about

“Santa, You Owe Me”, from all-female country rock force Antigone Rising, is a witty, sassy take on getting your just desserts for doing Santa’s dirty work. In addition to sharing stages with The Rollings Stones, Aerosmith, and the Allman Brothers Band, Antigone Rising has also traveled to the Middle East as cultural ambassadors for the U.S. Embassy and founding member Kristen Ellis-Henderson was featured on the cover of Time Magazine.

The track’s lyrical sarcasm is perfectly blended with shuffling rockabilly drums, ho-ho harmonies, and a fuzzy blues-rock guitar solo that belongs on the naughty list. A welcome break from Christmas clichés, “Santa You Owe Me” is also a great portrait of the band’s smart country attitude captured on their forthcoming EP and new video, “That was the Whiskey”, co-written with Nashville song writer Lori McKenna (Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Hunter Hayes). - Vents Magazine

lyrics

Santa, You Owe Me
All the toys are wrapped so lovely
They're signed, "Love Santa"
Not Yours Truly
I do the dirty work and you get the glory
Santa, baby you owe me

I want a night at the bar drinking top shelf whiskey
wake up in the morning still feeling frisky
I want to eat myself silly without feeling guilty
Santa, you owe me that

I want to crank up the stereo in my own car
free fallin' to total eclipse of the heart
I want to busk on the streets with a full tip jar
Santa you owe me that

Santa, You Owe Me
All the toys are wrapped so lovely
They're signed, "Love Santa"
Not Yours Truly
I do the dirty work and you get the glory
Santa, baby you owe me

I want to bungee jump out of a plane with no net
RSVP to invitations with regret
I want 23 Red winning every bet
Santa, you owe me that

I want a take vacation for the rest of my life
sipping salty margaritas with my beautiful wife
I want a whole lotta naughty and a little less nice
Santa, you owe me that

Santa, You Owe Me
All the boys and girls think you're their homey
well you get all the lovin'
and I get the grief
If they only knew who the hell was stockin' the tree
Santa, You Owe ME!

TIME TO PAY UP, SANTA!

Santa, You Owe Me
These credit card bills are UGLY
they're not signed love Santa
They're signed yours truly
I'm getting so tired of bakin' your goodies
I'm not Betty Crocker you can bake your own cookies
Santa, You Owe Me

(ho, ho, you owe me...ho, ho, you owe me)

Antigone Rising New York

Antigone Rising storms into 2014 with a foot stompin' new single ("That Was The Whiskey") and a founding band member on the cover of Time Magazine (April 8, 2013 issue). When the alt-country female rockers do something, they do it big. Founding sisters Cathy and Kristen Henderson have always had the same philosophy. Play better than the boys and make sure the fans feel like part of the family. ... more
