Some Assembly Required

Story Behind The Song

(Verse 1)
Well tonight is Christmas Eve
We?ve hung the lights and trimmed the tree
The little ones are fast asleep
And daddy?s really tired

The last few days we cleared the shelves
At Pennys, Sears and Bloomingdales
Now we become last minute elves
Some assembly required

Swing sets, dolls and bikes and trains
And countless other toys
Are dancing through the Christmas dreams
Of anxious girls and boys
While hammers, drills and butter knives
Construct their hearts? desire
We race the clock ?cause we still got
Some assembly required

(Verse 2)
Now where the heck?s that crescent wrench
I thought I left it on the bench
Or was it stolen by the Grinch?
Dang these rusty pliers

I rub my eyes to greet the dawn
My concentration?s almost gone
But I gotta get these fenders on
Some assembly required

(Repeat Chorus)

I hide the extra parts and give a jolly ho, ho, ho
The kids come running down the stairs,
Their happy hearts aglow ? oh oh

(Chorus 2)

Another sleepless Christmas eve
Is one small sacrifice
That brand new bike and doll house
Spark the magic in their eyes
Just being with the family
Sippin? cider by the fire
It?s the greatest gift of all
Some assembly required
