Track Name: Crackers & Maracas
Where would you like to be on your Christmas Day?
Look outside through the rain at the city grey
Maybe we'll, just for once, up and fly away
Heading south to the sun where the dolphins play

Now there's crackers and there's maracas
As we party on the beach
Drink coladas under the palm leaves
Lit up like a Christmas tree
Now there's crackers and there's maracas
As we party on the beach
Drink coladas under the palm leaves
Lit up like a Christmas tree

Feel the sun, feel the sand in between your toes
Now there's too many people and too few clothes
Not a cloud in the sky, just the song of birds
So we'll dance 'til the dark in the rolling surf

Now there's crackers and there's maracas
As we party on the beach
Drink coladas under the palm leaves
Lit up like a Christmas tree
Now there's crackers and there's maracas
As we party on the beach
Drink coladas under the palm leaves
Lit up like a Christmas tree

Fly away, maybe we'll fly away
Maybe we'll fly away for Christmas Day

But it feels a bit strange to be frank with you
'Stead of turkey and sprouts eating barbecue
And they still use the same iconography
Ads with Santa and snow play in boiling heat

Now there's crackers and there's maracas
As we party on the beach
Drink coladas under the palm leaves
Lit up like a Christmas tree
Now there's crackers and there's maracas
As we party on the beach
Drink coladas under the palm leaves
Lit up like a Christmas tree

Where would you like to be on your Christmas Day?

Drink coladas under the palm leaves
Lit up like a Christmas tree
Now there's crackers and there's maracas
