Christmas In The Sand

Album: Christmas In The Sand (2012)
  • I love Christmas in the snow
    But Christmas in the sand don't end
    I tell you that's where it's at

    Hawaiian Tropic on my skin
    A candy cane of peppermint, a hint
    Of cocoa on my lips

    It could've been the sun
    It could've been the sea
    It could've been my childhood fantasy

    I saw Santa in his bathing suit
    Tried to catch a wave, but he tried to soon
    He laughed so hard that he could barely breathe
    And washed up next to me

    He said that you look naughty
    But I'm sure you're nice
    He was soaking wet but he cracked a smile
    With a present in his hand
    He said it's Christmas in the sand

    I must have had too much to drink
    'Cause Rudolph's nose was shining green, I think
    He was playing reindeer games on me
    Santa only called him once
    But you should've seen him run so fast
    They were gone in a dash

    It could've been the sun
    It could've been the sea
    It could've been my childhood fantasy

    I saw Santa in his bathing suit
    Tried to catch a wave, but he tried to soon
    He laughed so hard that he could barely breathe
    And washed up next to me

    He said that you look naughty
    But I'm sure you're nice
    He was soaking wet but he cracked a smile
    With a present in his hand
    He said it's Christmas in the sand

    Christmas in the sand, whoa
    Christmas in the sand, whoa
    Christmas in the sand, whoa
    Christmas in the sand, whoa

    Don't need your winter coat
    Don't need your winter hat
    Just grab the one you love
    And say you're never coming back

    If you see Santa in his bathing suit
    Tried to catch a wave, but he tried to soon
    He laughed so hard that he could barely breathe
    It's what he did to me

    He said that you look naughty
    But I'm sure you're nice
    He was soaking wet but he cracked a smile
    With a present in his hand
    He said it's Christmas in the sand

    Christmas in the sand, whoa
    Christmas in the sand, whoa
    Christmas in the sand, whoa

  • Camille from Toronto, OhColbie Caillat's sound is soo sultry and easy to listen to. I live in Ohio and love a white Christmas, but this take on Christmas in the sand is very refreshing and light-hearted; my new favorite tune for the holidays. Re: the video, I totally love Colbie's swimsuit!
