This arrangement was made for the 2003 “Happy Merry Lyric Contest,” hosted by Minnesota Public Radio. Listeners were invited to submit new lyrics to three familiar Christmas carols and the winners, chosen on the basis of cleverness and singability, got to hear their efforts sung by Dare To Breathe on the air.

It is my experience that everyone has someone like this in their family.

Be careful, don’t tear the paper,
Be careful taking the tape off,
Be careful to save the ribbon,
We can use it next year

You see this gift bag? It’s not dèja vu:
You put my present in it at my birthday last June.

It’s wrinkled, but we can iron it,
It’s folded, but we can use it,
It’s almost completely shredded,
But it’s perfectly good.

Don’t throw it away, how wasteful of you!
I’ve used the same paper since 1962.

Just cross out the “Happy Birthday”
Just cross out the “Thinking of You”
Just cross out “On Your Retirement”
…and write “Christmas” in.

It’s still a good card, now where is that pen?
Just cross out your own name and mail it again.

Be careful, don’t tear the paper,
Be careful taking the tape off,
Be careful to save the ribbon,
We can use it next year.

~Jean Sramek
