lyrics

Here's the wreath from our front door - here's the Christmas lights
And here's the Christmas tree we planted some ol' Christmas night
And here's the can of gasoline I keep inside my shed
Your tinsel burns like kindling, while the smoke goes to my head

And now I'm throwing in all your Christmas cards
And I'm singing "Silent Night"
While the ashes fall on everything in sight
I'm burning down your Christmas Tree tonight

You picked the perfect time to leave - you didn't even pack
You punched a hole right through my soul with the maximum impact
And then you stuffed it with your lies, like you'd stuff a Butterball
And you salted it with all my tears, and your stupid late night calls

But now your clothes hang from the burning branches
The fire lights the night
The smell of polyester seems so right
I'm burning down your Christmas tree tonight

I'll take back the diamond ring - engraved, "To You, Love, From Me"
And trade it in for a seventy-four inch LCD TV

But now I'm melting down your plastic snowmen
That sing "Oh, Holy Night"
It's a supercalifragilistic sight
I'm burning down your Christmas tree tonight

The fire engines and the ambulances
Have such pretty lights
I know that I've done wrong, but it feels so right
I'm burning down your Christmas tree tonight

I'm burning down your Christmas tree
I can almost smell my destiny
I'm burning down your Christmas tree tonight...
Tonight...
Tonight...
