Song Description

A bright and cheery, old-timey song with a heartwarming tale about Christmas in the busy modern world. It will make you smile when you hear what these folks decide to do when they are stuck in Christmas traffic. Fun and silly with touches of country, Dixieland, retro pop and vaudeville.

Lyrics

INTRO:

Christmas Eve at the office, tying up loose ends,
Before going home to my family, my hearth and a few friends,
Jumped on the freeway, Gee what a mistake,
I've sat here for hours, how long will this take?

CHORUS:

I'm having Gridlock Christmas,
With people I don't even know,
Though friends and family can't be here,
We'll have good old Christmas cheer,
And carols on the car radio,

VERSE 1:

Someone's built a bonfire in the fast lane,
Folks gathering 'round its cheery amber light,
They'll all stranded just like me, Oh, what a place to be,
Huddled on the freeway singing Silent Night,

CHORUS:

I'm having Gridlock Christmas,
With people I don't even know,
Though friends and family can' be here,
We'll have good old Christmas cheer,
And carols on the car radio,

VERSE 2:

People opening car trunks filled with boxes,
Presents bright and shiny from the mall,
Exchanging gifts, exchanging names,
You know, it's kind of strange,
We're having a dandy Christmas after all,

CHORUS:

I'm having Gridlock Christmas,
With people I don't even know,
Though friends and family can' be here,
We'll have good old Christmas cheer,
And carols on the car radio,

INTERLUDE:

"That semi over there is filled with groceries,"
"And that flatbed's loaded down with Christmas trees,"
"And our motor-home has an oven for the turkey,"
"Looks like we've got everything we need,"

You all know the words now,
So the next time it comes around, I want everybody to sing, okay?

CHORUS:

I'm having Gridlock Christmas,
(That's very good),
With people I don't even know,
(You over there in the Edsel,
SING OUT!).
Though friends and family can' be here,
(oh yes I LOVE IT!!),
We'll have good old
Christmas cheer, (SING!!!!),
And carols on the car radio.
