Lyrics:

Shall we get an ornament?
Something that is beautiful to view.
Something that is innocent,
something to make everything brand new.

It may shine,
and spread colors on the wall.
It may chime,
and send breezes through the hall.

When this whole world is dark and tainted,
won't it be nice to have this ornament that's freshly painted?

So let's get this pretty thing.
You know, we'd better make it soon
'cause it won't be another day
before I'm howling at the moon.

You think it's time
we kept nice things around?
I think it's time--
we'll have to shop all over town.

When this whole world is dark and tainted,
won't it be nice to have this ornament that's freshly painted?

You know, we’ll have to find a hiding place.
You can’t expect the world to keep it safe.

Still dark and tainted,
freshly painted.
