Please Go Home for Christmas

 

Cars will be driviní a long long ways

As students go home for the holidays

Mamaís good food, those backhome friends

Fido and Tiger jumping on me again

 

Four months of laundry in my trunk

No stupid roommate in the top bunk

Yeah, fast internet (unfiltered)

Real cable TV

And a real decorated Christmas tree

 

No room inspections or RD directions

Curfewís a thing of the past

And though my bedroom became the store room

And I know the hot water donít last

 

So tell mommy and my dad

Iím not in high school, Iíve grown up a tad

Just let me sleep in, please cut me some slack

And donít complain when I grab the midnight snack

 

Ooh, bring me some cookies, and ten feet of snow

And let me sit and watch the fireplace glow
