lyrics

It's Christmas Eve, I can't believe that we are in this mess.
A diverse cross-section of terrorists are terrorising guests
at a Christmas party full of Holly and six months of regret.
Me in NY, you in LA, I'm sorry but I can't say it yet.
Will I ever get to?

I'm still not great at taking flights, I get a little stressed.
I'm just that kind of archetype, I can't trust anyone else.
However big or small the thing, I think I know what's best.
Heavy handed, strong and silent saviour in a plain white vest.
But not quite right yet.

So I make fists (fists)
fists with my toes
I make fists (fists)
fists with my toes
I make fists (fists)
fists with my mistletoes
and kick it into Christmas mode.
I make fists (fists)
fists with my toes
I make fists (fists)
fists with my toes
I make fists (fists)
fists with my mistletoes
and punch it into Christmas mode.

Hans, put your hands up.
I was invited you are the intruder.
Hans, put your weapons down.
I am the good guy, you are the Gruber.
Karl, I'm sorry
you lost your brother but it was him or me.
I'm taking names and kicking ass here at Nakatomi.

So I make fists (fists)
fists with my toes
I make fists (fists)
fists with my toes
I make fists (fists)
fists with my mistletoes
and kick it into Christmas mode.
I make fists (fists)
fists with my toes
I make fists (fists)
fists with my toes
I make fists (fists)
fists with my mistletoes
and punch it into Christmas mode.

Now the father of five is no longer alive.
Wouldn't give up the safe to keep himself safe.
What a brave guy.
Do they have thirty-five floor high skyscrapers in the sky?
Or do they just scrape by?
