Intro: C

C             D
  Another year over
              F
Where do they go to
               G C
It’s a mystery
           D
Now it’s December
             F
So much to remember
                 
Before Christmas eve


C            D
  I’m already late
                  F
And my train is delayed
                        G C
“disruption” on the line
            D
I race into work
                   F
And the place is beserk
                      
Yes it’s Christmas time

Chorus:
C  D                 G
     I wanna find the greatest gift
      C      G   C   G
I can give my family
C
But right now
G                    C
I don’t have time to breathe


C                   D
  The streets are chaotic
             F
The shops idiotic
                            G C
There’s a que for the que?!
                      D
a granny’s taking her time
                    F
At the front of the line

“91. 92”


C                   D
  There’s a party at work
                  F
And the manager’s twerking
                G #B
Inappropriately
               D
To top off the day
                   F
Another train is delayed
            
It’s a catastrophy


Em                  F
  Christmas time is here
             C        G
“I’d like to spend the time
                F
With the ones I love so dear.”

Chorus:
C                    G 
  I’m tryn’a find the greatest gift
      C      G   C
I can give my family
  F               D                G  A
I don’t have time, there’s only one of me


        F                  G          
Tell me how do people do it all
     F           G
I’ll never get it done
   F               G
If only there was a way to be
   F            G
In two places at once


C            D
  If I wasn’t alone
                F
What if I had a clone?
                        G C
I could do so much more!
                  D
It would all be a breeze
                   F    
With a couple more mes

I’d have time galore!

Chorus:
C                 G
  I wanna find the greatest gift
      C      G   C
I can give my family
    F                 G             C
The greatest gift that I can give is me


D                      Em
 Now I can be with the boss
                   G
And empty out my inbox
               A D
Simultaneously
           D       G
Leaving me time to spend

With my family and friends
                D Em
Where I wanna be


                 A
I wanna find the greatest gift
      D       A   Bm
I can give my family
    G                  A             D
The greatest gift that I can give is me

Repeat -and improvise-:
        Em       A
I wanna find the greatest gift
      D       A   Bm
I can give my family
    G                  A             D     
The greatest gift that I can give is me
