It's Always Going To Go Wrong At Christmas Time

by Ren Stedman



People are wishing for the snow
well I relate more to The Pogues
of how a Christmas that is white is just a lie.

And sleigh bells ringing from the sky
I’m finding money is too tight
let's give 3 cheers for being skint at Christmas time.

And at this festive time of year
we’ve got songs ringing in our ears
to congregate and spread the joy of Christmas cheer
and parents plan divorce again
their kid’s been drinking with their friends
Christmas doesn’t feel the same it did back then

so burn the turkey and drink the wine
it’s always going to go wrong at Christmas time

No, Santa didn’t bring your gifts
I stole them from the Tesco bins
along with flowers that I took from someone's grave

A midnight mass to celebrate
the birth of someone that was made
to separate us with beliefs so we’d be saved

And I, I ain't feeling jolly like saint nick
a stupid turkey ain't gonna fix
the fact I always hate this time of year.
And I, I know I've got it good compared to most
so we might as well have a toast
whilst I down another beer
