Deck the streets with Adidas running tops,

Fa la la la la la la la laaaaaaaa.
'Tis the season to be social flops.
Fa la la la la la la la laaaaa.

Don we now our neon tabbard,
Fa la, fa la la la laaaaa (la la la).
Troll the ancient Yuletide balla(r)d,
Fa la la la la la la la laa.

See! The blazing Mall before us!
Fa la la la la la la la laaa.
Thread redlaces and join the chorus,
Fa la la la la la la la la.

Follow me in merry jogging,
Fa la, fa la la la laaa (la laaa).
While I tell of Yuletide blogging,

Fa la la la la la la la laaaaaaaaa.....
