Another of my all-time favorite videos from yet another band who could have REALLY blown up with more exposure!

(lyrics)
A studio apartment in a dull part of Seattle
A strand of light suspended by a thumb tack in the drywall

The restaurants are closed so are the record shops the banks, and bars, and Bartell drugs, and so's the half price book store
But the movies are always open
And I always have to open...

A repertory movie house well life is not so wonderful, for 15 soggy patrons who have no better place to be - not to mention me
I'm working for a holiday wage, my family is two time zones away, I'm supposed to call them
My vodka and snow is melting
The alcohol isn't helping...

Sometimes, you have to work on Christmas sometimes
You have to work on Christmas sometimes
You gotta work on Christmas, I doubt I'll miss this

There's an artificial tree, blinking in the lobby, sitting on the coffee table yeah!
Strangers and spare changers stand in line like poor relations at some kind of sad reunion, and I'm selling the tickets
They come in out of the weather
For Christmas alone together...

Sometimes you have to work on Christmas sometimes
You have to work on Christmas sometimes
You have to work on Christmas, I doubt I'll miss this next year

Sometimes you have to work on Christmas sometimes
You gotta work on Christmas sometimes
You have to work on Christmas, I doubt I'll miss this at all...
