about

This is a parody of I'm Gettin' Nuttin' for Christmas. Enjoy.

Reed Wolcott got his start as the vocalist and guitarist for Detroit, MI-based ska-punk band We Are The Union. His solo project might be an AC/DC cover band. It also might not. Here's his first song, you decide!

lyrics

I’m working retail for Christmas
Kids screaming, parents get mad
I’m working retail for Christmas
Suddenly hell don’t seem so bad

Camp outside storefronts for weeks
Gotta buy cool new things
Time to replace last year’s TV
Gotta buy cool new things

Shopping cart slams into me
No time for apologies
I’m a person with feelings
Dude, just say “excuse me”

I’m working retail for Christmas
Whole world has been zombified
I’m working retail for Christmas
Lost in a sea of dead eyes

Fistfight over parking space
Gotta buy cool new things
Shopping trip turns to arms race
Gotta buy cool new things

Stop reaching over me
I’ll gladly move if you just say “please”
Consume, stress out, spend money
Gotta buy cool new things

I wonder how I got here
Then it hits me
I should have sung about parties and friends
Instead of “1-2-3
Pick it up pick it up”

I’m working retail for Christmas
Bank account empty and sad
I’m working retail for Christmas
Cause I play in a ska-punk band
