"Hey Guys! It's Christmas Time!" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
We can walk out after dark
Because it's Christmas time
Colored lights glow from the park
Because it's Christmas time
And the bells on the reindeer sled say
It's Christmas time
And the quilts on the back of the bed say
It's Christmas time

I think about how we could run away
Now that it's Christmas time
We travel in a one-horse open sleigh
Now that it's Christmas time

There's your father with his pipe
He says it's Christmas time
He might let us stay up all night
Because it's Christmas time
I might wish you all the best
Because it's Christmas time
I might kiss you on the back of your neck
Because it's Christmas time

I think about how we could run away
Now that it's Christmas time
We travel in a one-horse open sleigh
Now that it's Christmas time

It's Christmas time

    General CommentI assume his stories are amazing. He did originally go to college for writing, did he not?

    General CommentYeah, I read somewhere that he considers himself a "failed writer". Silly Sufjan.

    I just got the Christmas album in the mail yesterday. It's great! The best eighteen bucks I'll spend this season. He has a great sense of humor and it shows in his stories.
