Little Robots for Christmas Number One!! Ha!

lyrics

It's just another day, like the one before but this one's called Christmas
There's bets on if it snows, the gritter's out so, I suppose he knows

Royal Command calls me home

There's holly round the door and fairy lights adorn your Fraser Fir 6' 3''
A clear and frosty night, the moon up in the sky is good enough for me

Who knows how long they've been saving up for Christmas

I am getting drunk with my dad on Rémy Martin watching the box
Falling to sleep in my paper hat, my mother she sings We Three Kings

Royal Command calls me home

I wrote me mam a song and baked my dad a cake, I can't afford the things they gave me in exchange,
A warm goose down coat and feather pillows
I wonder how long they've been saving up for

Who knows how long they've been saving up for Christmas

I am getting drunk with my dad on Rémy Martin watching the box
Falling to sleep in my paper hat, my mother she sings We Three Kings

Royal Command calls me home

To all of my friends I haven't seen since this time last year,
It' funny how it goes, the time oh how it flows, let's have another beer

Who knows how long they've been saving up for Christmas
