The streets are filled with Christmas cheer
At least it's only once a year
Perfect parcels tied with perfect bows
And carols ringing in my ear

Bundled up against the cold
Lines wherever gifts are sold
Each shop window displays a Christmas scene
For everybody young and old

Icicles on eavesdrops and tinsel on the tree
But it's a green Christmas for me

Couples skating on the pond
(Couples skating on the pond)
Making angels on the lawn
(Makin' angels on the lawn)
Five red mittens drying on the rack
(Ahh)
And needles shedding Tannenbaum
(Ahh)

Red bows on the railing, snowflakes on the ground
But it's a green Christmas in this town

(Ahh)
Green, 'cause of everything I miss
(Ahh)
All this mistletoe, no kiss
(Ahh)
And with every Christmas wish
(Ahh)
There would be no greater gift
(Ahh)
Than to have this envy lift

(Fa la la la la la la la la)
Carolers are at my door
(Fa la la la la la)
Don't wanna hear them anymore
Stockings on the mantle
Snow's here everyday
But it's a green Christmas anyway

Red nose on the reindeer, tinsel on the tree
But it's a green Christmas for me
