lyrics

It's the same each year,
We get lost in a rush around shops,
When we want to be sincere,
To those we hold so dear,

Empty bank accounts,
A mad dash to spend our cash,
On this junk in huge amounts,
When it's the thought that counts,

And while it's a lovely gesture,
I don't feel the need to test your love,
With token gifts to me,
I've already got more than I could need,

It's another pair of socks,
A DVD that I won't watch,
I don't care for stacks of stuff,
The fact you're there's enough,

Gridlocked checkout queues,
Gift ideas pumped in our ears,
But it's all too naff to choose,
I think we've got confused,

Jumpers that don't fit,
Boring books that won't get a look,
Ornaments and cheap trinkets,
But I want none of it,

And I know it sounds ungrateful,
But these words are far from hateful,
It's just that all these novelties,
Couldn't mean as much as you mean to me,

It's another pair of socks,
A DVD that I won't watch,
I don't care for stacks of stuff,
The fact you're there's enough,

Yeah, your very presence is a present enough.
