about

HOLIDAY FUNK SINGLE: The Love Markets bring decadence, absurdity, and irresistible funk to the tragically brief life of a pimped-out Christmas tree. Shine on, little Tannenbaum!

lyrics

O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, wie treu sind deine blatter
Du grunst nicht nur zu sommerzeit
Nein auch im Winter wenn es schneit
O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, wie treu sind deine blatter

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Why you got to be so Christmas-y?
With your sap so sticky and your needles so phat,
Why you got to be so evergreen like that?
With your bright bright star and your leaves so fine
I'm gonna get you, tree, I'm gonna make you mine
Get your ass all tinsel in my house so small
It's a motherfunkin' cabaret tree, y'all

Yeah, yeah, break it on down
Yeah yeah break it on down
Yeah, yeah, break it on down
Ooh my Tannenbaum

When your time is up and the Yule’s no more
You’re goin’ out on the street like a used-up whore
Yeah, the same cold fate as the tree before
But you’re a Tannenbaum, girl, and you know the score
So let’s seize the day while you still look boss
Before you start to shed and I get real cross)
I can turn you on, little Christmas tree
And you can Tannenbaum all over me

Yeah, yeah, break it on down
Yeah yeah break it on down
Yeah, yeah, break it on down
Ooh my Tannenbaum
