verse 1
I'm swiping left and right before Christmas night
typin up messages no end in sight
(she got three pictures and an overbite
and the way she write, well she ain't bright!)

ah what the heck have an in-person view
she got cute frecks and her texts are blue
(that means iMessage and an iPhone too)
give me twenty minutes know what I'll do

I'll meet her on the Ave in my Rav
light the tree, see Santa, have a laugh
getting stopped by kids for my autograph
happy hour Til 7, so my tab is half

Santa saying ho (got me thinking it's a message) can't pretend to know but I'm cautious bout the wreckage
double deck perspective, check my prime directive>
not tryina make mistakes cause things are kinda festive

Matching with the ladies on that dating app
she acting kinda shady (it's a trap)
mashed taters with the gravy, ham is on the map>
Christmas dinner plans with her fam (it's a trap)

verse 2
Christmas Eve got that liturgy
incense and smoke, holy mysteries
(who takes a first date out to a church?)
I do fool, that's just how I work

get out the church we gowin get some grub
look for tacos with a spicy rub
al pastor, (now you're in troub)
turn tako cheena to an impromptu club

it's Christmas on the dance floor you know I'm acting tough
all them little gangsters gotta show me love
pranksters and drankers in fluffed ear muffs
(do right by baby Jesus don't use fisticuffs)

things were going great but she started getting weird
she was pulling at my fingers, tugging on my beard
she bit me on my haunches, said "here's the thing
you've seduced the fairest maid of the mountain king"
