Molly’s Bar and Grill


words and music by Michael J. Parker and Rick Paul

It blows in the door, then it’s mud on the floor
Oh, the snow just fits right in
With a white tree from Sears and Christmas cheer
That’s running kind of thin
Yeah, there’s mistletoe, but it’s hung too low
Besides, she’s not here
So I take a stool, pretend I’m cool
Ask Molly for a beer

Somewhere out there
Sparkling snow makes winter glow
As they ring the Christmas bells
But it’s just another wasted night
At Molly’s Bar and Grill

Molly knows the score, she’s heard it all before
Still she lets me bend her ear
While the jukebox ruins that Christmas tune
We used to love to hear
Me’n old Jim Beam sing a tired theme
Oh, I never dreamed she’d leave
Molly says, “Joe, you should let her go
Come on, it’s Christmas Eve”

Somewhere out there
Sparkling snow makes winter glow
As they ring the Christmas bells
But it’s just another wasted night
At Molly’s Bar and Grill

Now the credits roll on the TV show
“A Wonderful Life” is done
No one else is here, so I down my beer
Tell Molly I gotta run
Then she says, “Joe, where you gonna go?
Why not stay awhile?”
And suddenly, I can plainly see
What’s been hiding in her smile

Somewhere out there
Sparkling snow makes winter glow
As they ring the Christmas bells
And underneath these neon lights
There’ll be no more wasted time tonight
And we’ll dance away the chill
At Molly’s Bar and Grill

Yeah, underneath these neon lights
There’s no more wasted time tonight
As we dance away the chill
At Molly’s Bar and Grill
