The tree is sacred in my mind
I’m searching for a Christmas tree
It’s early, yes I know
We’re at the end of February
And there could be some snow

But now’s the time to get a tree
It’s when you get a deal
In fact this is a buyer’s market
I could get me a steal

Christmas is ten months away
But I could use it bad
Things have not been good for me
In fact, they’re rather sad

So I could use some cheering up
To cure me of this funk
I got all of my Christmas lights
Out of that basement trunk

Hey, Christmas is a frame of mind
It’s happiness and cheer
I’d celebrate it every day
And not just once a year

The tree is sacred in my mind
You know that’s how I feel
It is the symbol that I love
And so it must be real

So now I need to find a tree
I’d like one six feet tall
With lots of branches sticking out
Don’t give me one too small

It’s gonna take ‘bout seven trees
‘Til Christmas time is here
Or maybe even eight or nine
To get me through the year

I’ll have to start my own tree farm
And save myself a ton
… Oh hell, I’ll just break down and buy
An artificial one
