Wholesome Egg Nog Blues. Why? Because Egg Nog should have it's own songs.


Wholesome Egg Nog Blues

I know the egg nog's comin'
It's comin' to the store
If I drink the last drop
I'll go and buy some more
I love that wholesome goodness
It goes down so smooth
And when I'm drinkin' egg nog
It keeps me in my groove

When I was a baby
My mama told me, Son
Don't drink too much egg nog
Or your scale will be bummed
Took a shot of liquid heaven
Now I can't deny
When that carton's empty
I hang my head and cry

The rich folks can keep
Their champagne and caviar
I'll just sip my egg nog
From Grampa's mason jar
I know the season's ending
Just how it has to be
That egg nog will be leavin'
And that's what tortures me

If it were always egg nog season
I could drink it all the time
There'd be no more waiting
Until Christmas time
I love egg nog season
That's where I want to stay
I could let that wholesome egg nog
Wash my blues away
