October 4, 2012.

lyrics

HEY CHRISTMAS

The snow came down like an atom bomb
Like a big wet sheet, where did you come from?
The blizzard broke a rainy spell
Outside my door children yell

"It's cold out and we want to get some warm!"
Mystery! Blow the Christmas Horn.

Hey, Christmas
It's a different time of year
Hey, Christmas
There's a pine cone in my beer

The snow plow scrapes along the road
The pizza boy gets mistletoed
It's cold out
It's a different time of year
Mystery. There's a pine cone in my beer

Hey, Christmas
It's a different time of year
Hey, Christmas
There's a pine cone in my beer
Hey Christmas
I hear it round the block
Hey Christmas
I say 1, 2, 3
Let's rock

I don't see no angels
I don't hear no friends
Still it's time for Christmas
It's Christmas time again.

The blinking lights
The Jesus blimp
The tinsel guns
Frosty, the pimp
The snowman tears
The peg leg boy
The toothless elf
A special toy

It's cold out
It's a different time of year
Mystery. There's a pine cone in my beer.
