about

This song takes a welcome departure from the cookie cutter Christmas carol. The single was a first time collaboration with go-to indie producer Dean Watson of Gallery Recording Studio in Ottawa. The ambient guitar soundscapes crafted by Watson coupled with Cottreau’s soothing vocals and comically candid lyrics will surely help take the edge off during this “holiday” season.

lyrics

Almost Christmas

It’s almost Christmas time again
They say it’s the best time of year
Now I don’t know if I agree
My heart is set upon Spring

I don’t like waiting in line
Even when I have the time
Should a home and just pulled out the keys
And bought all this stuff on line

FA LA LA LA LA LA who needs this stuff anyway
FA LA LA LA LA LA next year I’ll stay home and bake

And I won’t make it to Time Square
I’ll stay in my underwear
Singing loudly and proudly and badly amen
With my girl Celine Dion, we’ll sing

OH OH OH OLD LANG SYNE who is that girl anyway
OH OH OH OLD LANG SYNE now why they gotta call a girl old.

It’s almost Christmas time again
They say it’s the best time of year
Now I know no I don’t agree
My heart is set upon Spring
