I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Cuz I ain't nuttin' but bad

I broke my bed on Johnny's head
Somebody snitched on me
I hid a frog in sister's bed
Somebody snitched on me
I spilled some ink on mommy's rug
I made Tommy eat a bug
Bought some gum with a penny slug
And somebody snitched on me

Oh
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Cuz I ain't been nuttin' but bad

I won't be seein' Santa Clause
Somebody snitched on me
He won't come visit me because
Somebody snitched on me
Next year I'll be goin' straight
Next year I'll be good, just wait
I'd start now, but it's too late
Cuz somebody snitched on me

Oh oh oh oh
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Cuz I ain't been nuttin' but bad

Better be good
Whatever you do
Cuz if you don't
I'm warning you
You'll get nuttin' for Christmas
Nuts!

I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad
[Yeah so mad]
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Cuz I ain't been nuttin' but bad
Cuz I ain't been nuttin' but bad

[Talking, screaming, celebrating]

[Spoken]
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas, because I contributed to the greenhouse affect, which is melting polar ice caps. We're melting the North Pole where Santa Clause lives; he's mad.

    Reminds me of my diet plans . . . Ate one cookie; what the heck, might as well eat the whole jarful. But, "next week i'll go straight". This song reflects the kid in all of us who rationalizes bad behavior.

    Once this kid was bad, he knew he'd get nothing for christmas. So, what the heck, might as well be bad the rest of the year.
    Next year i'll be goin' straight
    Next year i'll be good, just wait
    I'd start now, but it's too late
