Just dug this up from the old forum. It seems I posted this on Christmas Day 2007  :shock:  (well, I had to try to make my 1000th post special didn't I?  ;) ).

This came out of a discussion about the blatant commercialism that surrounds Chrimbo. The tune is already written....  :)

    NO ME NO EL

    No good no will no glad no tide
    No cosy fire no warm inside
    No figs no dates no ginger beer
    No ho ho ho no season’s cheer
    No Glüh no wein no bell no peal
    No peel no fruit no festive meal
    No star no lead no candle bright
    No peace on earth no silent night

    Heartless and cynical
    Cold in the middle
    The emotion just gets in your way
    The promotion is clinical
    Little by little you’re making us pay
    Keep making us pay

    No free no will no gift no find
    No thought no count no very kind
    No buy no friend no more no nice
    No sale no deal just higher price
    No bow no wrap no sellotape
    No good TV no Great Escape
    No get no give no give no love
    No time no pray no god above

    Pointless and trivial
    Shamelessly driven
    So devoted to getting your way
    You’ve polluted the miracle
    Little by little you take it away
    Keep taking away

    Killing Christmas
    Killing Christmas
    Killing Christmas for you

    Even now in front of me
    All day and night on my TV
    ”Buy it now, it can be yours just call today”
    All my life
    We have traded all we should be

    Selling Christmas
    Selling Christmas
    Selling Christmas to you

    No more no right no gonna play
    No need no greed on Christmas day
    No buy no love no win no race
    No need no rush just breathing space
    No spend no stretch no credit card
    No more excess, decision hard
    No need no trade no buy no sell
    No you no me no me no el

    Wide eyed and magical
    Right in the middle
    This emotion I won’t shut away
    The true meaning is critical
    Little by little I’ll cut you away
    Keep cutting away
    I’ll cut you away…[/list]

     :D

    If it's not enough to be in the presence of the demi-gods that make up Frost*, there's always Pedro to remind you that they don't have the monopoly on genius.
    Absolutely brilliant.

    Not quite on the same lines as the originality of Pedro, but I have just remembered that I have a version of Chris Squire's 'Run With Fox' with alternative lyrics of a Chrismassy nature and sung by the man himself.  You'll get the idea fairly quickly....

    All together now...

    ''Now the season, now the question
    Time to see what Santa's bought
    For the giver and receiver
    Let us see what we have got

    Are you hopeful, are you haunted?
    By the gifts of Christmas past
    Face the future undaunted
    Made a list or took your chance?

    A new pair of socks!
    Oh, not again! Hoping for something Nintendo
    A new pair of socks!
    At least you'll be warm, at least you'll be warm in the cold
    (You can go for walks)
    And be prepared, be prepared for nice warm toes
    In your new pair of socks

    Every year the same old story
    Never get what you desire
    From your aunt in Tobermoray
    Don't you think that she would tire of
    A new pair of socks!

    This time in green
    Better than last year - bright yellow
    A new pair of socks!
    Year after year
    Year after year it gets old
    Beware of the socks
    And be prepared, be prepared for warm and cosy toes

    Let us live to get an I-pod
    Or a PS2 or 3
    mp3 player or computer
    One of these would do for me

    Have yourselves that certain Christmas
    Eat be glad and drink the wine
    When you open up that present
    Smile, say thank you but don't whine

    What can this be from your auntie
    It's not in a box
    Please don't tell me
    Oh, it can't be
    A new pair of socks

    Beneath the tree, the Christmas tree
    While everyone talks
    I see a label marked for me
    A new pair of socks

    I know just what it's going to be
    A new pair of socks.....''

    Gotta be better than that horrible thing that was pointed out to us in the 'Other bands' section.
    I play the right notes but not necessarily in the correct order

    Or they could hand out lyric sheets and we'll all sing along?
