Intro: Eb

Eb             F
  Another year over
              Ab
Where do they go to
               Bb Eb
It’s a mystery
           F
Now it’s December
             Ab
So much to remember
                 
Before Christmas eve


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

Chorus:
Eb  F                 Bb
     I wanna find the greatest gift
      Eb      Bb   Eb   Bb
I can give my family
Eb
But right now
Bb                    Eb
I don’t have time to breathe


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

“91. 92”


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


Gm                  Ab
  Christmas time is here
             Eb        Bb
“I’d like to spend the time
                Ab
With the ones I love so dear.”

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


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


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

I’d have time galore!

Chorus:
Eb                 Bb
  I wanna find the greatest gift
      Eb      Bb   Eb
I can give my family
    Ab                 Bb             Eb
The greatest gift that I can give is me


F                      Gm
 Now I can be with the boss
                   Bb
And empty out my inbox
               C F
Simultaneously
           F       Bb
Leaving me time to spend

With my family and friends
                F Gm
Where I wanna be


                 C
I wanna find the greatest gift
      F       C   Dm
I can give my family
    Bb                  C             F
The greatest gift that I can give is me

Repeat -and improvise-:
        Gm       C
I wanna find the greatest gift
      F       C   Dm
I can give my family
    Bb                  C             F     
The greatest gift that I can give is me
