Christmas Spirits

This song is by Sonata Arctica.

"Hey, why don't you sit down, children
Grandpa'll tell you a little story
Not so long time ago, perhaps it was even last
Christmas, who's to say
The following story took place in far north
In a beautiful place where northern lights dance
In the wintry sky and millions of stars with
Smiling moon oversee this magical play
They call this place Lapland
As you know, this is where Santa Claus lives
Together with Mrs. Santa and countless elves
And other creatures
Usually things go as planned, but one day
Somehow, one of the elves found Santa's secret
Cabin filled with Christmas spirits...
An event that almost ruined Christmas"

Undecked halls, this seems fishy
Rudolph's running down to Santa's shack
"The elves are gone! The times are busy!
"I cannot build the toys with one pair of hands"

Oh my, the empty shelves, they found the hidden
Spirits of last Christmas, "Now I see...
Fuel yer nose, we'll search the city
Those guys will drink the world a dry of Irish things"

"Run, Rudolph run, with bells and whistles
We're searching every bar and guest house"
The Santa's call they'll heed, soon wobble
In a circle round the tilted Christmas tree

"Santa, pretty please
Won't you let us have more Irish tea for
We'll be fuelled by Christmas Spirits
From this day on till the end of times"

"Why you little tea glazed monsters
These toys I see, they're not exactly for children, I believe...
You've gotta be out of your minds
These are toys of a different kind
What would you do with THIS one anyway..."
"Here's what we'll do... NOW!"

"Undo the mess, get back in the line now
Then go, build toys and a fiddle
24 days and nights in the moonlight
You'll work and here is a riddle"

"What doesn't have feet, still runs away... it's time"

"All right, back to work now"

"So once again all was well in the house of Santa
Toys were built and gifts got packed, as usual
But every now and again you may just get something...
You did not really wish for
And well, now you should have an idea why..."

"Enough with that infernal yodelling! Get to work!"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah...!"·$%/&@!"
"Oh shut up you!"

"And this, children, is when Santa learned to hide his
Christmas spirits from the elves
But you know, still, sometimes, during Christmas holidays
If you are quiet and smell really carefully
You just may find a tiny trail of Christmas spirit
In your very own home

Now, time to turn in. Go go go
Good night"
