Getting Ready - Interlude

Lyricist: Kacey Musgraves    Composer: Kacey Musgraves

At Christmas, I no more desire a rose than wish a snow in May's new-fangled shows
That, of course, is William Shakespeare and I have absolutely no idea what it means
But that isn't the story we're here to tell
On this arguably festive winter's evening
Kacey Musgraves is getting ready for her favorite holiday
No, not President's Day, Christmas
Unfortunately, she and her band only just got home from tour
Which didn't leave her much time to prepare
Get an assistant, Kacey, am I right?
It is Christmas Eve, after all

Guys, has anybody seen that star ornament that my nana got me?
It goes on top of the tree
Star ornament?
Yeah
What's it look like?
A star
I don't know
Okay, well if you see it, let me know
Because I gotta get ready for Christmas

The band got concerned hearing this
For it was already Christmas Eve
A day being famous for being one day before Christmas
And, clearly, Kacey had a lot to do

Alright, yeah, I know I have a lot to do, but, I mean, is anyone gonna help me?
I made that banner
Oh, "Merry Christma—"
The printer ran out of ink
Who's that?
That might be one of your guests
Okay, but it's Christmas Eve and I thought people were gonna be coming tomorrow
Somebody called, said they couldn't do tomorrow, so I invited 'em
And did you let me know this?
I literally just did?
Alright, I'm coming
