An original Christmas cracker from us. Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!

lyrics

Well it's Christmas, 1955,
Three years to the day.
That you broke my heart and your blood was sprayed,
On the window pane.

The shot rang out in the dead of night,
You came home late and we'd had a fight,
You'd be sipping mulled wine in his arms tonight.

Now I'm spending my Christmas in jail,
No gifts, no cards come for me in the mail,
Now I'm spending my Christmas in jail.

It was Christmas, 1952,
That I could take no more.
What kind of lie had you prepared for me tonight,
For when you walked through the door?

Was there a trace of a smile formed on your face?
My hands were clenched in two fists of rage,
A white flash, a loud bang and I blew you away.

Now I'm spending my Christmas in jail,
No gifts, no cards come for me in the mail,
Now I'm spending my Christmas in jail.

And in that moment of unbridled passion,
You glimpsed the man you once loved,
As he lit the match and then turned the gas on,
Reigniting our love,
It burnt on, it burnt on.

Now I'm spending my Christmas in jail,
No gifts, no cards come for me in the mail,
Now I'm spending my Christmas in jail.
Now I'm spending my Christmas in jail.
Now I'm spending my Christmas in jail.
