Lyrics

Christmas in North Korea

Written By: Zac McIntyre / Zac Cataldo

Christmas in North Korea

V1
I spent some time in China
Cause that's where all the toys are made
I make toys for Santa
for all the boys and girls that behave
P1
There's a place I know
Where the Christmas lights don't glow
And the army is the only presence
V2
Kringle gave me an order
To spread joy to ALL the lands
So I hopped across the border
Sacks of toys filled up my hands
P2
But one thing I didn't know
There's one place that Santa won't go
He tried before but the great leader was unpleasant
Chorus
I spent Christmas in North Korea
They didn't have any songs
They just shot off missiles all night long
Now here I am in prison for New Years
They think I am a spy
And jolly old saint nick just flew on by
B
I'm sure Santa's somewhere trying
Working hard on my escape
Either that or he's in Hawaii
And I'm wrapped up in too much red tape
V3
Slave labor would be better
If they'd let me sing my songs of joy
So if you hear this send a letter
This elf should be home makin' toys
P3
Cause I brought my ho-ho-hos
But their Christmas spirit blows
Next year Santa should bring them all some anti-depressants
C3
ENDING
So don't Spend Christmas in North Korea
They may never let you go
Just think of me when you're under your mistletoe
