Santa baby, just slip a Charlie Card under the tree for me

Been an awful year

Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.


Santa baby, whisper “better transit for you,”

Red/Blue Connector would be so cool
Santa baby, please hurry down the chimney tonight.


Think of all the trips I’ve missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed
(I’m pissed)
Next year, it could be even worse
If you cut back on service that would be so perverse –


Santa honey, I want to ride a Better Bus – don’t fuss

And maybe BRT

Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.


Santa sweetie, how about some Regional Rail – don’t fail

To get this moving right along

Santa baby, I hope you get the point of this song.

Santa baby, please send me some better news –

You can choose to help me shake the blues

Santa baby, it’s time to reimagine the T.

It could be the mode of choice
It could be better than a big Rolls Royce
Next year we could all be getting back
We’ve got to keep the transit system on the right track –
