we're gonna have a gothic christmas, that is we'll do
we're gonna have a gothic christmas, hope you'll have one too
santa's going to wear a black dress just for me and you
santa's going to grunt in latin and slay a dragon or two
rudolph, he will change his name
cuz rudolplh just sounds pretty lame
now we'll call him ragnagord, the evil reindeer overlord
his nose it shall be red no more
it will be blackened to the core
his eyes will glow an evil glow to guide the chariot through the snow
we want to wish you a gothic christmas
we want to wish you a gothic christmas
we want to wish you a gothic christmas
we want to wish you a gothic christmas
we're gonna have a gothic christmas, that is what we'll do
we're gonna have a gothic christmas, hope you have one too
we want to wish you a gothic christmas
we want to wish you a gothic christmas
we want to wish you a gothic christmas
hope you'll have a gothic christmas too

    General CommentWhat with christmas coming in just a few days time I have been listening to this. It's really good fun and I agree with you 'Achmode' the Rudolph line is great. Imagine if that was the tale of Santa and Rudolph that you grew up with!

    General CommentLimewire is your best bet...
    anyways, I laughed a little when I first heard it, but very good now. me and my GF both played this at her party. couldn't on Christmas b/c too many people were there. mainly a lot of younger kids, like in the 5-10 year range, lol

    General CommentLawl. I wonder if this song kinda parodies goth in general. Like with Santa wearing a black dress instead of just a black suit, and "grunting in Latin" made me crack up because it reminds me of E Nomine in which the vocalist does grunt in Latin.

    But of course kinda in a fun way : D

    General CommentOf course it's kind of making fun of Gothic in general, Within Temptation has always been about fun.
    and although they started out with a doom/Gothic metal feel, they never took it very serious, even now, when the band is growing bigger, they still kid around with it.
    Love them.
