Billy Holiday Holiday

This song was created for Game of Bands round 8 : "Holidays"

Lyrics:

?Billie Holiday Holiday (as recorded)
I?m gonna have a Billie Holiday holiday
Gonna sit here night and day and play the blues
Gonna pour a double whiskey
Make these foolish things all right
Trying not to think about you
And the way you look tonight
And yes I know that I?m a fool to want you
To listen for your key sound in the door
Maybe this year I can get along fine without you
While I listen to that lonely fire?s roar
I don?t need no baby Jesus
Don?t send no Christmas cards to me
There's no star, no white-winged angel
Atop my prickly, bare-branched tree
I?m boarding up my chimney
Cause Santa he ain?t welcome here no more
Gonna sit here night and day and play the blues
I don?t need no baby Jesus
I don?t need no baby Jesus
I?m boarding up my chimney
I?m gonna have a Billie Holiday holiday
Although it?s not the Christmas that I?d choose
Wishing I was in your new lover's shoes
While I'm ringing in the new year
With my memories and my booze
I?m boarding up my chimney
Don?t send no Christmas cards to me
There's no star, no white-winged angel
Atop my prickly, bare-branched tree
I don?t need no baby Jesus
I don?t need no baby Jesus
I?m boarding up my chimney
I?m gonna have a Billie Holiday holiday
[Exit]
