Track Name: Home For Christmas (feat. Aston University Choir)
Verse 1:
Even though there's no snow to play
I gotta get home for Christmas Day
I've been here too many long days in England
I've been three hours at the airport
I've seen all the girls and now I'm bored
I wish the crazy old lady would leave me alone at the airport

Oh, I want to be so far away
Away at home on Christmas Day
Oh I want to be home

For Christmas
For Christmas
For Christmas
For Christmas

Verse 2:
Last minute shopping on Christmas Eve
The "Hallelujah" chorus and round my gran's for tea
Father Ted is on the TV right now
Drinking my Scotch on Christmas Day
Watching Christmas specials like Catherine Tate
Stephen's night, Boxing Day, wasted with my mates around town

Middle 8:
But by New Year's I want to get back again
I've had enough of Christmas once again
Track Name: Happy Christmas (Kids Are Bastards)
Verse 1:
Christmas comes around once every year
Time to be with friends and family that are so dear
Eating lots of food and drinking wine and beer
Time to keep that special someone warm and near

Happy Christmas, kids are bastards
How did they get to be so nasty?
Put them in cages, poke them with sticks
Don’t let them out till after the sixth
Happy Christmas, kids are bastards
No such thing as please or thank you
Keep your brats away from me and
Annoy someone else this holiday season

Verse 2:
Christmas is the time to be with the one you love
Time for giving presents and kisses and hugs
Listening for the bells up on your roof
Santa Clause drops down the chimney into your living room

Verse 3:
Relax in front of an open fire, eat and drink your heart’s desire
Laugh and joke with friends and family, exchange gifts till it’s time to leave
Santa Clause has brought lots of lovely things
But we still have to wait and see what New Year’s brings.
Track Name: Happy New Year (I Scored Your Ma)
Verse 1:
Should old acquaintance be forgot
Your ma will still be there
Should I get pissed on New Year’s Eve
I’ll fall off of my chair
She’ll help me up and sit me down
And empathise with me
‘Cause she’ll be pissed as an arse as well
And keep me company

Verse 2:
Started talking shite at eleven that night
As these things often go
She said your da was riding the barmaid
In the car park in the snow
Says I to her ‘Not to worry,
I’m sure we’ll have a grand time’
But I didn’t know how far I’d go
With your ma that night

Verse 3:
At twelve o’ clock she was starting to rock
When she slipped me the tongue
I never thought that with your ma
I could have such fun
An hour on we were carrying on
Back at your house
If your da had walked in
He would surely have kicked me out

Verse 4:
I shot my load and I hit the road
At two o’ clock that night
I met your da down at the gate
He had clearly got his ride
Says he to me quite angrily
‘What the fuck is this?’
Says I to him with a big fat grin
‘I’ve just scored your missus’

Verse 5:
I was staggering round Castlebar town
At four o’ clock in the morn
When I met yourself in very good health
And a glow all bright and warm
Says you to me ‘I didn’t see
Where you went earlier on?’
Says I to you ‘I thought you knew
I went and scored your ma’

Says you to me 'Oh I see
I should tell you to go to hell
And I would if I could if it wan't for the fact
That I scored your ma as well'.
