F
FI really like Christmas
Bb6
It's sentiBb6mental I know
F
But I just really Flike it
I am hardly religious
Bb6
I'd rather Bb6break bread with Dawkins than Desmond Tutu
F
To be Fhonest
CC7
And yes I have Call of the usual objections to consumerC7ism
Bb6
The commercialisation of an ancient Bb6religion
To the westernisation of a dead Palestinian
F
Press-ganged into selling Playstations and Fbeer
C
But I still really Clike it
F
FI'm looking forward to Christmas
Bb6
Though I'm not exBb6pecting
F
A visit from FJesus
Chorus
C
I'll be seeing my Cdad
ADm
My brother and sisters, my Agran and my Dmmum
FBb6
They'll be Fdrinking white wine in the Bb6sun
C
I'll be seeing my Cdad
ADm
My brother and sisters, my Agran and my Dmmum
FBb6
They'll be Fdrinking white wine in the Bb6sun
F
FI don't go in for ancient wisdom
Bb6
I dont believe Bb6just cos ideas are tenacious
F
It means they are Fworthy
F
FI get freaked out by churches
Bb6sus4Bb6
Some of the Bb6sus4hymns that they sing have nice Bb6chords
F
But the lyrics are Fdodgy
CC7
And yes I have Call of the usual objections to miseduC7cation
Bb6
Of children who in tax exempt instiBb6tutions are taught to externalise blame
F
And to feel ashamed and to judge things as plain right or Fwrong
C
But I quite like the Csongs
F
FI'm not expecting big presents
Bb6
The old combiBb6nation of socks, jocks and chocolate
F
Is just fine by Fme
Chorus
C
Cause I'll be seeing my Cdad
ADm
My brother and sisters, my Agran and my Dmmum
FBb6
They'll be Fdrinking white wine in the Bb6sun
C
I'll be seeing my Cdad
ADm
My brother and sisters, my Agran and my Dmmum
FBb6
They'll be Fdrinking white wine in the Bb6sun
Bb6
And Bb6you my baby girl
F
My Fjetlagged infant daughter
Bb6
You'll be Bb6handed round the room
Bb9
Like a Bb9puppy at a primary school
Bb6
And Bb6you won't understand
F
But Fyou will learn some day
Bb6
That Bb6wherever you are and whatever you face
Bb9
Bb9These are the people
ADm
Who'll make you feel Asafe in this Dmworld
FBb6
My Fsweet blue-eyed Bb6girl
Bb6
And Bb6if my baby girl
F
When you're Ftwenty one or thirty one
Bb6
And Bb6Christmas comes around
Bb9
And you Bb9find yourself nine thousand miles from home
