Intro (palm mute)
A.1 - Dm7.1 (repeat until everybody’s ready to sing, then crescendo into...)

Verse:
A.2                            D.1           E.1  
   This year has been a little crazy for the Andersons. 
A.2                           D.1          E.1
   You may recall we had some trouble last year. 
A.2                         D.1             E.1
   The robot council had us banished to an asteroid. 
A.2                        D.1     E.1
   That hasn’t undermined our holiday cheer. 

PreChorus:
       F#m.1            F#m7M
And we know it’s almost Christmas 
         A.3                  B7
from the marks we make on the wall.
               E.1    E7           E6    E.2
And that’s our favorite time of year.

Chorus:
      A.4            Dm7.2         F#m.2
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime, 
            A7            Dmaj7
where we’re working in a mine 
              F#m.2
for our robot overlords. 
          B                     Esus4   E.3
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors. 
      D.2            Dm7.3
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

Intro
Verse:
On every corner there’s a giant metal Santa Claus
who watches over us with glowing red eyes.
They carry weapons and they know if you’ve been bad or good.
Not everybody’s good but everyone tries.

PreChorus:
And the rocks outside the airlock
exude ammonia-scented snow.
It’s like a Winter wonderland.

Chorus:
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime,
where we’re working in a mine
for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

Chorus (Theramin solo)

Verse:
That’s all the family news that we’re allowed to talk about.
We really hope you’ll come and visit us soon.
I mean we’re literally begging you to visit us.
And make it quick before they [MESSAGE REDACTED].

PreChorus:
Now it’s time for Christmas dinner --
I think the robots sent us a pie!
You know I love my Soylent Green.

Chorus:
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime,
where we’re working in a mine
for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.
