LYRICS:

The holidays are a time to be happy

Enjoy wherever is home

At least that’s what I hear from friends and fam’ly

As I watch Christmas movies alone…


It’s weird when the tree is just for me

And carols sound diff’rent when they’re solos

It’s not as fun when you’re the only one

Chatting with distracted friends on video

I’ll sit and stare at the TV screen

‘Cause it’s Christmas

Christmas in quarantine


This season is a time to be sappy

Guess I’ll talk with this snowman

Can’t even sit on Santa’s lap, gee

This Christmas is going to blow, man


It’s weird when the tree is just for me

And carols sound diff’rent when they’re solos

It’s not as fun when you’re the only one

Chatting with distracted friends on video

I’ll sit and stare at the TV screen

‘Cause it’s Christmas

Christmas in quarantine

Christmas could be white or it could be green

Either way, it’s blue

It all seems gray when you’re in quarantine

Stopping me from seeing you


It’s weird when the tree is just for me

And carols sound diff’rent when they’re solos

It’s not as fun when you’re the only one

Chatting with distracted friends on video

I’ll sit and stare at the TV screen

‘Cause it’s Christmas

Christmas in quarantine

‘Cause it’s Christmas

Christmas in quarantine
