Christmas Daze!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Mum’s stuck in the kitchen
Dad’s been on the piste
Grandad won’t stop whistling
As Queen Lizzie reads out her Christmas wish.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Me I’m lying on the floor
Fighting back the tears
Cos me drunken old man’s gone and torn
Me brand new Subbuteo teams pitch.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Bonetti’s just been trampled on
Chopper Harris smashed
Alan Hudson’s got no arms or legs
Both goalsmouths have been trashed.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When the old man’s on the whisky
He’s always doing things like this
Staggering through the scullery
And trampling on me pitch.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 George Best’s been knocked over
Denis Law’s been cracked
Bobby Charlton’s neath the sofa
Harry Gregg has snapped.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Mum has blown for full time
She’s grabbed her hat and coat
One more glass of sparkling wine
And she’ll get Dad by his throat.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The whole day’s out the winder
Last year just the same
When he ruined the Christmas dinner
Me mother almost slayed him.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Serves him blimmin right the sod
For going on the piste
But why’d he have to come sloshed
And tear up my new pitch?
