A fun little Christmas duet
, in which a boy
lament the gender
s they always find under the Christmas tree
I got dolls with silken sashes
And I tore out their eyelashes
Mom would wonder if I was evil
When I'd covet my brother's Knievel
Christmastime is filled with joy
But only if you're a little boy...
I got a rocket and a firetruck
How I always curse my luck
I never wanted trains or trolleys
All I wanted was paper dollies
Christmastime around the world
Is only good if you're a little girl...
We never got what we wanted
'Cause what we really wanted is each other's presents.
This may seem bad or just plain silly --
We could change the tag from Sally to Billy!
(Billy to Sally...)
I think we know now how we can be happy
We found a way to fool Mommy and Daddy
In some years we'll run into messes
When you start wanting to wear my dresses...
