It's the most stressful time of the year.

With the cell phones a-ringing,

And everyone telling you "You need a beer",

It's the most stressful time of the year.

 

It's the head-slapping-ist season of all.

With those Monday meetings,

And forced happy greetings when friends come to call

When you don’t want them to at all.

 

There'll be parties for hosting

And your friends will be boasting

Of their new Pla-a-as-ma TVs.

 

There'll be rubbish movies

And tales of the glories from

Christmases long, long ago.

 

It's the most cringe-inducing time of the year.

There'll be songs about it snowing

Even though the sun will be glowing

When love ones are near.

It's the most stressful time of the year.
