Hold Out for Christmas

Christmas' in Tokyo does not make sense
Santas and sumos don't mix
But parties are parties, lager or lite
Don't ask me why, just pass the fish

And I'll hold out for Christmas
And I'll hold onto old reindeer games
And I'll hold onto Grandma and Grandpa
Remember and make it the same

Christmas in Korea's a new one for me
You trade in your sleigh for a jeep
Instead of white Christmas, you watch CNN
And send gift-wrapped Reeboks for cheap

And tell me how will Santa Claus ever find us
I wonder if we're just too far away
But who needs Santa when you got everything on your list
Like I do, I've got you

Christmas in Bali ain't too hard to take
Blue with green moonlit clean waves
I'll have my yuletide with the lowtide
And sleep through New Year's, and have a breezin' Indonesian holiday

And I'll hold out for Christmas,
And I'll hold onto old reindeer games
I'll hold onto Grandma and Grandpa
I'll Hold onto them, hold onto love, remember and make it the same

Christmas at home is a life away
But in me its candlelight glows
I see it shine on my mother, and bright on my dad
And feel it guide me wherever I go
