The Lyrics

I'm beginning to get pissed off by Christmas
Ev'ry ****ing year
There are adverts which never end
Telling us all to spend
If we don't we simply won't get Christmas cheer
I'm beginning to get hacked off by Christmas
What a damn disgrace
Ads both quiet and loud and brash
Saying "Come here and spend your cash"
Right up in your face.

Buying whole stores
From gift-selling whores
It's Santa's takeover bid
Presents for Jim
And for her and for him
That's how many fucking quid?
And beer and wine at Christmas time - yeah, right.. it's for the kids

Yes, I'm seriously pissed off by Christmas
Ev'rywhere I go:
Every website and every mall
They're just hypocrites, one and all
Just wanting to take our hard-earned dough
Yes, I'm seriously f***ed off by Christmas
Soon the bells will start,
Just one more thing I cannot hack
Soon I think I'm gonna crack, an'
Blow them all apart

Merry Christmas Phil. You are the spokesman of the AmiRight generation with this one! I saw the title - saw the author - thought "Yep" :) But I wouldn't have it any other way!

This has all been said before, best of all by that prince of parody Eric Idle ('F*ck Christmas'). I think there are worthier subjects for your considerable talents, Phil. Abstain.

Lifeliver - you have it the wrong way round: I really honestly cannot abide Christmas and all the overwhelming tides of hypocrisy that go with it. This is my way of getting it out of my system - a form of catharsis, if you like. Haven't heard that Eric Idle one yet, but I assume it's on Youtube or similar & will a bit later. Besides, I don't play stuff written by other people much these days, so it doesn't really matter if someone else had written something similar first; also, I think you might find I have written on worthier subjects, too.

Pippin :-) And I hope yours was a merry one. And Christmas.

Sorry Phil, meant no offence. I guess my point was simply a lot of contributors (including me) have been getting it out of their system and it can wear a little thin, especially after Christmas day. As for worthier topics, I've sampled some of your earlier work with great admiration.

The thing I like about the Eric Idle number is it's incredibly banal, so uncharacteristic for him. On paper the lyrics look pathetic, almost childish, yet in performance they're hilarious. It shows up the difference well between writing for a readership and for an audience, although of course many parodies work for both. Check it out.

I believe you are in Australia, correct? That last line could be very troublesome here. I'm sure you get that much of the news from the States. Reportedly, retail stores make most of their profits for the year from the last month of the year. Buying stuff we don't need from the exploiters of Third World labour is how we fulfill our patriotic duty to support our economy. On the 4th of July we burn up fireworks made in Communist Chinese labor camps to celebrate the illusion of our freedom. It's just such contradictions and bizarre juxtapositions that give us all something to write about.

Lifeliver - no offence taken (especially with nice complements) :-) I've found over the last few years as I've performed more, and written more for performance, that what works on paper (and especially on amiright) is very different to what works live.. will have a listen when the children are in bed :-)

Patrick - no, I'm in the UK; have to admit that I didn't think about the possible impact of the last line until after I saw it posted. Completely agree with the rest of what you wrote - it is pretty bizarre.
