  • Santa Clause at every corner,as he braves the winter night.
    Bells are ringing in his left hand,and a bottle in his right.
    Look around you , It's Christmas Time

    Christmas trees are made of plastic,standing bare at every door.
    We will deck the halls with holly,if we make it off the floor.
    Look around you , It's Christmas Time

    Father's celebrating Christmas with a bottle full of rum,
    While his children wait for presents that they know will never come.
    Look around you , It's Christmas Time

    One-armed beggar selling pencils,but we cannot spare a dime.
    Save it for the parking meter,or we'll have to pay a fine.
    Look around you , It's Christmas Time

    All the churches filled with nothing,'cept the quiet of the night.
    Doesn't anyone remember why we celebrate tonight?
    Look around you , It's Christmas Time
    Look around you , It's Christmas Time Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
