It's never too early to get into the Christmas spirit. Okay, it is (like, now, for instance—Seriously though, eggnog hasn't even come out yet!), so it's probably a good thing that The Biebs' first single off Under The Mistletoe, "Mistletoe" doesn't focus so much on gift g-i-v-i-n-g as it does on k-i-s-s-i-n-g.


Yep, the rumours are true. If his new "deep" voice hasn't tipped you off yet, the lyrics in "Mistletoe" are a big giveaway that our little Justin is growing up:


I don't wanna miss out on the holiday / But I can't stop staring at your face / I should be playing in the winter snow / But Ima be under the mistletoe


Mistletoe, eh? Lets hope Shawty Mane ate a candy cane before partaking in any "mistletoe-ing."


While listening to "Mistletoe" we couldn't help but think of some of our favorite "coming of age" anthems. Wonder if JB used any of these for inspiration:



1. Dammit - Blink 182




But everybody's gone / And I've been here for too long / To face this on my own / Well, I guess this is growing up


2. When I Grow Up (To Be A Man) - The Beach Boys



When I grow up to be a man / Will I dig the same things that turn me on as a kid? / Will I look back and say that I wish I hadn't done what I did? / Will I joke around and still dig those sounds?


3. Im Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman - Britney Spears



I'm not a girl, not yet a woman / All I need is time, a moment that is mine / While I'm in between / I'm not a girl


I feel old now. Brb, rummaging through old photo albums!
