Black frames to stare out
Mod lang slang to wear out
Scoff at squares in sweaters
Ho, Ho, Ho, we're so much better

Used is the new black
Downloads are the new crack
Mocking carols that we hate
Damn, it's easy being great

So to hell with Holiday romantics
December is for cynics
December is for critics
Let's get high on art supplies and hibernate
December is for cynics
Damn, it's too easy being great

I brought you a bottle of wine full
Of flowers and this vinyl
I know we both made it clear
No stupid presents this year
But snopes.com said if you play
"Strawberry Fields" the wrong way
You can hear Lennon's ghost say

(Slacol eht dellik lhad nov e.)

"I buried Paul"

So to hell with Holiday romantics
December is for cynics
December is for critics
Let's go buy some take out and hibernate
December is for cynics
Damn, it's too easy being great

So to hell with Holiday romantics
December is for cynics
December is for critics
Let's just try to sleep late and hibernate
December is for cynics
Damn, it's too easy being great

So to hell with Holiday romantics
December is for cynics
December is for critics
Let's get by on Nyquil and hibernate
December is for cynics
Damn, it's too easy being great

    General Commentright before it says "I burried Paul"
    If played backwards you hear someone say "E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals"
    refrencing to the line before it and after it, where playing a beatles record gives you a hidden message

    General Commentholidays suck.
    ha i think this is a really clever song, when you have beatles reference in your song, you know your cool.

    General CommentI think they're kind of being satirical about the whole thing. Annd I don't believe that they're saying Christmas itself is overrated... they're saying that the commercialism of it is.

    General CommentRembember the night they first played this at iMusicast. I think it's not really about commercialism or anything like how Christmas has changed, more just about how everyone gets so romantic around Christmas and you should be able to just chill.
    It's not criticizing holiday romance, he's talking to a girl about how they should just "hibernate"...yup.

    General Commenti bet u almost no1 who listens to this understands this part
    "i brought you a bottle of wine full of flowers and this vinyl
    i know we both made it clear
    no stupid presents this year
    but snopes.com said if you play
    'strawberry fields' the wrong way
    you can hear lennon's ghost say

    "i buried paul""

    and it is the best part n the song is just about how its funny that even though ull always say u wont make a big deal about the holidays and getting gifts u always end up making a big deal about it...
