  • This snowman is shaping up to be an eight but not out of ten
    The robots awake to find that they've been taped down
    Wondering when they break though these chains
    But little boys have action toys for brains

    I'm living proof, it can last a long time, now the girls up
    The street are innocent and sweet while their all in bed
    They got their makeup and dreams of wonderland

    Sprinkled inside their heads soon they will change
    But tonight Hollywood hills never seem so strange
    Their mothers pray it will last a long time

    I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow
    I wanna relearn what I already know
    Just let me take flight dressed in red
    Through the night on a great big sled
    I wanna wish you merry Christmas
    Ho, ho, ho

    Now the boys are all grown up
    And there working their fingers to the bone
    They go around chasing them girls on the weekend
    You know they still can't be alone

    I've been raking my brain
    With thoughts of peace and love
    How on earth did we get so mixed up
    I pray to God, it don't last a long time

    I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow
    I wanna relearn what I already know
    Just let me take flight dressed in red
    Through the night on a great big sled

    I hear the sound of bells
    There's something on the roof
    I wonder what this night will bring

    I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow
    I wanna relearn what I already know
    Just let me take flight dressed in red
    Through the night on a great big sled

    I wanna wish you merry Christmas
    Can't do that
    I wanna wish you merry Christmas
    Can't do that Writer/s: Brandon Flowers, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer, Ronnie Jr. Vannucci
