Christmastime is here, by golly
Disapproval would be folly
Deck the halls with hunks of holly
Spare the cup, and don’t say ‘when’
Kill the turkeys, ducks and chickens
Mix the punch, drag out the Dickens
Even though the prospect sickens
Brother, here we go again.
Pity poor Tom who obviously bears a grudge against the most wonderful time of the year. Maybe he got savaged by a reindeer when he was a child… Here at Liverpool Acoustic we don’t share his sentiments, and to prove it we’re celebrating all things Christmassy and Wintery with our seasonal special podcast.
Thanks to all of the artists who’ve submitted songs for this year’s show. If you want to catch up on the previous two then the links are here.
