[Verse 1]
      Db           Ab
Some time ago, at Santa's place
Bbm                 Ab
Up in the old North Pole
       Ebm             Bbm
There lived a lump of anthracite
Eb                       Ab
Whose parents called him Joel

[Chorus 1]
Db               Ab
Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
Bbm                 Fm
Happy as a lump can be
   Gb                  Db
He just wants to keep Santa warm
    Gb               Ab
And make the elves cozy

[Verse 2]
     Db              Ab
But Santa Claus had other plans
     Bbm             Ab
For Joel one fateful day
Ebm                    Bbm
"Joel, you're just the lump I need
      Eb            Ab
Come join me on my sleigh”

[Chorus 2]
Db               Ab
Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
       Bbm            Fm
Heart leapt up with joy
      Gb               Db
"I'll soon be Santa's present to
   Gb           Ab
A lucky girl or boy

[Bridge 1]
       Ebm
We'll laugh and play together
    Ab
And hold each other tight
Db
Snuggle under clean white sheets
        Gb
When we go to sleep at night”
      Ebm
Then Santa's elves all laughed at Joel
        Ab
"You're in for a surprise
       Db
You're not a special Christmas gift
       Gb
You're just a booby prize
     Ebm
What kid would ever want you?
        Ab
You're filthy as can be
        Db
Now you have to go and live
     Gb
With one who's been naughty”
     Db       Gb
"But I make heat,” 
           Ab
poor Joel cried
      Am   Bbm
"And electricity”
                 Db
"You pollute the air
             Ab
With CO2 and mercury”

[Chorus 3]
Db               Ab
Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
     Bbm            Fm
Fell down upon his knees
   Gb                       Db
"I don't wanna live with a naughty kid
      Gb              Ab
Don't make me, Santa, please”

[Verse 3]
    Db                 Ab
But Santa laughed his jolly laugh
     Bbm            Ab
"Ho, ho, you stupid lump
       Ebm                Bbm
You're just the thing to teach this brat
      Eb                  Ab
That Santa ain't no chump, Ho ho ho.” 

[Verse 4]
    Db                   Ab
So off they flew and, before he knew
Bbm           Ab     
Joel was in a sack
    Ebm                Bbm
He cried and yelled to Santa Claus
     Eb               Ab
"Why don't we just go back?”

[Bridge 2]
     Ebm
And then came Christmas morning
     Ab
And, much to Joel's surprise (Much to Joel's surprise)
    Db
He saw a boy with the saddest face
    Gb
And tears were in his eyes (Tears were in his eyes)
    Ebm
He picked Joel up and held him
          Ab
And said "You can be my friend (Hey man, let's be friends)
  Db
I would've liked some presents but
             Gb
You're what Santa chose to send (Santa chose to send)
     Ebm 
It's true, I've been a naughty boy
    Ab
And maybe that's a sin (Maybe that's a sin)
    Db
If this is how Santa treats the kids
          Gb
I'm just glad that I'm not him”

[Chorus 4]
Db               Ab
Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
Bbm               Fm
Knew what he must do
         Gb              Db 
He said "Now I know the reason why 
Gb             Ab
I got sent to you

[Verse 5]
       Db            Ab
Cause when a person hurts inside
    Bbm                Ab
It turns him hard and cruel
    Ebm           Bbm
But I know how to make your pain
  Eb            Ab  
Into a precious jewel
   Db              Ab
So take me in your hand, young man
     Bbm                  Ab
And squeeze with all your might
       Ebm               Bbm
Let's turn your pain and anger
      Eb                    Ab
Into something that shines bright”

[Chorus 5]
     Db              Ab
Then Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
    Bbm            Fm
He gave his life away
    Gb               Db
So one good naughty little boy
        Gb                   Ab
Found a diamond on Christmas day

[Outro] 
Db   Ab   Bbm   Fm
Gb   Db   Gb   Ab   
Db
