I Believe in Father Christmas

By the greatest band in the world:


They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be Peace on Earth
But instead it just keeps on raining
A veil of tears for the Virgin birth
I remember on Christmas morning
A winter's light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell, that Christmas tree smell
Eyes full of tinsel and fire

They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a Silent Night
They sold me a fairy story
But I believed in the Israelites
I believed in Father Christmas
I looked to the sky with excited eyes
till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
I saw him and through his disguise

I wish you a hopeful Christmas
I wish you a brave New Year
All anguish, pain and sadness
Leave your heart let your road be clear
They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be Peace on Earth
Hallelujah Noel be it heaven or hell
The Christmas we get we deserve
