the girl with the holiday smile lyrics – lyle lovett

the girl with the holiday smile

i met a hooker at the grocery store
she wasn’t bad lookin’, she was a pretty little wh*r*
whoa-o-whoa, she’s the girl with the holiday smile

she told me: “merry christmas and peace to you”
she said “i’ve been workin’ this whole night through.”
she said “whoa-o-whoa, i’m the girl with the holiday smile”

she told me “whoa my whoa me, i look so good beneath a christmas tree”
she said “whoa-o-whoa, i’m the girl with the holiday smile”

she told me “christmas brings out the best in me”
she said “my heart’s so full of love and generosity”
“whoa-o-whoa, i’m the girl with the holiday smile”

and “well the police here and the police there
“they ruin my christmas spirit everywhere i go.”
“whoa-o-whoa, i’m the girl with the holiday smile”

she told me “whoa my whoa me, i look so good beneath a christmas tree”
she said “whoa-o-whoa, i’m the girl with the holiday smile”

well she told me “goodbye” as she walked away
she said “son, if you’re good maybe on christmas day”
whoa-o-whoa…

i said “whoa my whoa me, she looks so good beneath my christmas tree”
whoa-o-whoa, she’s the girl with the holiday…

i met a hooker at the grocery store
she wasn’t bad lookin’, she was a pretty little wh*r*
whoa-o-whoa, she’s the girl with the holiday..
well lord lord, she’s the girl with the holiday…
whoa-o-whoa, she’s the girl with the holiday..

silent night shining so bright
she ain’t holy but she can hold me tight

whoa-o-whoa, she’s the girl with the holiday…
