Rebecca looked up at me and she said suddenly
“For Christmas I want you to write me a song”
Well I picked up my jaw then I hemmed and I hawed
She said “You have to say yes, ’cause it’s all that I want”

She said “Write me a song about
Write me a song about
Write me a song about

About my reindeer-snowflake Christmas socks”
About her reindeer-snowflake Christmas socks?

Now Rebecca’s a friend so I should not descend
To puns like “I want your socks” or “socks appeal”
No, that would be wrong! So I’ve got to be strong
I’ve got to toe the line and not be a heel

And still write a song about
Still write a song about
Still write a song about

About her reindeer-snowflake Christmas socks
About her reindeer-snowflake Christmas socks

They’re soft and fuzzy
Warm and cozy
Comforting, protective
Casual, yet festive

They’re rad, they’re fly, they’re stylin’
When she’s blue they get her smilin’
They’re fashionably well outside the box-

Wrote this song in one day, couldn’t play it right away
She was helping a German girl buy lingerie
Couldn’t think of the name of that thing round the waist
With the straps and the hooks to keep stockings in place

Which, confidentially,
I always thought looked more
Silly than sexy – I’d much rather see
