[a Christmas song for her friends
Went to the store/Sat on Santa's lap/Asked him to bring my friends all kinds of crap/He said all you need is to write them a song/They haven't heard it yet, so don't try to sing along/So don't sing along/Monica/Monica/Have a happy Hannakah/Saw Santa Claus/He said hello to Ross/And please tell Joey Christmas will be snowy/And Rachel and Chandler/
