Need More Time

by Lynn on December 21, 2011

With the risk of being very cliche and a bit cheesy, I give to you my latest thoughts to the tune of Jingle Bells.


Dashing through my house,

Laundry everywhere,

Crafts strewn on the floor,

Dust bunnies on the stairs,


I just need one more hour,

Maybe two or three,

To just get through my giant list,

With print I can barely see.


Oh, need more time,

Need more time,

It seems to never end.


All the chores and endless stuff,

Is there time that I can bend?


Need more time,

Need more time,

To make the madness stop.


Will I ever get it all done,

Before my brain just pops?


I thought I’d take a ride,

To pick up a few more things.

Forgot my list at home,

“Are you freakin kidding me?” I would sing.


I don’t have time for this,

Who can remember all to do?

I need another day,

Or start this one anew!


Oh, need more time,

Need more time,

It’s just never enough.


All the chores and endless tasks,

It shouldn’t be this tough.


Need more time,

Need more time,

I’m asking nicely, please.


As much as I like the Holidays,

My sanity it has seized.

    Very cute and clever.. Jingle bells will never sound the same!! PS You will find the time and on Saturday night and especially Sunday morning it will all be worth it.

  • Jessica Cherubini

    Thank you so much for this all too perfect Jingle!! Just when I thought I was losing my sanity this song (which I actually sang out loud) brought me some “whoosah” clarity!! Merry Christmas!!

  • Kathy

  • Pamela Wyatt

    It is so nice to know you aren’t the only one out there! You forgot to add in the non-stopping migraine that comes along also!!

  • mamawolfe

    Thanks for the morning giggle! I know lots of us can relate to this….I like your version much better than the ‘Batman’ one my kids sing!

  • Rosann

    Lol! Love your creative spin on Jingle Bells. :) and I’d love to finish this comment but I have a three year old on my lap shoving a Look and Find book in my face.

    lol– too funny– I’m so with you on this— now I have the song in my head :)

  • The Pepperrific Life

    For the first time in a hundred years, you got me singing a Christmas carol again :) . Your song perfectly captures the mood of the season- yes, we’re always in a mad rush because there just never seems to be enough time to do everything.

    Have a merry Christmas!
