Saturday Night Live – The Christmas Candle lyrics
(feat. Emma Stone, Kate McKinnon & Aidy Bryant)

(Spoken Intro)
Everyone knows the story

Of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ

This is the story

Of another more powerful Christmas savior

(Verse 1)
The snow's falling down
It’s Christmastime again
A woman has to get a gift
For some girl at work named Jen

She doesn't know what Jen likes
And she doesn't super care
So she goes inside a closet
To see what crap’s in there

In darkness, there's a light
And suddenly she sees what Christmas savior's here tonight

(Chorus 1)
It's a candle
A peach candle
Sitting by the bike for a year
She takes the candle
Dusts off the candle
Then wraps it up for Jen and just says, "Here."

(Verse 2)
Then one day after this
In foggy London town

Two acquaintances are having tea
And one puts a present down

The other says, "Wait, what?
"I mean, I got you something, too."
Then she rummages inside her purse
For some garbage that will do
And she settles on

Something that she just had gotten from her boyfriend's mom

(Chorus 2)
It's a candle
The same peach candle
Regifted 'round the world in just one day
Oh thank you, candle
The one true candle
The candle we all get, then give away

But here's a warning:
When you give a candle, it is all that you need
Don’t pair it with a lotion or some lame little cream
A lot of people think two gifts are better than one
But that just makes each gift seem smaller and dumb

(Chorus 3)
So just give the candle
Don’t overthink the candle
It's passed to every single woman and most gays
We all get the candle
We all give the candle
That nine-dollar candle
That almost rude candle
We’re joined by the candle
It's the gift of having a gift to give away
The gift of having a gift to give away

(Spoken outro)
Thank you, candle
