Lyrics:

It's getting harder to be Santa Claus

It's getting harder to be Santa Claus
They say I don't sell well anymore
They want Santa to be young and thinner
And have 100,000 fans on twitter
It's getting harder to be Santa Claus

All of the good girls and boys
Have grown out of my wooden toys
Don't want a train set, they want an iPod
Try teaching an elf to build an Xbox
It's getting harder to be Santa Claus

It's getting harder to be me
And to be jolly
No one knows what a bough of holly is
And their Christmas lists
Are pushing me close to bankruptcy
Why can't you see
It's not about spending money?
We just need a Christmas party

It's getting harder to be Santa Claus
You want for things that can't be bought
Can't make a rock star, or make you famous
When did greed get so contagious?
It's getting harder to be Santa Claus

It's getting bad
It's getting real bad
Photoshop the goose
So he doesn't look so fat
It's getting harder to be...

(Ch)

Cut up those credit cards
And make some decorations
Turn off the X Factor
Put on Christmas Vacation
We need to unwind
Break out the mulled wine
Forget that waistline
It's turkey time

It's getting harder to be me
And to be jolly
No one knows what a figgy pudding is
And their Christmas lists
Are pushing me close to bankruptcy
Why can't you see
It's not about spending more money?
We just need our friends and family
We just need a star on our tree
We just need a Christmas party
