Were You Born on Christmas Day?



This song makes me smile from beginning to end ...

SAINT ETIENNE
"I Was Born on Christmas Day"

[intro:]
[laughs] roll the tape!

[sarah:] spent the summer holed up in a room. /
[tim:] looking pretty, won't you be here soon? /
[sarah:] eurodisney, could not work at all /
[both:] a little bird had told me in the fall. /
Getting groovy after hallowe'en, /
Mid-november, got back on the scene. /
I'm so glad that I just got my pay! /
I was born on christmas day. /

[tim:] in december, my heart's full of spring. /
[sarah:] I could phone you, tell you everything, /
[tim:] like the crazy evenings on the yacht; /
[both:] tim and sarah went and tied the knot! /
Did you know they pulled the town hall down? /
I don't think you'll recognise this town. /
Never could have been a tennis wife, /
Get into the acting life. /

Getting groovy after hallowe'en, /
Mid-november, got back on the scene. /
I'm so glad that I just got my pay! /
I was born on christmas day. /
I was born on christmas day. /
I was born on christmas day.
