  • Song Lyrics:
    Sitting here on Christmas Eve
    with a brandy in my hand
    Well, I've had a few too many
    and it's getting hard to stand
    I keep hearing noises
    from my fireplace
    I must be going crazy
    or the brandy's won the race

    And I keep hearing
    Ho ho ho, guess who's here?
    Your fat and jolly friend draws near
    Ho ho ho, surprise, surprise
    The bearded weirdie's just arrived

    Ho ho ho, guess who's here?
    Your fat and jolly friend draws near
    Ho ho ho, surprise, surprise
    The bearded weirdie's just arrived

    On my roof there's snorting sounds
    and bells inside my head
    My vision's blurred with color
    and all I see is red (and all he sees is red)
    There's a pair of large size wellies (wellies!)
    coming down my flue
    And the smell of burning rubber
    Oh, is filling up the room


    (first line of chorus changes to-)
    And we keep hearing...
