Lyrics. Liner Notes.


1. Single Version [2:23] -- Although an original Christmas song, ABBA fans will note that it's a blatant rip-off of their underrated tune "As Good As New."
2. Chipmunk Version [5:21] -- Another chipmunk version, the most dramatic so far.
3. Robot Version [3:28] -- Christmas in the future.
4. MIDI Version [2:20] -- Because everyone loves those twinkly MIDIs.
5. "I Walk the Line" [2:45] -- Recorded at Sun Studios in Memphis TN only weeks after Topher Grace recorded his karaoke single.
6. Slow Version [3:19] -- Taking it down for y'all this Christmas season.
