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.
