  • Out on the third planet closest to the sun
    There's a special celebration
    And it sounds quite fun
    A jolly old fellow brings toys to everyone
    On a holiday they call Christmas
    Now I'm not gonna lie
    It makes no sense to me
    But here's what Earthlings told me
    About this Christmas mystery

    (One, two, three four)

    Santa is a furry freak
    With epic super powers
    He flies to every human home
    In under fourteen hours
    He's a master burglar
    A pro at picking locks
    If you don't leave milk and cookies out
    He will put dung in your socks

    If you act nicely through the night
    And don't jump on your bed
    Santa comes with sugar plums
    And hurls them at your head
    But if you're on his naughty list
    He shoots missiles at your toes
    He might just roast your chestnuts
    With his powerful flamethrower

    Rein, rein, rein, rein, rein
    Deer, deer, deer, deer, deer
    I don't know what Christmas is
    But Christmastime is here

    He's compelled his creepy elves
    To do his every wish
    One sought to be a dentist
    Now he's sleeping with the fish
    Mrs. Claus, she works the pole
    Plans her man's demise
    Soon the elves will all rise up
    And stab out Santa's eyes

    Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho
    Earthlings are so weird
    I don't know what Christmas is
    But Christmastime is here

    Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho
    Earthlings are so weird
    I don't know what Christmas is
    But Christmastime is here

    What the heck's a turtle dove
    And who lit up that deer?
    I don't know what Christmas is
    But Christmastime is here
    I don't know what Christmas is
    But Christmastime is here

    Or maybe it's there
    Or it's somewhere
    I don't know, I don't know Writer/s: James Gunn, Stewart Ransom Miller
