Verse 1:

The snowman is shaping up to be an eight, but not out of ten
    C5                                               G5
The robots awake to find out they've been taped down wondering when
Am
They'll break through these chains,
F                                    C
but little boys have action toys for brains
                         G
I'm living proof it can last a long time
C5
Now the girls up the street are innocent and sweet
             F5
well they're all in bed
               C5
They got their makeup and dreams of wonderland
           G5
sprinkled inside their heads
   Am                              F

Soon they will change,
    F                                        C
but tonight Hollywood Hills never seemed so strange

Their mother's praying it'll last a long time

Chorus 1:
             C             F          Em
I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow
G   Ab5 Am             F       Em
I wanna relearn what I already know
G                 F
Just let me take flight
           G               C          F     Em  Dm
dressed in red through the night on a great big sled
                       C5
I wanna wish you Merry Christmas... Ho Ho Ho

Verse 2:
        C
Now the boys are all grown up
                        F
out there working their fingers to the bone
       C
they go around chasing them girls on the weekend
                    G
you know they still can't be alone

         Am

I've been racking my brain with thoughts of peace and love
F                                C
how on Earth did we get so mixed up
                        G
