Baby Don't Go

Don't leave me for a fella in a cowboy hat
That would be awful, I'd really hate that
Don't cheat on me with a some young fancy pants
After all I deserve a second and third chance
Don't abandon me for someone with a lot of money
After all I'm your sweetie, I'm your honey
Don't dump me for someone who wears suede shoes
That'd give me a case of the blues
Don't run off with some guy who reads the National Review
That would be a horrible thing for you to do
Stay with me, my darling, my love, my sweet
We've got a love that can't be beat

The Holidays Are Over

Take down the tree -- we don't need it anymore
Put away the decorations -- we'll see them next year
Stop humming the carols -- that's all over now
Go back to a normal diet -- weight has been put on
The holidays are over and its back to work
The holidays are over and the alarm clocks need setting
The holidays are over and visitors have gone away
Life is ordinary and regular and normal again
It is plain and stripped of color
One day like the next
We again work for weekends that fly by so quickly
Sweep up the pine needles -- they're a sad reminder of what was
Pack up the ribbons and the paper and don't snag the lights
Black and white is back
No jolly greetings
It's over
It's done I tell you
Get back to work
