A Christmas Song

Well why not, it’s 1st December. Jethro Tull reminds us that the spirit of Christmas isn’t what you drink.

Once in Royal David’s City stood a lowly cattle shed,
where a mother laid her baby.
You’d do well to remember the things He later said.
When you’re stuffing yourselves at the Christmas parties,
you’ll laugh when I tell you to take a running jump.
You’re missing the point I’m sure does not need making;
that Christmas spirit is not what you drink.

So how can you laugh when your own mother’s hungry
and how can you smile when the reasons for smiling are wrong?
And if I messed up your thoughtless pleasures,
remember, if you wish, this is just a Christmas song.

    Great sound. A much better choice than Cliff (can’t stand him). Don’t want to pour acid on a certain campaign but it highlights a kind of out-of-touch sentiment.

    What campaign? Not another “get Cliff a Christmas no. 1″ campaign?

    (I don’t have telly, so miss out on some of these important things, and I haven’t read the Daily Mail for a few days!)
