fairytale of new york - the pogues

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last!

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day


I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day


On this day of honour, the finest time of the year and the day of happiness and generousity, I give you my favourite Christmas carol. If you don't have it already, download it or have someone download it for you. If you're one rich bastard, buy it!

I've had a truly nice day and I hope that you all, readers and non-readers, have had the same. Tomorrow I'll travel for Markaryd to meet the relatives, and then I'll stay in the woods for a few days. I'll be home by the 29th, and then probably by a working computer!

So, for now:
Merry Christmas!

Snugglie would also once more like to add that he miss his friends. Deeply.

Cheers!

haha, you sent that song to me =P It's a good song, but the lyrics are rather... interesting, hehe =P Miss you too! Hmm, I talked to someone about hanging out on the 29th but I guess you can't then. The 30th won't work for me, cause I need to clean A LOT ;P Hehe, maybe could work a bit, I dunno, but probably not. Oh well, hope you're having fun in the forest! Don't let the beaver eat you!
