Oi!
Yeh!

A punk rock christmas this year,
Even santa's gonna be
A Sex Pistol for a day
All those christmas trees swinging safety pins from their leaves
It's gonna be
A punk rock christmas this year
Farah Fawcett will change her hairstyle for a day,
The Queen will sing
Anarchy In The UK
and old Mick Jagger will adopt
A strangler's swagger
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby
Rick Wakeman will take up the electric guitar, ha
And Johnny Ramone will get a sled for a car,
There's a group called The Damned, they say
Who play the four wise men in a play, in a play, IN A PLAY!!
It's gonna be, haha
A punk rock christmas this year
Even santa's gonna be
A Sex Pistol for a day
All those christmas trees swinging safety pins from their leaves
It's gonna be
A punk rock christmas this year
(Santa) What do you want for christmas,
Little boy?
(Boy) I want a Damned LP
With Eddie & The Hot Rods on the back,
I want a colour TV so I can kick it in
I want an Ace guitar,
And a subscription to Punk Magazine
(Santa) What else do you you want for christmas,
Little boy?
(Boy) I want two copies of God Save The Queen
With a picture sleeve
(Santa) With a picture sleeve?
(Boy) YEAH, WITH A PICTURE SLEEVE!
(Santa) If you're a good little boy
Your wish will come true
(Boy) YEAH, WELL IT BLOODY WELL BETTER!
We're gonna give ya
A punk rock christmas this year
And I'm gonna give you
A nice sweater all ripped to shreds,
Get mum and dad chic
Get some safety pins for their cheeks
It gonna be
A punk rock christmas this year
A punk rock christmas this year
A punk rock christmas this year
A punk rock christmas this year
A punk rock christmas this year (You know you love me like you do)

A punk rock christmas this year (Yeah, a punk rock, rock an roll)

  1. Great Record !!! Now I must ask you if you own a copy of the 12" Version which has two more songs by this band.
    B1 Have I The Right (Come Right Back)

    B2 Rich Kids
    The single only has the two Side A Songs but 12" adds on the two on Side B.
    I have searched for years for this one record.
    Thank You
