Last Minute Holiday Gift - Song

Last Minute Holiday Gift

It’s that special time of year with the gifts under the tree

But if you look beneath my dear, you won’t find no gifts from me

It’s not because I was busy (no), it’s not because the holiday came up too fast

It’s because you’re the best, and ya’ save the best for last

So I’m gonna…

Pick up a couch from the side of the road, find a stray cat, wrap him up with a bow

Buy you everything on your grocery list, babe, I’m gonna get you a last-minute holiday gift

Some makeup samples from the mall, a painting that I made for you to hang on your wall

A little pet rock yeah his name is Cliff, babe, I’m gonna get you a last-minute holiday gift

Now the snow is falling down, the special day is almost here

Too late to order presents now, but my love don’t you fear

It’s not because it slipped my mind no, it’s not because I forgot (It’s not because I forgot)

You know they say you can’t hurry love, so I’m running out the clock

I’m gonna get…

A Christmas decoration from a neighbor’s lawn, grab a newspaper cut out every coupon

Sign you up for my email list, babe, I’m gonna get you a last-minute holiday gift

Shopping spree at the Trader Joe’s, or take you on a trip to the Dollar Store

24 singles on whatever you wish, babe, I’m gonna get you a last-minute holiday gift

Love is not a sprint baby. It’s a marathon.

That’s why I’m taking my sweet, sweet, time

to show you how much you mean to me.

Other guys do their holiday shopping early.

Like at the beginning of December, or maybe even November.

But I would never do that to you. You’re too special for that.

Baby, you’re the best. And you deserve the best.

And you save the best for last.

Taught myself to knit and I made you a scarf, put it on and I’ll take you for a walk in the park

I’ll even bring some bread we can feed to the fish, babe, I’m gonna get you a last-minute holiday gift

Some flowers from a random pasture, oops I think you are having an allergic reaction

Drive you to the doctor gotta get you there quick, you don’t have to thank me it’s a last- minute holiday gift

One day that rash will go away

But my love is here to stay

Happy Holidays, baby
