{ lyrics }

When the leaves have fallen from the shiverin' trees
And we're wearin' long johns under our dungarees
I wanna be outside knee-deep in the snow
Buildin' a house fit for an Eskimo

Or playin' football with the neighborhood boys
You know, the ones with all the really good toys
You'll have fun shoppin' for my fishin' gear
I want another tomboy Christmas this year

Now, there's no dolls or dresses down on my list
Just put a brand new baseball glove up to my wrist
Maybe that train caboose to complete my set
You know I ain't met a Matchbox car I ain't loved yet

Been doin' chores almost every day
Oh I've been haulin' wood and puttin' dishes away
Been bein' good since I don't know when
It's another tomboy Christmas again

I'm hearin' tools a-clangin' down in Daddy's shop
On t.v., Clydesdales are goin' cloppity-clop
We're makin' garland hear it go poppity-pop
("Dah who dor-aze, Dah who dor-aze!")

Now, Mom and Dad communicate with elves
I'm thankin' good St. Nick they let me be myself
When, what to my wonderin' eyes should appear,
I got a matte black Huffy two-seater!
It's another tomboy Christmas.

{end lyrics}
