• Brandon Heath - The Day After Thanksgiving Lyrics

    From the album Christmas Is Here

    There's still plenty of leaves, golden on the trees
    Hoodies, blue jeans, and football
    Bonfires and school nights, scarecrows and hayrides
    It's fall, everywhere except the mall

    I don't want to hear about Santa Claus comin'
    No silver bells or a dozen drummers drummin'
    I don't want to see an inflatable nothin'
    ‘Til the day after Thanksgiving
    (And not a day early)

    Don't plug in those electric candles
    Or dangle those stockings from the living room mantle
    Those tangled up lights are more than I can handle
    ‘Til the day after Thanksgiving

    Then, oh, let it snow
    Go and tell everyone you know
    That Christmas is here
    Every day between now and New Year

    Don't deck the halls with the tinsel or the holly
    You can make me grumpy but you can't make me jolly
    Elves don't even make curly-head dollies
    ‘Til the day after Thanksgiving

    Then, oh, let it snow
    Christmas card everyone you know
    Then pour on the cheer
    Every day between now and New Year

    I want the cookies and the mistletoe kissin'
    Angel on top of a tall tree glistenin'
    Wrap it all up in a pretty red ribbon
    The Day after Thanksgiving
    (You can put antlers on your car for all I care)
    As long as it's the day after Thanksgiving
