The Night Before the Night Before Christmas

Two thirds of the way done.. hooray!

The 20th track on His ND Xmas is "The Night Before the Night Before Christmas" by The Bobs.

The Bobs' Christmas album Too Many Santas is another one of the few single artist Christmas albums I can listen to from start to finish, and I think I've included songs from it on my last four Christmas mixes.

"The Night Before The Night Before Christmas" tells the story of a holiday party hosted by a couple about to be divorced, but the wife is waiting until after the holidays to serve the papers.

Their holiday party has secrets in the air
Something that he doesn't share
She's found another, she's movin' on
The day after New Years she'll be gone

The gift that she's giving he can't foresee
a gift that begins with a "D"
When he gets the papers
Things will look grim
Why ruin Christmas for him?

I can't find "The Night Before The Night Before Christmas" on youtube, but here are the Bobs with their unique take on
"Santa's Got A Brand New Bag".
