Is it terrible that I just cannot smile?
Will it be horrible if I played it vile?
I get there’s cheer all around
There’s joy & laughter unbound
I can’t bob my head left to right
To tunes archaic, lyrics too bright
Swapping green for absurd trinklets
Your gold watch or silver anklets
Dinners with those I do not know
And those I do, I wish I did not
So can I take a step away?
Let me be misery & you your way
I am no Grinch but I don’t care
For your parties or other fanfare
May seem terrible that I don’t smile
But I’ll be horrible if I don’t be vile
