QuotesEdit

Andy: “To keep ‘Thanks For Christmas’ from warping.”

Andy: “To stop our incognito Christmas single from warping we needed a ‘B’ side. Here she blows! (Or is that sucks?) On hearing this again for the first time in ages, I was reminded that for some reason I'd sped up the voices. Maybe for that Santa's little helper vibe. Pretty good bass playing though. Ow! Jam on, he's bad, you know it, etc. Can you moonwalk in slippers?”

LyricsEdit

Countdown

Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas party time


We're so happy

We want you to be happy too

We're so happy

And we want to share the secrets of happiness with you


Grab a woman beneath the mistletoe

Kiss her lips and make her glow

No more fighting, no more fuss

Ah, it's Christmas!


Countdown

Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas party time


We're so happy

We want you to be happy too

We're so happy

And we want to share the secrets of happiness with you


Eat and drink and dance some more

Invite the whole street through your door

Sing out loud, don't swear or cuss

Ah, it's Christmas!


Countdown

Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas party time


Countdown

Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas party time


We're so happy

We want you to be happy too

We're so happy

And we want to share the secrets of happiness with you
