“House of Broken Gingerbread” Lyrics

Fa la-la, fa-la la-la la
Fa la-la, fa-la la-la la

Two mountains of presents
Two glittering trees
Both frosted in tinsel
And blue LEDs
Two platters of cookies
And peppermint bark
Two baby messiahs
Aglow in the dark

Two decks of UNO
And two sets of Clue
There’s double the Christmas
But I’m torn in two

In the house of broken gingerbread
Butterscotch and candy cigarettes
Sugar snow on the flowerbed
At the house of (House of) broken gingerbread

Fa la-la, fa-la la-la la, oh yeah
Fa la-la, fa-la la-la la

And there they go sledding
Here there’s a pool
The boyfriend’s a dentist
The stepmom is cool
Dad gave me a brother
Mom promised a dog
And one of those French cakes
Disguised as a log

Two-hearted Christmas
Half-hearted day
St. Nick and the wise men
Got lost on the way

To the house of broken gingerbread
Butterscotch and candy cigarettes
Sugar snow on the flowerbed
At the house of (House of) broken gingerbread

[break]

Mistletoe is hanging by a thread
And the mystic toys just shake their heads
Stockings hung up and full of dread
At the house of (House of) broken gingerbread
