    It's on The Greatest Christmas Album In The World.

    'Purple Snowflakes' by Marvin Gaye is a glaring omission on that comp.

    'i wish i was home for christmas' if thats what its called.





    Hey, Mr. Churchill comes over here
    To say we're doing splendidly.
    But it's very cold out here in the snow
    Marching to and from the enemy.
    Oh I say it's tough, I have had enough,
    Can you stop the cavalry?

    I have had to fight almost every night,
    Down throughout these centuries.
    That is when I say, oh yes yet again,
    Can you stop the cavalry?

    Mary Bradley waits at home,
    In the nuclear fallout zone.
    Wish I could be dancing now,
    In the arms of the girl I love.

    Dub-i-dub-i-dum-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dum-dum-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dum-dum-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum
    Wish I was at home for Christmas.

    Bang goes another bomb on another town
    While the Czar and Jim have tea.
    If I get home, live to tell the tale,
    I'll run for all presidencies.
    If I get elected I'll stop
    I will stop the cavalry.

    Dub-i-dub-i-dum-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dum-dum-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dum-dum-dub-i-dum
    Dub-i-dub-i-dum
    Wish I was at home for Christmas.

    Wish I could be dancing now,
    In the arms of the girl I love.
    Mary Bradley waits at home,
    She's been waiting two years long.

    Wish I was at home for Christmas.​

    There are no christmas songs I like... and not cos I dont get into the christmas spirit, there's just none I'd rate much at any other time of the year.

    Stop the Cavalry, Jonah Lewie.

    My favourite My Christmas Prayer, either Billy Fury's or Saint Etienne's version.

    But I'm very fond of Santa Claus Is A Black Man by AKIM from the John Waters xmas album.
