from by Ah, Venice



I was asked to write a song about Christmas in Switzerland but did not do any research at all.


If I lived in Switzerland I wouldn't celebrate Christmas,
I'd have maypole day. It'd be kinda lame.
But it might not be so bad if I had never had
home sweet home Christmas.

If I lived in Switzerland I wouldn't speak English so well
but I'd speak sweet German in sweet conversation
and I'd speak French too and I'd tell you joyeux noel.

If I lived in Switzerland I'd be totally into science,
don't need a reindeer rider, got a hadron collider,
got a sweet invention... Geneva convention? Merry christmas.

If I lived in Switzerland I'd have happy holidays
it'd be so exciting, with festive cheese or something,
watches and banks, and army shanks... Merry Christmas.
