lyrics

Skating on Thin Ice
Clare Teal & Amanda Field

One Christmas night I met you and you swept me off my feet
And you threw my foolish heart into a spin
You’re still sweepin’ and a spinnin’ every other girl you meet
And your lame excuse is driving me to gin
Oh yes the ice you’re skating on is getting thin

Your “I’m just friendly at parties” tune
Ain’t gonna cut it no more
If your befriending don’t start ending any time soon
I’m gonna have to show you the door

You’re pretty free with that mistletoe
My funny valentine
Well you can kiss my sweet - lips for the very last time
And shove that mistletoe where the sun ain’t gonna shine
Slow down babe – you’re skating on thin ice

Your interest in stockings isn’t healthy
Whether they be Christmassy or not
And if the stockings – if they happen to be wealthy
Well your interest it doubles on the spot

Our relationship is a pantomime
No longer a tour de force
If you’d ever bothered to marry me I’d ask for a divorce
Prince charming wouldn’t treat me like the back end of a horse
Slow down babe – you’re skating on thin ice


Your behaviour causes great embarrassment
The way you throw yourself at other girls
In fact I’d say it’s bordering on harassment
I have to walk away before my toes begin to curl







The advent of your latest yuletide antics
Have left my friends and family aghast
And so whilst others yearn for poets and romantics
I’m dealing with the ghost of Christmas past

One night I’ll glance at the window pane
And what is this I’ll see
Your jealous green-eyed chilly face just staring back at me
Well Ho Ho Ho I’ve given Santa’s little friend your key
That’s what comes - of skating on thin ice

Too many nights alone I’ve trimmed the Christmas Tree
It’s taken three wise men to learn it’s time to set you free
You might’ve knocked the stuffing - but you can’t take the Christmas out of me
