lyrics

The nights are getting colder
And we're all a year older
It would be easy to give in to all the gloom

But you won't see me shed a tear
'Cause it's my favourite time of year
Of plastic tat and fake reindeer
Let's Consume! Consume! Consume!

The planet may be burning
And the temperature's concerning
And Greta says we're headed for our doom

But still we'll turn the heating up
And drink mulled wine from plastic cups
So loosen that belt buckle up
Consume! Consume! Consume!

And it wouldn't be the same without
The plastic toys and games
And all the tacky just wear once festive costumes

So give a cheer for old Saint Nick
The patron saint of buying shit
Your credit card can take the hit
Consume! Consume! Consume!

So get in line at Argos
And you'd better get the right stuff
Or the kids will take to Twitter to complain

Under the tree is heaving
With things that you don't need
But pile on and we will try to make some room

Forget about your money fears
Avoid the tantrums and the tears
You'll do it all again next year
Consume! Consume! Consume!
