Christmas was better in the 80's


On Christmas Eve in the 80s
My Mother would say to me
"Upstairs and go to sleep
Wake up in a dream"
Christmas, was better in the 80s
Better in the 1980s

On Christmas Day in the 80s
Everybody used to sing
"Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hal-le-lujah!"

We'd were wishing on a star (wishing on a star)
We'd were wishing on a star (wishing on a star)
We were wishing for a star (wishing on a star)

Christmas, was better in the 80s
Better in the 1980s
Christmas, was better in the 80s
Better in the 1980s
1980s

The snow was deeper in the 80s
And everybody used to play
Outside on Santa's sleigh
Living dreams and holidays
And I won't forget those tiny flashing lights
Plastics trees and snowball fights
Happy Days and Silent Nights

Christmas, was better in the 80s
Better in the 1980s
Christmas, was better in the 80s
Better in the 1980s

On Christmas Eve in the 80s
Mother would say to me
"Upstairs and go to sleep
Wake up in a dream"
Christmas, was better in the 80s
Better in the 1980s
Christmas, was better in the 80s
Better in the 1980s
1980s

On Christmas Eve in the 80s
On Christmas Eve in the 80s
