Christmas At My House (Demo)

about

This demo version captures the way this track was created - the entire thing conceived, written and recorded (on Mark's phone) in about an hour at our final rehearsal session of 2012.

lyrics

Hold on tight it's that time of year
Give us a smile for your Christmas cheer
Heading home for a week or more
Family fighting 'fore you're in the door

Christmas at my house
Turkey's too dry but the booze won't run out
Christmas at my house
Turkey's too dry but the booze won't run out

Granddad's hanging round the locked sweet jar
Grandma's left in the back of the car
Mum is fussing round the old turkey
Dad is waiting for the old Queen's speech

Christmas at my house
Turkey's too dry but the booze won't run out
Christmas at my house
Turkey's too dry but the booze won't run out

Sister arguing with her boyfriend
Bond film on the telly again
Mum makes brother do the washing up
Dad has gone upstairs to sleep it off

Christmas at my house
Turkey's too dry but the booze won't run out
Christmas at my house
Turkey's too dry but the booze won't run out

Hold on tight it's that time of year
Give us a smile for your Christmas cheer
Heading home for a week or more
Family fighting but they're still yours

Christmas at my house
Turkey's too dry but the booze won't run out (Come on over)
Christmas at my house
Turkey's too dry but the booze won't run out (Come on over)
