Holiday Song a la Frenchy and the Punk!

lyrics

All I want for Christmas is a time machine
to take me back to Halloween
‘cause that’s the holiday that makes sense to me
when goblins and ghouls come over for tea

You can have your Santa and your Christmas tree
I’ll take the full moon and witches 3
‘cause no amount of tinsel will make me be
as happy as Halloween

A canvas of yellow, red and orange leaves
bonfires, candy apple cinnamon treats
the veil is thin so won’t you join in
a vintage style seance and a bottle of gin

Hand over the keys and I’ll chauffeur
set the time machine back to October
throw a big party where we’d invite
Morticia, Lemmy, Lily and Dracula

Surround myself with some of my favorite things
Bats, pumpkins, chocolate and frogs with wings
We’ll make a toast and raise our glass
to a life of mystery and love

Holly and the ivy are pretty it’s true
fresh snow fall, mistletoe rendez-vous
but nothing inspires your inner vampire
like a dark Autumn night lit by lunar fire

All I want for Yuletide is a time machine
to take me back to all Hallow’s Eve
‘cause nothing is as timeless for all of us
as the feeling that life is mysterious

You can have your reindeer and your flying sleigh
I’ll be time traveling in my mind anyway
‘cause me and my friends will always be
in our eternal Halloween

All I want for Christmas is a time machine
to take me back to Halloween
‘cause that’s the holiday that makes sense to me
when goblins and ghouls come over for tea

You can have your Santa and your Christmas tree
I’ll take the full moon and witches 3
‘cause no amount of tinsel will make me be
as happy as Halloween

meet me at Halloween
rendez-vous at Halloween
Santa, please give me Halloween
