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 Pre-chorus: Oh, I want to be so far away Away at home on Christmas Day Oh I want to be home Chorus: 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
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 Chorus: 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.
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’ Epilogue: 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'.
