Everybody’s heard the George Michael hit “Last Christmas,” especially during this time of year.
Well, Brooke White and Summer Bellessa (a.k.a. The Girls with Glasses) have recorded a parody version of that song, which begins with the lyrics “Last Christmas, I gave you some socks / But the very next day you gave them away.”
If you’ve ever regifted something or scrambled to find anything around the house because someone you didn’t buy a present for has bought one for you, you’ll likely get a smile out of this video and lyrics:
Last Christmas I gave you some socks
But the very next day you gave them away.
This year, I won’t pull a gift from my rear
And I’ll pick you up something special.
Once purchased and twice received
I guess you forgot to give me the gift receipt.
Last year I got the same Snuggie from my brother
This year it looks like its going to another
(Here’s a fruit cake)
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying, ‘Sorry its fermented.’
Last year, someone dropped it off at my front door
But I’m allergic to nuts so now its gonna be yours.
This Christmas I made you some fudge
But the very next day I ate it away (ate it away).
Ashamed, I hide in my fear cause you’re on your way here
And you probably got me something special
“Hey Brooke, it’s Summer. I’m headed over, just wanted to drop off a little something special I got you for Christmas… see you soon!”
I scan my room, look for something nice.
How would you like my old hair removal device?
Oh how I wish I could blame this all on Santa
Feeling sick, wish I had some Mylanta.
I took a family picture down from my living room wall
Took the photograph out of the frame,
Pretended like I got it from the mall (the mall, the mall)
So glad that I’m not empty handed cause that was a close call
Last Christmas I gave you a frame
But I just got it back in a white elephant game (elephant game).
This year, no more embarrassing tears,
I will give you a clearance special.
Last Christmas, you gave me some socks
But the very next day I gave them away.
This year, don’t pull a gift from your rear, and pick me up something special.
Unless you’re running low on time or money,
Then well I guess I understand.
In fact, it helps me out when I don’t have anything on hand.
So, what I’m trying to say is thank you, it is special.
I’m gonna regift, I’m gonna regift
I’m gonna regift, and I hope that you think its special.
