Dm7/C G/D C/E Am/CI'm a man of reason, and they say 'tis the season
Dm7/C G/D C/E E/BTo be jolly, but it's folly when you volley for position
Dm7 G7 C Am7Never in existence has there been such a resistance
Dm7 G7 C E7To ideas meant to free us, if you could see us then you'd listen
Dm7 G7 C Am7Toiling through the ages making toys on garnished wages
Dm7 G7 C E7There's no union, we're only through when we outdo the competition
Dm7 G7 C C7I make toys but I've got aspirations
Dm7 G7 C C7Make some noise, use your imagination
Dm7 G7 C C7Girls and boys, before you wish for
Dm7 G7What you wish for, there's a list for who's been
Dsus2 Cadd9 G/B G C Csus4 C N.C.Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf
Dm7 G7 C Am7A full indentured servitude can reflect on one's attitude
Dm7 G7 C E7But that silly red hat just makes the fat man look outrageous
Dm7 G7 C Am7Absurd though it may seem, you know I've heard there's even been
Dm7 G7 C E7Illegal doping, and though we're coping, I just hope it's not contagious
Dm7 G7 C Am7You try to start a movement and you think you see improvement
Dm7 G7 C E7But when thrown into the moment, we just don't seem so courageous
Dm7 G7 C C7I make toys but I've got aspirations
Dm7 G7 C C7Make some noise, use your imagination
Dm7 G7 C C7Girls and boys, before you wish for
Dm7 G7What you wish for, there's a list for who's been
Dsus2 Cadd9 G/B G Cadd9Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf
G6/BYou look at yourself, you're an elf
A#6b5 A7sus4 Fmaj13 And the shelf is just filled with disappointing memories
Cadd9 G6/B A#6b5 Trends come and go, and your friends wanna know
A7sus4 Fmaj13 Em7Why you aren't just happy making crappy little gizmos
Dm G Csus4 C N.C.Every kid knows they'll just throw this stuff away
Dm7 G7 C Am7We're used to repetition so we drew up a petition
Dm7 G7 C E7We the undersigned feel undermined, let's redefine employment
Dm7 G7 C Am7We know that we've got leverage, so we'll hand the fat man a beverage
Dm7 G7 C E7He'll sit back while we attack the utter lack of our enjoyment
Dm7 G7 C Am7It may be tough to swallow, but our threats are far from hollow
Dm7 G7 C N.C. E7He may thunder, but if he blunders he may wonder where the toys went
Dm7 G7 C C7I make toys but I've got aspirations
Dm7 G7 C C7Make some noise, use your imagination
Dm7 G7 C C7Girls and boys, before you wish for
Dm7 G7What you wish for, there's a list for who's been
Dsus2 Cadd9 G/B GNaughty or nice, but consider the price
Dsus2 Cadd9 G/B GNaughty or nice, but consider the price
Dsus2 Cadd9 G/B G N.C. C(7)Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf
