Story Behind the Song

A hard working man makes up his mind he's not working on the holidays regardless of whether it costs him his job or not.

Lyrics


VERSE 1
Ever since I can remember, the 25th of December
I'd have to punch a clock and work 'til I'm half dead
So I told my wife and children that this year it's gonna be different
Instead of punchin' that clock I'm gonna punch my boss instead

CHORUS 1
'Cus I ain't workin' on Christmas this year
No, I'd rather be with my family than here
Well, I worked all day Black Friday,
But this Christmas is gonna be my day
No I ain't workin' on Christmas this year

VERSE 2
My boss tells me I gotta work, so I tell him he's such a jerk
Cus' I told him months ago and I made it clear
So he says "Don't be comin' back", so I says "Catch you later, Jack"
'Cus I ain't workin' on Christmas this year

CHORUS 2
No I ain't workin' on Christmas this year
'Cus I'd rather be with my family than here
So you can take this job and shove it,
'Cus I never did really love it
No I ain't workin' on Christmas this year

BRIDGE
I don't care how much you're gonna pay
Just for one day leave it alone
'Cus Christmas don't last but one day
And it's a day we should all be home

VERSE 3
Well, I lost my job but I don't care
'Cus I never did really like it there
And I know I'll find a better job somewhere
And I'll tell my new boss right way
That there's a certain holiday
that I ain't never gonna work and that's Christmas, so there



CHORUS 3
And I ain't workin' on Christmas next year
No, I'd rather be with my family right here
Well, the hours and pay are crappy
So I'd rather be broke and happy
No, I ain't workin' on Christmas next year

VERSE 4
And all my friends and family
We all stayed home so happily
And no one worked on Christmas
Not even store clerks worked on Christmas
Not even truck drivers worked on Christmas
Not even waitresses worked on Christmas
No, we all stayed home on Christmas this year

(Except for Santa Claus, but he only works one day a year anyway)
