Song Author Art Mooney og Barry Gordon Performer: Joe Ward Submitted by: jonagust


I b[G]roke my[Gdim] bat on J[Am7]ohnny's h[G]ead --;
S[C]omebody sn[Cdim]itched on m[G]e.  
I h[G]id a fr[Gdim]og in sis[Am7]ter's bed[G] --;
S[C]omebody sn[Cdim]itched on m[G]e.  
I s[G]pilled some [G7]ink on M[C]ommy's [Am7]rug,    
[D7]I made T[Cdim]ommy e     [G]at a [G/F#]bug,     
[Em]Bought some [B+]gum with a [A]penny s[A7]lug --
[D7]Somebody s[Am7]nitched [D7]on m   [G]e. O[D]h,  

[G]I'm g[Am7]ettin' n[G]uttin'[Am7] for Ch[G]rist[Am7]mas. [G]    
[D7]Mom   [Am7]my and [D7]Dad   [Am7]dy are m[D]ad.  [Am7]    [G]    [Cdim]    
[G]I'm g[Am7]ettin' n[G]uttin'[Am7] for Ch[G]rist[Am7]mas, [G]    
'Cause [C]I   [C/B]ain't been [Am7]nuttin'[Cdim] but bad.

I p[G]ut a [Gdim]tack on t[Am7]eacher's [G]chair --
[C]Somebody s[Cdim]nitched on [G]me.  
I t[G]ied a [Gdim]knot in S[Am7]usie's [G]hair --
[C]Somebody s[Cdim]nitched on [G]me.  
I d[G]id a dan[G7]ce on M[C]ommy's [Am7]plants,
C[D7]limbed a[Cdim] tree and t[G]ore m[G/F#]y pants.
[Em]Filled the s[B+]ugar b[A]owl with a[A7]nts --
[D7]Somebody s[Am7]nitched [D7]on m   [G]e,   [D]so  

[G]I'm g[Am7]ettin' n[G]uttin'[Am7] for Ch[G]rist[Am7]mas. [G]    
[D7]Mom   [Am7]my and [D7]Dad   [Am7]dy are m[D]ad.  [Am7]    [G]    [Cdim]    
[G]I'm g[Am7]ettin' n[G]uttin'[Am7] for Ch[G]rist[Am7]mas, [G]    
'Cause [C]I   [C/B]ain't been [Am7]nuttin'[Cdim] but bad.

I w[G]on't be s[Gdim]eeing      [Am7]Santa C[G]laus --
[C]Somebody s[Cdim]nitched on [G]me.  
He [G]won't come [Gdim]visit      [Am7]me beca[G]use  
[C]Somebody s[Cdim]nitched on [G]me.  
Ne[G]xt year[Gdim] I'll be [Am7]going str[G]aight,
[G]Next year[G7] I'll be g[C]ood, just [Am7]wait.    
[Em]I'd start [B+]now but i[A]t's too la[A7]te --
[D7]Somebody s[Am7]nitched [D7]on m   [G]e. O[D]h,  

[G]I'm g[Am7]ettin' n[G]uttin'[Am7] for Ch[G]rist[Am7]mas. [G]    
[D7]Mom   [Am7]my and [D7]Dad   [Am7]dy are m[D]ad.  [Am7]    [G]    [Cdim]    
[G]I'm g[Am7]ettin' n[G]uttin'[Am7] for Ch[G]rist[Am7]mas, [G]    
'Cause [C]I   [C/B]ain't been [Am7]nuttin'[Cdim] but bad.

Coda:
So, you be[G]tter be [Gdim]good, what[Am7]ever you [G]do,  
'Cause i[G]f you're [G7]bad I'm [C]warning [Am7]you,    
[C]You'll get [Cdim]nuttin' [D7]for Chr[G]istmas.

I broke my bat on Johnny's head --;
Somebody snitched on me.
I hid a frog in sister's bed --;
Somebody snitched on me.
I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug,
I made Tommy eat a bug,
Bought some gum with a penny slug --
Somebody snitched on me. Oh,

I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas,
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

I put a tack on teacher's chair --
Somebody snitched on me.
I tied a knot in Susie's hair --
Somebody snitched on me.
I did a dance on Mommy's plants,
Climbed a tree and tore my pants.
Filled the sugar bowl with ants --
Somebody snitched on me, so

I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas,
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

I won't be seeing Santa Claus --
Somebody snitched on me.
He won't come visit me because
Somebody snitched on me.
Next year I'll be going straight,
Next year I'll be good, just wait.
I'd start now but it's too late --
Somebody snitched on me. Oh,

I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas,
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

Coda:
So, you better be good, whatever you do,
'Cause if you're bad I'm warning you,
You'll get nuttin' for Christmas.
