I am criminally awful at writing Christmas carols


I remember the first time I spent Christmas in jail
Had turkey and taters for dinner and then I read my mail

Letter said “Son I love you
but you been a bad boy this year
Don’t you know your mama
hopes you’re a free man next year”

I remember the second time I spent Christmas in jail
Might as well stay thru New Years, gonna happen without fail

New letter says “I love you
but you bring me to tears”
But don’t you know my mama’s
still hoping for next year

I’m coming home for Christmas, Mama, I’m coming home

This year I stayed home for Christmas, I told my mama a tale
I’m still a bad boy and I miss Christmas in jail
