Christmas Eve the lights went out
That donít really help the situation
She grabbed his coat and kicked him out
Some angel had been praying for salvation
Cats donít believe in Santa Claus, spayed
And declawed
Itís not me youíre deceiving
And peace and love is all around
At this time of the season

You knew Iíd been with dirty dogs and kissed
Some frogs
You knew how I was feeling
Underneath the mistletoe and stars you know you
Set my senses reeling
In your embrace I found my place
Outside itís freezing

I will love you most of all
At this time of the season
I tracked you down to London town
Met you at the station
Kings Cross by the east coast line
Wanted to explain the situation
Duty calls with ties that bind
I know you have your reasons
We all do what we have to do
At this time of the season

I dreamed of you in Birmingham
We had no plan
Thatís what really made it
That Christmas song by Boney M
The deejay at the local station played it
You took a job in Zanzibar
I did my Christmas shopping
I thought about you all the way
On my Atlantic crossing

Spoke with you in Amsterdam
Said if we stand a chance, we should take it
The red lights and the coffee stands
Said if weíre feeling love then we should make it
Like a child I gave my heart
Now why do you have to break it?
If thereís sense inside that head of yours
Well nowís the time to wake it

Baby in a manger cries
And men whoíre wise
Well seeing is believing
No pantomime
No alibi
The joker in the pack is always dealing
If loving someone is a crime
Then strike me down
Within the spell
Iím weaving
And pair me with the circus clown
At this time of the season
