"Making Christmas" as written by and Danny Elfman....
This time, this time, making Christmas, making Christmas
Making Christmas, making Christmas, making Christmas is so fine
It's ours this time and won't the children be surprised?
It's ours this time

Making Christmas, making Christmas, making Christmas
Time to give them something fun
They'll talk about for years to come
Let's have a cheer from everyone, it's time to party

Making Christmas, making Christmas
Snakes and mice get wrapped up so nice
With spider legs and pretty bows
It's ours this time

All together that and this
With all are tricks we're making Christmastime, here comes Jack
I don't believe what's happening to me
My hopes, my dreams, my fantasies

Won't they be impressed, I am a genius?
See how I transformed this old rat into a most delightful hat
My compliments from me to you on this your most intriguing hat
Consider thought this substitute, a bat in place of this old rat

No, no, no, now that's all wrong
This thing will never make a present
It's been dead for much too long
Try something fresher, something pleasant
Try again, don't give up

All together, this and that
With all our tricks we're making Christmastime

This time, this time, making Christmas, making Christmas
La, la, la, it's almost here and we can't wait
So ring the bells and celebrate 'cause when the full moon starts to climb
We'll all sing out it's Christmastime

    General CommentA Cover Song Of Danny Elfman's "Making Christmas" featured on the movie "Nightmare Before Christmas",appeared on the album Nightmare Revisited as track 11,and probably one of the best cover songs in the album as well.

    As far as I'm concerned,Rise Against covered this song real well,especially with Tim's angry,insane-like voice in the bridge and ending,great job...xD

    General CommentI agree that this song is retarded, but I like how Rise Against did it. They're such a great band, but they're always so businesslike, it's really cool how they dont take themselves so seriously that they cant do shit like this. Their version sounds like it could have been an AFI song.
