

Hey mom, how you doin'? Yeah, I miss him too
No, all the Christmas lights don't make your hair look blue
The cousins ain't coming and John's overseas
And guess my wife loves her folks more than me

But the ladies from the church said they might stop by
I brought you this picture, oh mama, don't cry
Let's play cards and watch some news channel
I love you too, thanks for the [Incomprehensible]

So let's all gather around
I guess I'll say the blessing
Aunt Jane, she fell asleep
And I never cared for dressin'

But we got all of our friends and family here
And now I'm grateful for Christmas this year
Oh, I'm grateful for Christmas this year
