Subject: Lyr Add: CHRISTMAS HAS BEEN CANCELLED (P Mortimer)
From: Sandra in Sydney
Date: 16 Dec 05 - 09:55 PM

An Ozzie favourite for you -

"Christmas has been cancelled" by Paul Mortimer
(Tune: Lili Marlene)

Christmas has been cancelled,
Santa Claus is dead.
When the scandal broke
He put a bullet through his head.
Pinned to his chest they found a note
Admitting what - the papers wrote:
That he was on the payroll
Of Toltoys and K-tel.

It was bigger still than Lockheed
Worse than Watergate.
Kids throughout the world
Called for his head upon a plate
The myth was destroyed and in its wake,
Old Santy stood there a callous fake.
And evidence is mounting
That he was C.I.A.

The Church it tried to brand him
A charlatan and worse.
The Pope said 'Keep off Christmas, mate,
We used that number first,
As a time when all good Christians sing
Of Jesus Christ and cribs and things.
Of course it's only bulldust
To get the faithful in.'

Further allegations
Have made the papers wail,
That Santa's love for children
Was way beyond the pale,
He always liked to give out toys
To little girls and little boys.
It seems that he was harmless
But some don't understand.

Well we can still be jolly
And celebrate New Year,
And we'll be nice to other folks
More than once a year.
With no tinsel trees or plastic snow
Or jingle bells or yo ho ho's.
And no more f***ing reindeer
Or little drummer boys.

Repeat first verse.

Lies, half-truths and propaganda, raggytash. You have been victimized by the tabloids.

Mrs. Santa is in that snug cottage at the North Pole, making cocoa for Santa and the elves at this very moment.

'fraid not Leeneia, Christmas will be cancelled this year Santa has actually has said


So don't leave a stocking on the mantle shelf
don't leave a treat for Rudolf and myself
stuff the Christmas turkey and sod the Christmas fuss
Mary's gone and left for the man from Toys R Us

I came here to find the lyrics which I learnt 30 years ago then forgot.
They weren't here so I've had to remember them.



While Shepherds Washed their socks by night
All seated on the ground
The sheepdogs asked for Christmas off
Or double time all round

For double time we'll guard your flocks
We'll fight the wily fox
Throw in an extra couple of Bob
We'll even wash your socks

And Lo that night was Christmas Eve
A star shone in the East
The Angel of the Lord came down
With sixteen pairs at least

The Angels got their laundry done
Untouched by human hand
They paid the dogs in garden peas
All fresh and newly canned.

This evening when you go to bed
Remember your dogs worth
Not only do they guard your flocks
They brought you Peas On Earth

See my previous reply for the full lyrics
I hadn't read The FAQ then.
The title is actually
"While Shepherds Washed their socks by night"

It's a poem by Les Barker
I learnt it in the 1980s.
It can be sung to the usual church tune of "While Shepherds watched ......."
