It’s 4pm on Christmas eve
I don’t have time to shop
I wonder if stores open late if I say I’m a cop
I’ve got twine and wood to make a decoration for the tree
I’ve got time, till Christmas day

It’s 8pm on Christmas eve
I’m waiting by the phone
My friend said that he had a few things lying round his home
I could clean them good and wrap them up, no one would ever know
And there’s still time till Christmas day

It’s midnight and I’m sneaking round
the house so no one hears
My girl won’t know if I rewrap gifts from the last few years
If I show enough excitement and I make a lot of noise
I’ll get by on Christmas day

It’s 8am on Christmas day
They’re knocking on my door
They don’t know that I’ve stepped outside to the convenience store
I’ve got chocolates, I’ve got magazines and a fancy lighter too
I guess its time for Christmas day

It’s present time on Christmas day
There’s one more gift to get
I know that I can find it in the liquor cabinet
With a corkscrew and a coaster I can make a lovely set
‘cause there’s no time till Christmas day

It’s Christmas night and everyone has gone up to their bed
I’m sitting by the fire going over what they said
About love and joy and hope and peace and to see me and to smile
Its all they want, on Christmas Day
