I got you a little something to celebrate the messiahs Birth
And at the same time say I love you this many dollars worth.
Gift wrapped with “Prime” tape, around that cardboard
Even hired me a mailman for a special delivery to your front door

Other guys be talking bout going to the mall to get their shopping on
But why do that, when I sit here and get the same thing on Amazon?
Don’t have to fill up at exon, (true) don’t have to put my clothes on (true)
I can express my love for you here on my phone with my Christmas PJ’s on

That’s right girl. I got the smarts
Do all my Christmas shopping and never once pushing a shopping cart
Send a holiday greeting without the need for a greeting card
Can include a note with purchase so no need for Hallmark

Christmas wit me, my love collides with practicality
Just take that box at the door and put it under underneath the tree
A gift from me, frugality, we both will be happy I guarantee
Merry cardboard Christmas from the J to the O to the K to the E

Verse 2

Granny, I know you been waiting for a Christmas present from me
But I didn’t want to get started shopping too early
I still got 2 days, you see times have changed
Jeff Bezos done flipped the script on the Christmas shopping game

Who’s Bezos? He’s like the modern-day Saint Nicholas
he sends elf drivers out in Prime trucks with gifts for us
Just because help me, don’t mean I fail to see your worth
I’m just more efficient at celebrating the Saviors birth
