Christmas Burgling

The Home Alone movies are a particular seasonal favourite for the team here at P&R Alarms.  While we would love to be able to install the hilarious burglar traps that Kevin does, it’s technically against the law so a burglar alarm and CCTV are your best bet for deterring break-ins over this festive season.  To get into the Christmas spirit this year we found ourselves humming the classic Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses and we came up with some alternative security themed lyrics for you to enjoy.

Bah Humbug, now that’s too strong

But this year’s been a busy blur

I’ve sorted out our security

To add to our video doorbell

We’ve got some motion sensing lights

The perfect extra for me would be

A shiny new alarm box, with police response

All day monitoring, a loud siren

To scare them off

We had one but it’s past its best

Now is the time for us to invest

So deck the halls, trim those trees

Raise up cups of Christmas cheer

I just need to catch my breath

Christmas will be safe this year

Outside’s cold, it’s warm in here

Our log burner keeps us toasty

The smoke alarm gets tested now

Gotta be safe with any home fire

Flash back to spring time, cutting the hedge

Would have been good to let it grow up

But it obscures a hiding place

Where thieves can sit and lie in wait

Now we’re trimming it back again

More light can flood inside the house

There’s nowhere here to hide and wait

It’s not a great place for a burglar to be

Now the house is real secure

Of course we are excited

Tonight’s the night we use CCTV

We’ll check the footage in the morning

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas

And I think we’ll be safest this year

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas

And I think we’ll be safest this year (repeat)

Children dashing out the door

I’m keying in the alarm code

We’re off to look at the twinkly lights

There are lots to look at in our road

Lights on and windows locked

It’s basic home security

Bundled up in coats and gloves

We’re toasty warm and extra safe

Left the radio on and the TV too

Makes it look like we’re still in there

All curtains drawn and cameras on

No-one’s stealing our stuff tonight

We’re back home now and we’re all tired

Just leaving out a mince pie

There’s only one visitor we want

And he comes with several reindeer

On Christmas morn we wake early

The kids are making snowballs

A white Christmas? No, surely

We’ve waited now for several years

So on with the boots

Out in the snow

It’s crisp and lovely out there

Our CCTV records our fun

Memories that last a whole lifetime

Spending this one safe at home

We’ve got more food than we can eat

Our home’s secure, our garden too

All in all, our castle’s pretty neat

Then suddenly we laughed and laughed

The Christmas cheer is spreading

And our home security ensures it’ll be

A very happy ending

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas

And I think we’ll be safest this year ………

We wish you Merry Christmas and a safe New Year, from all of us at P&R Alarms.
