Christmas Song
 

guitar capo 1ºfret

C        G        D   Am Asus2  Asus4
Once in Royal David's City
C        G        D   Am Asus2  Asus4
stood a lonely cattle shed,
C        G        D      Am Asus2  Asus4
where a mother held her baby.
           C        G           D              Am Asus2  Asus4
You'd do well to remember the things He later said.

When you're stuffing yourselves at the Christmas parties,
you'll just laugh when I tell you to take a running jump.
You're missing the point I'm sure does not need making
that Christmas spirit is not what you drink.
So how can you laugh when your own mother's hungry,
and how can you smile when the reasons for smiling are wrong?
And if I just messed up your  thoughtless pleasures,
remember, if you wish, this is just a Christmas song.

(Hey! Santa! Pass us that
bottle, will you?)
