Fairytale Of New York

Melody -

1. It was Christmas Eve babe in the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
And I turned my face away
And dreamed about you.

2. Got on a lucky one came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true.

3. They've got cars
Big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes
Right through you
It's no place for the old.

4. When you first
Took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was
Waiting for me.
  5. You were handsome, you were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more, Sinatra was swinging
All the drunks they were singing we kissed
On the corner then danced through the night.

6. The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing
'Galway Bay'
And the bells
Were ringing
Out for Christmas day.

7. You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Living there
Almost dead on a drip
In that bed.

8. You scum bag
You maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God
It's our last.

9. I could have been someone
So could anyone you took my dreams
From me when I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own can't make it
all alone I've built my dreams around you.
