lyrics

the best way to get mistletoe
is get a boat and then you go
with a shotgun shoot to the top of the trees

berries from the mistletoe
hit the deck and they grow
the boat slowly overflows with magic christmas trees

ho ho ho he he he
i've got my friends with me
ho ho ho we go
down stream

the boat starts to take shape
of a christmas tree we shake
the berries from the mistletoe turn a golden hue

ants start to crawl around
at closer look on the ground
they are really santa's elves making you some toys

ho ho ho he he he
i've got my friends with me
ho ho ho we go
down stream

the best thing about the boat
is when it stops and doesn't float
we sit around and talk about things from last year

birthdays, trips and babies born
books you read, when your clothes got torn
the christmas magic mistletoes grows here every year.

ho ho ho he he he
i've got my friends with me
ho ho ho we go
down stream
