Merry Christmas? Not in this family!
The original song can be heard HERE.

The beers, the hos, the knuckle fights
The transgressed visitation rights
All comes to blow on Christmas night
The one night the family's gathered here

It's Christmas and settling scores night
Up and down the stairs
The adults swear
Us kids are hiding here
In underneath the stairs together

The family's packed, emotions fly
Big sister's sacked a passer-by
Out back the neighbour's terrified
Kids of his all stand and window-stare

That bugs Gramps, he's getting heart cramps
Grandma doesn't care
-It's just a flare!
-I'll take the doobie, dear!
They stay down on the floor together

[POLICE SIRENS INTERLUDE]

We hide in fear

They'll take Pa and lecture our Ma
-Ma'am, this time of year
-You shouldn't swear!
The words they get to hear
Would cause a priest to flip forever

The thing with Yule, they've closed the school
We have to spend it with these fools
And based on history as a rule
Social service fear to come to near

It's Christmas and settling scores night
Up and down the stairs
The Aunties swear
The Uncles had affairs
And now they're moving in together

That bugs Gramps, with more of heart cramps
Falling down the stairs
And Grandma swears
I'm glad the dogs are here
Next Yule we best run off together!
