Track Name: The Seasonals - Christmastime in LaLa Land
Christmastime is everyone's favorite time of year
There's street parades and candy canes
And love is in the air
It's Christmastime in Lala land
Instead of snow we're playing with sand
But who's to say it's not Christmas anyway

Take my hand and come on down
I'll show you why they call it Tinsel Town
The city comes alive
When the windows light up on Rodeo Drive

And I’ll bet you Bub you've never seen
The Hollywood sign lit up red and green
We’ll climb aboard the sleigh
And then pay the valet and fly away
It's Christmastime in LaLa land
Where every elf is toned and tanned
But who's to say it's not Christmas anyway

We got lots of for the good girls and boys
There’s a virgin to meet on Olvera street
There’s a flake or out in Malibu
So deck the halls and deck em good
With boughs of holly in Hollywood

Well, it’s been a hoot having you around
On the sunny side of a Christmas town
When Christmas comes around again
We’ll take it back to Manhattan, but til then…

It's Christmastime in LaLa land
Instead of snow we're playing with sand
But who's to say it's not Christmas
Yeah who's to say it's not Christmas
Who’s to say it's not Christmas anyway
