about

On the day before the day before Christmas
There's a friend of a friend of a friend
With a ride to the train to the airport
With the gifts you'd forgotten to send

You've never been so good at all this hurry-up-and-wait
And you almost miss your flights while online shopping at the gate

Merry Christmas to everyone
Who's joining us at Gate 30 tonight
And Happy Holidays too

There's a line for the line for the airplane
There's a sports team and some kind of band
You look in your bag for your ticket
It's always been right in your hand

And they're trying to explain why there might be a delay
You never could be worried about time on holidays

Merry Christmas to everyone
Who's joining us at Gate 30 tonight
And Happy Holidays too

The pilot's got a music chip in his tie
And he's making it sing "Deck the Halls"
It's somebody's very first airplane ride
She makes a lot of noise for being so small

On the day before the day after New Year's
To the plane from the gate from the car
You text your goodbyes as you're boarding
And they're trying to check your guitar

And it's not so very festive, riding airplanes all alone
But it's the only way of celebrating that you've known

Merry Christmas to everyone
Who's joining us at Gate 30 tonight
And Happy Holidays too
