about

The holiday-themed song was written 15 years ago for a compilation, but it was recorded very haphazardly back then. So, in the spirit of our re-dedication to the band in the last few years, we wanted to give it a new and better life. We always felt dubious about the fact that Rob had to play a drum machine for the hastily done recording the first time around, so we fixed the problem DeLorean-style.

lyrics

ONLY ONE WAY TO GO AND YOU'VE GOT IT BLOCKED.
DOING 40 IN A 70, YOU'RE GONNA GET ROCKED.
I SEE NO SIGNS OF THE DAY THAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR....
NO BOUGHS OF HOLLY IN THE HALLS
AND NO CAROLS ON THE RADIO.

IN THE SPIRIT NOW
THINK OF YOUR FELLOW MAN.
EVERYBODY'S IN A HURRY
AND YOU'RE CAUSING A JAM.
I'M AFRAID THAT THE SNOW IS A PHASE AWAY....
THERE'S A TIME WHEN YOU TAKE IT ALL SLOW,
BUT IT'S NOT TODAY.

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR?
IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR?
GO HOME AND HANG A WREATH ON YOUR DOOR!
IS THAT THE REASON WE WAIT?

SHOULD I JUST CELL PHONE YOU THE NEWS?
THERE ARE FOUR LANES FROM WHICH TO CHOOSE!
WE'RE OUT ON THE STREETS WITH TIME TO LOSE,
AND YOU'RE WAITING ON CHIRSTMAS!

....AND IF YOU'RE LOOKIN FOR THE PRETTY LIGHTS,
I WOULDN'T HOLD MY BREATH FOR A HUNDRED NIGHTS.
COME OUT WHEN IT'S RIGHT TO TAKE THE SLEIGH FOR A RIDE,
WHEN THE REINDEER ARE READY, KRINGLE!
NOW JUST PULL ASIDE!

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR?
IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR?
GO HOME AND HANG A WREATH ON YOUR DOOR!
IS THAT THE REASON WE WAIT?

SHOULD I JUST CELL PHONE YOU THE NEWS?
THERE ARE FOUR LANES FROM WHICH TO CHOOSE.
WE'RE OUT ON THE STREETS WITH TIME TO LOSE,
AND YOU'RE WAITING ON CHIRSTMAS!
I'M LATE AGAIN
AND I'M FORCED TO PAY.
YOU'VE MADE IT CLEAR THAT YOU'VE GOT ALL DAY,
BUT IF YOU COULD GET OUT OF MY WAY
WHILE YOU'RE WAITING ON CHRISTMAS!

IF YOU CAN'T GET IT INTO YOUR MIND,
WE FADE TO BLACK AND WE WAKE UP TO FIND
YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO WAIT SO LONG
TO HEAR THE ANGEL'S SONG!

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR?
IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR?
GO HOME AND HANG A WREATH ON YOUR DOOR!
IS THAT THE REASON WE WAIT?

SHOULD I JUST CELL PHONE YOU THE NEWS?
THERE ARE FOUR LANES FROM WHICH TO CHOOSE.
WE'RE OUT ON THE STREETS WITH TIME TO LOSE,
AND YOU'RE WAITING ON CHIRSTMAS!
I'M LATE AGAIN
AND I'M FORCED TO PAY.
YOU'VE MADE IT CLEAR THAT YOU'VE GOT ALL DAY,
BUT IF YOU COULD GET OUT OF MY WAY
WHILE YOU'RE WAITING ON CHRISTMAS!
