jt make up your mind jt tell you one more time (D7)
jt make up your mind you got (A) 10 days left in december (G)
you?re going drive your mom out of her mind

i don?t want to hear about christmas anymore
all your snoopy cups and reindeer, i hide em when i can
see there?s a kitten in the alley papa
and i can see she?s all run down
so i want me, this cat i found

if you think i?m askin for some bible stories on a cd
or a pair of pumped up shoes
there?s one thing momma you don?t know about me
i want me, i want me, i want me this cat i fount

jt, we could understand
your momma and me, we do what we can (7)
jt - what you want to do this for?
i see you been stealing tuna from the all night store
look you cut your finger on the tuna can
