It’s Christmas morning, running down the stairs
Throwing wrapping paper ‘round without a care
It all looks fun, but when it’s time to play
Looking at the package, what does it say?
Batteries not included.
Digging through a drawer to find a Triple A
Giving up and going out to seize the day
Baking, running, singing ‘round the Christmas tree
Are all just as fun for the cousins three
Chasing dogs around and going for a walk
Sitting on the bed and taking time to talk
There is no box for these memories that reads
Batteries not included.
