about

Christmas 2020:

A few people I know have recorded Christmas songs this year, there's been some really good ones. I thought I'd have a crack.

It's called 'A Very British Christmas', and I'm taking a look at current times through the window of morbid humour.

ALL PROFITS GO TO MIND - THE MENTAL HEALTH CHARITY, so if you can't be bothered to make a purchase, if you take umbrage at any of the lyrics, or just can't stand the song and think it's crap, then please just buy it anyway! - Mind are providing one of the most essential services there could possibly be right now. It's not overstating the case to say that during current times there is a mental health emergency. People need the help of Mind even more than they did before.

Thanks for listening and I hope you have a reasonable (at the very least) Christmas.

lyrics

A VERY BRITISH CHRISTMAS

Seven hours of daylight
And a litre of hand sanitizer
I'll meet you outside Greggs tonight
By the overflowing bins
The local youths are hustling
Pulling wheelies in our faces
While their mums are online worshipping
To repent for all their sins

Have a very British Christmas
All boxed up and listless
Forget about your wishes and comply with all you're told
Have a very British Christmas
Full of grease and socially distanced
In your vacant Netflix coma - what a fun way to grow old

Primark Christmas Jumper
Well it gives a dash of colour
But it just seems oh-so desperate, against this backdrop of despair
Online poncy craft beer
Middle class gifts for the hapless
They'll be selling beards and smug grins next, what's not to like and share?

Have a very British Christmas
All boxed up and listless
Forget about your wishes and comply with all you're told
Have a very British Christmas
Full of grease and socially distanced
In your vacant Netflix coma what a fun way to grow old

Spread your views on Facebook
In your sealed-off echo-chamber
Brexit, Vaccines, BLM
Take your sides like football teams
All your online squabbling - it all ends up as pointless
The phrase 'divide and conquer'
Well that sums up all your memes

Have a very British Christmas
All boxed up and listless
Forget about your wishes and comply with all you're told
Have a very British Christmas
Full of grease and socially distanced
In your vacant Netflix coma what a fun way to grow old

"Well, Babs is dead gawd bless her!"
Sadly Schofield's still around
"Donate more for the missing girl
Cos she really still could be found"
"God I hate this government!
-But I still use the PM's first name"
What a brilliant time to be alive
We're all one and the same!

Biden, Sunak, Starmer
Absorbing all the media
Folk still look to power
Like they might improve our lives(!)
Quiet desperation
Embedded in the nation
But "it's 4pm and I'm bollocksed already
Busy browsing 'cheating wives'"

So have a very British Christmas
All boxed up and listless
Forget about your wishes and comply with all you're told
Crap cocaine and hair extensions
Lip fillers and short attentions
In your vacant Netflix coma what a fun way to grow old
