Rosie:
Don't want tinsel
Don't want bows
Don't want Rudolph's
Shiny nose
I'm gonna eat
For Christmas

Gloria:
From my diet
I will stray
But I'll workout
The next day
(Oh what a shock! )
Gonna eat
For Christmas

Both:
It's a time
For giving
Rosie:
Won't you give me
Mashed potatoes
And ham?
Both:
It's a time
For sharing
Gloria:
Are you gonna
Polish off
Those yams?
Rosie:
You mean these?
Gloria:
No?
Rosie:
Yes I am

Rosie:
I don't say
This to be nice
I'll have more
Black beans and rice
Gonna eat
For Christmas

Gloria:
At the family shindig,
Gonna be
The Christmas pig
Both:
But I'll leave some room
Gloria:
I'm planning quite a buffet
Rosie:
Please don't throw away
Both:
That leftover food
Santa gave us some advice
To be naughty's very nice
Cause when you're stuffed
It'll always feel like
Christmas to you

Rosie:
Oh,
That was exhausting,
Oh we got a break now?
Gloria:
Oh, yeah
Rosie:
I am so hungry Glo,
What'ya got?
Gloria:
Put down that sandwich
Rosie:
Well,
Do you have anything
Gloria:
You can't eat now
Rosie:
I can eat this now
Gloria:
No, there's no time
Rosie:
How much time
Do we have?
Gloria:
We're almost
Going to sing now...
Rosie:
Let me just.
Wait...
I can swallow...
You take
The first part
Gloria:
Get her some water
For god sake
Rosie:
I'll join you, go.

Gloria:
There's a twinkle
In my eye
For a piece
Of pumpkin pie
Gonna eat
For Christmas

Rosie:
If I eat
One more soufflй,
I won't fit
In Santa's sleigh
Both:
I'll be filled
With gloom
Gloria:
To face the scale
The next day,
Is no holiday
Rosie:
We'll sing
A different tune
(You know it)
Gloria:
Take advantage
While we may
Rosie:
Let's pig out
On Christmas day
Cause
When you're stuffed
It'll always feel
Like Christmas
To you

Rosie:
That was fun
Gloria:
Whoa, Yeah
Rosie:
You know
There's
A candy machine
In the lobby.
Did you see it?
No, it's there.
Gloria:
I can't believe you
Rosie: Oy!
