Track Name: Merry Xmas Mr Scrooge
It comes but once a year and you ain’t fussed
You enjoy watching people in that festive rush
The lights were lit by some minor celebrity
Like that guy who had a line on last week’s Casualty

And you’re not drawn in to all this consumer bliss
You’d rather be on holiday
Somewhere tropical I bet.

You can’t bear
To put up a tree
You can’t stand your family
The turkey’s always too dry and
You’d much prefer something fried
You’re not in the mood
And you don’t care if you come across rude
Merry Christmas Mr Scrooge

Feeling sick
From the same old songs
That strangers knock at your door and ask you to sing along
You can’t stand the idea
Of some old man
Breaking into your house and leaving you gifts you already have (Ho ho ho)

And you’re not drawn in to all this consumer bliss
You’d rather have a holiday
You can’t bear
To put up a tree
You can’t stand your family
The turkey’s always too dry and
You’d much prefer something fried
You’re not in the mood
And you don’t care if you come across rude
Merry Christmas Mr Scrooge

You don’t mind the drink
Oh That’s your favourite bit
Repeats on the TV
It’s only fools and horses nonstop baby
Santa baby

You can’t bear
To put up a tree
You can’t stand your family
The turkey’s always too dry
Too scared to tell your mother
You’re afraid she’ll cry.
Spent November’s wages on gifts
But all you get is the same old stuff
You’re not in the mood
And you don’t care if you come across rude
It’s Merry Christmas Mr Scrooge
