Having fun is fun. (: @candytman)

Before belting out the tune, John hilariously confessed, “Love the song.  I really like the song. I get a little chuckle because she says, ‘We can keep the Christmas lights up ‘til January.’ And I go, ‘You’re insane. Everyone keeps their Christmas lights up until January.'”


John then decided to sing a part of the song in front of the camera and he even changed up the lyrics:

“We can keep the Christmas lights up ‘til January / And then about January 5, we’ll take the lights down / And we’ll put ‘em in a box and we’ll label that box ‘Christmas lights’ / Yeah, we’ll put ‘em in the attic ‘til next December.”  Watch below.


In case you haven’t heard, John and Taylor used to date and it was their breakup that inspired Taylor’s song, Dear John.




During an interview with Rolling Stone, at the time John confessed, “It made me feel terrible.  It was a really lousy thing to do. I never got an email. I never got a phone call. I was really caught off guard.”
