I broke my bat 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, somebody snitched on me, oh

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

I put a tack on teacher's chair, somebody snitched on me
I tied a knot in Susie's hair, somebody snitched on me
Next year, we'll be going straight, next year, we'll be good, just wait
We'd start now but it's too late, somebody snitched on me, oh

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

So you better be good, whatever you do
'Cause if you're bad I'm warnin' you
You'll get nuttin' for Christmas
