At Last, I'm Ready for Christmas

This song is by Stan Rogers and appears on the album From Coffee House to Concert Hall (1999).

Last Boxing Day the wife went out the "White Sales" for to see
In trunk-load lots bought half-price paper and tinsel for the tree
I packed it up for use this year in a box I marked so plain
That stuff would sure be handy now, but it's never been seen again

At last I'm ready for Christmas, I've even finished the tree
At last I'm ready for Christmas, like I thought I'd never be
With my feet propped up by a good hot fire and a matching inside glow
At last I'm ready for Christmas, with nearly two hours to go

We swore this year we'd start off early, no need to rush around
The intention was to start in August when the prices still were down
But it was dentist-this and new bike-that and the money melts away
So I had to wait for Christmas bonus and did it all yesterday

At last I'm ready for Christmas, I've even finished the tree
At last I'm ready for Christmas, like I thought I'd never be
With my feet propped up by a good hot fire and a matching inside glow
At last I'm ready for Christmas, with nearly two hours to go

We must be fools, just look at that pile, you can hardly see the tree
We said this year we'd keep things simple, then did our usual spree
But it feels so good when the kids go nuts! It's worth the toil and strain
These kids are only this young once and they'll never be so again

At last I'm ready for Christmas, I've even finished the tree
At last I'm ready for Christmas, like I thought I'd never be
With my feet propped up by a good hot fire and a matching inside glow
At last I'm ready for Christmas, with nearly two hours to go
