lyrics

Take that clock down off the wall and set its hands for bedtime,
lace our coffee with some rum until we get the fire started,
'cos we know it's going to be a cold, cold Christmas.

And a wee boy on the TV, who reminds me of a young me,
counts the days 'til Christmas, as The Smiths sing in the background
for once in my life please let me get what I want.

I understand his patience, if it's worth having its worth waiting,
but then I realise it's an advert, so I flick over the channel.
And you say to me it's good to see a little bit of warmth left at Christmas.

I say no, it's just TV; we really should just turn it off.
You say no, 'cos I love TV. Plus we argue when we talk.

How many rules will be break?
How many times will we smile and it be fake?
How many glasses clink and how many times is it bad to think,
our love's looking a lot like Christmas?
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

I don't believe in Santa or his elves that make the toys,
but I wish they'd come and visit to distract me from this noise.
They could bring their friends and we could pretend that the footprints in the snow were real.
Because charades is getting boring and there's nothing worse than knowing,
that I let you down at Christmas, so tonight I'll hit the drunktank,
and tomorrow, me and whisky-breath, we'll find some mistletoe and say to you...

Merry Christmas. Can we please turn it off?
You'll say yeah sure fine why not it's Christmas?
What better time to talk.

How many rules will be break?
How many times will we smile and it be fake?
How many glasses clink and how many times is it bad to think,
our love's looking a lot like Christmas?
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Our love's ended up like Christmas.
