The Lyrics

This isn't something I'd previously considered, but there was a thread describing "X-Mas" as the commercial, secular holiday as compared to "Christmas", i.e. the religious version... but it occurred to me that if Lennon had recognised the distinction, he might have written this one for X-Mas...
And so this is X-mas
And what have you bought?
That last toy the shop had
For which you all fought
A present for X-mas
For your little boy
Can't see why he wants it
This crap plastic toy
A very merry X-mas
And please make sure that
The batt'ries ain't missing
Or leaking, or flat

And so this is X-mas
For cash you're now strapped
For presents and whisky
Have both been unwrapped
And so happy X-mas
For purchasing junk
For eating and bingeing
And getting so drunk
A very merry X-mas
And a barrel of beer
Let's hope it's a good one
Not fizzy or queer

And so this is X-mas (Mess all over)
And what have we done (Got to clean it)
We've opened our presents (Strewn all over)
Broken every one (And I mean it)
And so that was X-mas
Now kiss it goodbye
The year gone so quickly
Hell, doesn't time fly?
A very "merry" X-mas
With Champagne and beer
Let's hope you get sober
Before the new year

Mess all over
Wrapping paper
Mess all over

Same song, different mess. We must be taking the same steroids.

In whatever afterlife he's imagined, I'm sure John would approve.

I am shocked, shocked I tell you, to find a parody on Amiright that is about...oh my dear...must I actually type that word...that is a minute...I'm having deja vu...

It was quite an amusing coincidence with Rick's take on the same song - but odd coincidences happen nine times out of ten, I guess. The noise in the background as I write this has given me another idea for an updated Christmas parody, too...
