Coats on the Bed

Words and Music by Matthew P. Hanley (BMI) and Hartwell Littlejohn


“Coats on the Bed” is a light, jazzy holiday song. It is meant to be sung as a duet by a couple hosting a party. In the song, one of the hosts wants alone time with the other half, who disproves. Eventually, he sees that it is a blessing to have so many friends, whose coats lay on his bed.

It is a positive, mid-tempo tune.

“Coats on the Bed” was released as a Matt Hanley Christmas single, with flip-side “The Person I Have”.
