about

DoNY's first ever Christmas song. Happy times with a hint of realism! We all want a white, snowy, Christmas but it ain't gonna happen. Well, not in the UK anyway...

lyrics

Well if you’re dreaming of a white Christmas
In England, don’t build up hope
You’re more likely to see a white Easter
Than snow on Christmas day

Every Christmas I always wished for snow
But my wish never came true
In thirty one years upon this earth
I’ve never seen snow on Christmas day

So I know it aint gonna snow,
But that aint what it’s all about
Here’s to a realistic Christmas
And I know it aint gonna snow,
Oh I know it aint gonna snow
Here’s to a realistic Christmas

Every Christmas, we always spend too much
Then cut back, into the spring
This year, we’re sparing our excess
And giving some to someone else

And I know it aint gonna snow,
But that aint what it’s all about
Here’s to a realistic Christmas
And I know it aint gonna snow,
Oh I know it aint gonna snow
Here’s to a realistic Christmas

Peace on earth
And good will to mankind
I live in hope

So I know it aint gonna snow,
It prob-ly won’t even be cold
Here’s to a realistic Christmas

We sacrifice an old fir tree
Decorate then watch it die slowly
Here’s to a realistic Christmas

And at your work party you steal a kiss
It wouldn’t have happened if you weren’t as pissed
Here’s to a realistic Christmas

But the queen will give her speech at 3
And we’ll see our friends and family
Here’s to a realistic Christmas

So I’ll wish for hope and love, no tears
And a normal life for those in fear
Here’s to a realistic Christmas

But although I know it aint gonna snow,
Of course, I still will wish for snow
Here’s to a realistic Christmas
