about

This was the first song we ever wrote and recorded together, for a charity Christmas compilation 2 years ago, before we had any idea that Flora would become her own identity. Happy Christmas!

lyrics

Tick tock tick tock, counting down the seconds to
6 o’ clock when you can open your eyes and see
What you’ve got
Have you seen what you’ve got yet?

Come downstairs, I am in the kitchen
We’ll open presents when I’ve got a minute
You grab a board and knife, get to chopping
I’ll get the potatoes on and start the stuffing

So much work to put one day together
So much time to keep everyone in one room

Ok, I’m done, so stoke up the fire
Pick the first box from beneath the tree
Is it for you brother? No, he’s already got one
This one’s from you, this big one must be for me

So much work to put one day together
So much time to keep everyone in one room
Throw more wrapping paper on the fire
How can you possibly be hungry again?

Oh no, we missed the queen’s speech!
And Top of the Pops is the same every year
But the Doctor’s on in just an hour
We can play more board games till then
Oh no, we forgot the crackers again
With so much going on, hard to remember everything

So much work to put one day together
So much time to keep everyone in one room
When we wake up it will all be over
We’ll be eating leftovers till New Year
Put the fairy lights away
We’ll make do without them till September
When the preparations start all over again
