If I am the last in line to see
Whatever that it is
That they're lining up to see
You see, it doesn't concern me

I don't much care
If I am the very last to know
Whatever that it is
That they know about, oh, no
Oh, no I really don't care to know

'Cause when it comes to Santa Claus
And presents 'round the tree
No one I know could ever get jump on me

I'm gonna be the first one
Up on Christmas morning
I'm gonna be the first one
Up on Christmas day

I've always heard that the
Early birdie catches all the worms
But worms ain't for me, no
They're not my cup of tea
And I am certainly not a birdie
Me, I'd rather sleep 'til three

'Cause when it comes to Santa Claus
And presents 'round the tree
No one I know could ever get jump on me

I'm gonna be the first one
Up on Christmas morning
I'm gonna be the first one
Up on Christmas day
