The Lyrics

he's finally leaving...that's OK
he said my christmas wild time had just begun
i guess i'm kinda scared, you bet...its almost one
and i may have a change of heart

marley's ghost doomed my slumber
and he said, "you'll see some body else
blow 'em off ?...detrimental to your health"
marley's ghost doomed my slumber
cold as stone, he slowly moaned
"you'll live longer if you act better", the man intoned

"i have three friends around...they know your name
they will be arriving...before you know
you will go outside and feel shame....apropos
and you may have a change of heart"

marley's ghost doomed my slumber
chains around his body...loud as hell
couldn't be any deader...and he smelled
marley's ghost doomed my slumber
shakin' bones, i'm prone to own
an illusion ?...no, i know better...my mind is blown

i tell myself i'm not unkind
but maybe i don't know my mind
and i could have a change of heart

marley's ghost doomed my slumber
marley's ghost doomed my slumber
marley's ghost doomed my slumber
