The Day After Thanksgiving

I heard this song on the radio the other day and I can only say that I wish I’d heard it last month so that I could have shared it with y’all before Thanksgiving.  Unfortunately, I didn’t hear it last month, so I wasn’t able to share it sooner…  BUT— that is not going to stop me from sharing it now!  😉

I thought this song was funny (and totally relatable).  So I hope y’all enjoy this live version of Brandon Heath singing The Day After Thanksgiving!


“The Day After Thanksgiving”

There’s still plenty of leaves
Golden on the trees
Hoodies, blue jeans, and football
Bonfires and school nights
Scarecrows and hayrides
It’s fall everywhere except the mall

I don’t want to hear about Santa Claus coming
No silver bells or a dozen drummers drumming
I don’t want to see an inflatable nothing
‘Til the day after Thanksgiving
(And not a day early)

Don’t plug in those electric candles
Or dangle those stockings from the living room mantle
Those tangled up lights are more than I can handle
‘Til the day after Thanksgiving

Then, oh, let it snow
Go and tell everyone you know
That Christmas is here
Every day between now and New Year’s

Don’t deck the halls with the tinsel or the holly
You can make me grumpy but you can’t make me jolly
Elves don’t even make curly haired dollies
‘Til the day after Thanksgiving

Then, oh, let it snow
Christmas card everyone you know
Then pour on the cheer
Every day between now and New Year’s

I want the cookies and the mistletoe kissin’
Angel on top of a tall tree glisten
Wrap it all up in a pretty red ribbon
The day after Thanksgiving

(You can dress your car up like Rudolf for all I care)
As long as its the day after Thanksgiving
