Cold tears fall from his eyes
As he turns into the night and walks away
 Lucille runs outside 
Just to see if there might be a sleigh  Little Bobby stares down
At the plate where cookies still lay

Saw Mom run down the hall and holler wait
Doug you're drunk don't come inside

He threw a present really hard
That almost hit Mom's new boyfriend Ray
And yelled ho-ho lucky for you she's here
And said that Santa can't stay
