Last Christmas I Gave You Some Socks, But the Very Next Day You Gave Them Away

Last Christmas I Gave You Some Socks, But the Very Next Day You Gave Them Away December 10, 2014

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:

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.
