Track Name: Henry Gibson - Bad Ones
I’ve been working on this list all god-damned year
deciding which ones get the holiday cheer
this one’s good, not a bad bone in their body
this one’s bones have been a little bit naughty, ho ho ho
good ones never had it bad
bad trying to make good
ones never had it bad
bad trying to make good
ones never had it bad
bad trying to make good
ones never had it bad
like no one should
I’ve been writing about my role in this story
am I the red-tipped man defining their blood & glory?
if I give the diamond gift of gluttony to the good,
do I press out a pile of coal into the neighborhood?
No, I’m just an old man mushing to make good
ones, never had it bad
bad trying to make good
ones never had it bad
bad trying to make good
ones never had it bad
though maybe they should have
one little hiccup from a poison cup
they’d know I'd drink that milk
down the coal black fire chute to the bad one’s loot
the gifted toys to girls and boys from your’s truly
but even those sooted souls left me milk & cookies
and they would know how I would have that milk:
dizzy, blind, and vomiting in a stocking
I can faintly hear the robin hood ones knocking
they’ve got my life, my dogs, and my bag
this is the best christmas that they’ve ever had, ho ho ho
good ones never had it bad
bad trying to make good
ones never had it bad
bad trying to make good
ones never had it bad
though maybe they should have
one little hiccup from a poison cup
then they would know how I felt when I drank their milk.
