Here are the lyrics to my “The 12 (Bipolar) Days of Christmas.” I meant to publish them with the video, but I didn’t want to spoil the surprise … because you would know what’s coming next. However, I didn’t take into consideration how off-key I would be, that people really needed a cheat-sheet to get through it.

I’ve included the appropriate links so to make this a true Beyond Blue wrap-up or present for you guys!
