Xmas number one?




Straight in


It’s been a tough year,
People gone, times hard,
But we don’t write that
In a ‘merry xmas’ card.

I think of you my love,
How you make loving fun,
And all I want to be
Is your xmas number one.

Days are short and cold
And the funds are low,
Xmas lists so long,
There’s no sign of snow.

I think of you my love,
Look, here comes the sun,
And all I want to be
Is your xmas number one.

Music’s on repeat,
Jingle bells on high,
Wham’s 'Last Xmas'
Lasts forever, who knows why.

I think of you my love,
Then I need nowhere to run,
And all I want to be
Is your xmas number one.

It’s a drawn-out day
For a lonely heart.
Some can’t wait for the end 
Of the joy to start.

But I think of you my love,
What we’ve done, done, done,
And all I want to be
Is your xmas number one.

Tune anyone?

I love this! No tune from me, alas, but if you find one you need to record it!

We're probably starting our Christmas poem this year with the following:

"By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion."

That's pretty cheery, right?
