  • Lyrics
  • Sitting here on Christmas Eve with a brandy in my hand
    Oh I've had a few too many and it's getting hard to stand
    I keep hearing noises from my fireplace
    I must be going crazy or the brandy's won the race

    And I keep hearing ho ho ho, guess who's here
    Your fat and jolly friend draws near
    Ho ho ho, surprise, surprise
    The bearded weirdy's just arrived

    Ho ho ho, guess who's here
    Your fat and jolly friend draws near
    Ho ho ho, surprise surprise
    The bearded wierdy's just arrived

    On my roof there's snorting sounds, and bells inside my head
    My vision's blurred with color, and all he sees is red
    There's a pair of large sized wellies coming down my flue
    And the smell of burning rubber, oh is filling up the roomWriter/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
