Father Christmas

In the style of

The Kinks

Lyrics

when i was small
i believed in
santa claus
though i knew
it was my dad

and i would hang up
my stocking
at christmas
open my presents
and i'd be glad

but the last time
i played
father christmas
i stood outside
a department store

a gang of kids
came over and
mugged me
and knocked
my reindeer
to the floor

they said
father christmas
give us some money
don't mess around
with those silly toys

we'll beat ya up
if you don't
hand it over
we want your bread
so don't make us
annoyed
give all the toys
to the little rich boys

don't give my brother
a steve austin outfit
don't give my sister
a cuddly toy

we don't want
a jigsaw or
monopoly money
we only want
the real mccoy

father christmas
give us some money
we'll beat you up
if you make us
annoyed

father christmas
give us some money
don't mess around
with those silly toys

but give my daddy
a job
'cause he needs one
he's got
lots of mouths
to feed

but if you've got one
i'll have
a machine gun
so i can scare
all the kids
on the street

father christmas
give us some money
we got no time
for your silly toys
we'll beat ya up
if you don't
hand it over

we want your bread
so don't make us
annoyed
give all the toys
to the little rich boys

have yourself
a merry merry
christmas
have yourself
a good time

but remember
the kids who've
got nothin'
while you're drinkin'
down your wine

father christmas
give us some money
we got no time
for your silly toys

father christmas
please hand it over
we'll beat you up
so don't make us
annoyed

father christmas
give us some money
don't mess around
with those silly toys
we'll beat ya up
if you don't
hand it over

we want your bread
so don't make us
annoyed
give all the toys
to the little rich boys
