First she didn't like Christmas
But she'll be singing carols before the credits
Why am I watching Christmas specials again

Peace on earth is what they say
But stores are open Christmas Day
Biodegradable fake snow
Under the fake tree
And the wrapped boxes
That are all empty

But my ugly Christmas sweater
Might just be part of the answer
Maybe this year we will be better
At being honest with each other

Yeah my ugly Christmas sweater
In this less than ideal weather
Helps me put some pieces together somehow

Christmas lunch what are we bringing
Work party what am I wearing
Don't you dare get me a present
Unless I already got one for you

Party favors stocking stuffers
How much is enough I wonder
Mary and Joseph still wander
On the oak mantle
Trying to find the manger and the stable

But my ugly Christmas sweater
Somehow helps relieve the pressure
Proves the perfect wrapping we chase after
Is not what really matters

In our ugly Christmas sweaters
Maybe we can be real with each other
Stop competing with each other
Look for ways to help each other

In our ugly Christmas sweaters
In our ugly Christmas sweaters
In our ugly Christmas sweaters
In our ugly Christmas sweaters
