Something 's up with Jack,
Something's up with Jack,
Don't know if were ever going to get him back,
He's all alone up there,
Locked away inside,
Never Says A Word,
Hope he hasn't died,
Something's up with Jack,
Something's up with Jack,

Christmas time is buzzing in my skull,
Will it let me be I can not tell,
There's so many things I can not grasp,
When I think I've got it,
And then at last,
Through my boney fingers,
It does slip,
Like a snowflake in a fiery grip,
Something here I'm not quite getting,
Though I try I keep forgetting,
Like a memmory,
Long since past,
Here in a instant,
Gone in a flash,
What does it mean,
What does it mean,
In these little brick-a-bracks,
A secrets waiting to be cracked,
These dolls and toys confuse me so,
Confound it all,
I love it though,
Simple objects nothing more,
But something's hidden through a door,
Though I do not have the key,
Something's here I can not see,
What does it mean,
What does it mean,
What does it mean,
I've read these Christmas books so many times,
I know the stories,
And I know the rhymes,
I know the Christmas carols all by heart,
My skulls so full it's tearing me apart,
As often as I read them,
Something's wrong,
So hard to put my boney finger on,
Or perhaps it's really not as deep as I've been led to think,
Am I trying much to hard,
Of course I've been to close to see,
The answers right in front of me,
Right in front of me,
It's simple really very clear,
Like music drifting in the air,
Invisible...but everywhere,
Just because I can not see it,
Doesn't mean I can't believe it,
You know I think this Christmas thing,
Is not as tricky as it seems,
And why should they have all the fun,
It should belong to anyone,
Not anyone in fact but me,
Why I can make a Christmas tree,
And there's no reason I can find,
I couldn't handle Christmas time,
I bet I could improve it too,
And that's exactly what I'll do,
Eureka, I've Got It!!!!!
