Xmas number one?




Straight in


It’s been a tough year,
People gone, times hard,
But we don’t write that
In a ‘merry xmas’ card.

I think of you my love,
How you make loving fun,
And all I want to be
Is your xmas number one.

Days are short and cold
And the funds are low,
Xmas lists so long,
There’s no sign of snow.

I think of you my love,
Look, here comes the sun,
And all I want to be
Is your xmas number one.

Music’s on repeat,
Jingle bells on high,
Wham’s 'Last Xmas'
Lasts forever, who knows why.

I think of you my love,
Then I need nowhere to run,
And all I want to be
Is your xmas number one.

It’s a drawn-out day
For a lonely heart.
Some can’t wait for the end 
Of the joy to start.

But I think of you my love,
What we’ve done, done, done,
And all I want to be
Is your xmas number one.

Tune anyone?

I love this! No tune from me, alas, but if you find one you need to record it!

We're probably starting our Christmas poem this year with the following:

"By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion."

That's pretty cheery, right?

p.s. There are a few song snippets in this poem. One that some people might not recognise is 'Done, done, done' from 'Done' by Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker. One of my very favourite songs!
