A Great Big Sled
The Killers Lyrics


This snowman is shaping up to be an eight but not out of ten
The robots awake to find that they've been taped down
Wondering when they break though these chains
But little boys have action toys for brains

I'm living proof, it can last a long time, now the girls up
The street are innocent and sweet while their all in bed
They got their makeup and dreams of wonderland

Sprinkled inside their heads soon they will change
But tonight Hollywood hills never seem so strange
Their mothers pray it will last a long time

I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow
I wanna relearn what I already know
Just let me take flight dressed in red
Through the night on a great big sled
I wanna wish you merry Christmas
Ho, ho, ho

Now the boys are all grown up
And there working their fingers to the bone
They go around chasing them girls on the weekend
You know they still can't be alone

I've been raking my brain
With thoughts of peace and love
How on earth did we get so mixed up
I pray to God, it don't last a long time

I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow
I wanna relearn what I already know
Just let me take flight dressed in red
Through the night on a great big sled

I hear the sound of bells
There's something on the roof
I wonder what this night will bring

I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow
I wanna relearn what I already know
Just let me take flight dressed in red
Through the night on a great big sled

I wanna wish you merry Christmas
Can't do that
I wanna wish you merry Christmas
Can't do that

A Christmas song that ages well, like a fine wine.

The snowman is shaping up to be an 8, but not out of 10!

Such a clever line. Love this song

rocketfish234

FManAngryAmerican lol it's just the general shape

Just SomeGuy

+FManAngryAmerican I thought the same thing

F.M. AnAngryAmerican

+WantedDeadly becuase I always thought it meant like a scale from 1-10, but it's 8 and not out of ten. so I thought it was 8/100. so I always thought that the snowman was crappie but the point was to have fun.

also don't snowmen have three balls?

Peteral

@Doggy business @***** Explained it, the number 8 looks like a snowman. So yeah, its shaping up to be an 8 but not an 8/10. Get it?

Still my favourite Christmas song after all these years

Between this and Dont Shoot me Santa I think they got the best Modern Day Xmas songs. Great band overall. Call me crazy but I put them right up there with Coldplay in my opinion.
