Xmas Bloody Xmas

Trans by:  TV Smith

A         D         A         D

 

A

It's been building up

Bm

Now we're coming up

D                                             E

To the time of year when greed is good

A                    

Snow and icicles

D

The price triples

Bm                                          E

But you wouldn't change it if you could

D

The tills ring out like jingle bells

A

The kitchen's filled with murderous smells

E                                                         A         A7

No-one's going to end up hungry here

D

We'll snooze under the Xmas tree

A

While boring films play on T.V.

E                                 A

Forget about reality - cheers!

 

E         A

It's Xmas, Xmas, Xmas bloody Xmas

D                                 E

It's all you ever hear

A

Xmas, Xmas, Xmas bloody Xmas

D                                             E

Until it almost sounds sincere

 

A

Carol singers croon

Bm

Sentimental tunes

D                                             E

Suddenly your problems disappear

A

Am I losing touch

D

Or did I drink too much

Bm                              E

Or is a real solution nowhere near?

D

This great big party never stops

A

Hang tinsel round your cardboard box

E                                             A                     A7

Last year's leftovers are back in the shops

D

And landfills spew out plastic bags

A

From lorryloads of booze and fags

E                                                         A

God, don't you hate this time of year?

 

E         A

It's Xmas, Xmas, Xmas bloody Xmas

D                                 E

It's all you ever hear

A

Xmas, Xmas, Xmas bloody Xmas

D                                                         E

Until it almost sounds sincere, Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

 

 

A         D         A         D         E

 

D

Under studio lights the Santas fry

A

In shows recorded last July

E

Tanned professionals read their lines

A                                 A7

To moth-eaten reindeer

D

Play victim in fake-snowball fights

A

Where no-one's injured, no-one dies

E

No-one has to sleep outside

A                     A7

Freezing and in fear

D

Singing, "Goodwill to all mankind!"

A

We'll put things right some other time

E                                                         A

Meanwhile - that special day is here

 

E         A                                             D

So happy Xmas, happy bloody Xmas

                                    E

It almost sounds sincere

A                                                         D

Happy Xmas, happy bloody Xmas

                                    E

It almost sounds sincere, Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
