Holiday Blues

Walked down the street
Looked at my shoes
Walked down the street
Got the holiday blues

Looked in the window
Frowned at myself
Looked in the window
Saw the empty shelves

All of them shoppers
Cleaned out the store
All of them shoppers
Arrived at four

Can’t do a thing
While I got these blues
Can’t make up my mind
About these red shoes

Looked at the sky
Looked all around
People aren’t smiling
All I see are frowns

Where is the spirit
Where is the joy
Where is the fun
Gonna buy me a toy

Bye bye you shoppers
Don’t run yourselves down
Me and my blues
We’re leaving right now
