about

Tired of the usual Christmas songs? Fancy hearing something a bit different? By downloading "Christmas Double Bill" you will receive both my new song "When Snow Falls" and my previous, hilarious, song "Staff Christmas Party".

"When Snow Falls" is a bittersweet song about the joy and happiness of Christmas when you're a child, but the realisation that those days are behind you brings a hint of sadness.

"Staff Christmas Party" captures the madness, mayhem and shenanigans of the craziest night of the year - the Christmas night out!

Track Name: When Snow Falls
The snow falls down around my face
Like it used to when I was a boy
The way it falls, so gently
Takes me back to a time of great joy
A time of fun, excitement and some
Laughter with those I hold dear
It happens each year, my heart fills with cheer
When snow falls

When snow falls
When snow falls
It happens each year, my heart fills with cheer
When snow falls

I recall when I was a child
With excitement I'd creep down the stairs
I would shake and I'd shiver
Thinking of the treasures down there
My father he was just the same
He'd see in my eyes the boy
That he used to be when he was wee
When snow falls

When snow falls
When snow falls
The boy he used to be when he was wee
When snow falls

I'd open the door to the living room
Reach up and switch on the big light
The room would fill with colour
Oh, what a wonderful sight
The dram I'd left out was empty
The carrots and the biscuits were gone
And to my surprise, gifts each shape and size
When snow falls

When snow falls
When snow falls
To my surprise, gifts each shape and size
When snow falls

Now I've grown much older
My hair is sprinkled with snow
I think back and I wonder
Where did the years all go?
I smile down at my son
And I see in his eyes the boy
That I used to be, when I was wee
When snow falls

When snow falls
When snow falls
The boy I used to be when I was wee
When snow falls
Track Name: Staff Christmas Party
I’ve spent all day on the telephone
My brains are mince and my mind is blown
Can’t wait for five o clock to come
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
My glad-rags are packed up in my drawer
Cleaned and ironed and looking braw
I’ll be the finest lad that you’ve ever saw
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight

Five o clock comes, time to get dressed
Put some gel in my hair ‘cos it looks a mess
Run for the bus, say goodbye to stress
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight

I get to the place, I try to find my seat
Everyone looks so swell, everyone looks so neat
I think tonight’s gonna go down a treat
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
I meet my mates and we’re having a laugh
Tonight I seem them as friends, not just members of staff
Normally I can’t put up with their chaff
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight

The banter’s flowing and it’s time to dine
We’ve pulled the crackers and we’ve opened the wine
The music’s started and I’m feeling fine
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight

I’ve had some pints and some drams as well
Got up from my seat and I nearly fell
But I don’t care ‘cos I’m feeling well
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
Already someone’s had too much
Their calling their boss a such and such
It’s really funny to see, it’s really funny to watch
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight

Their jokes are funny when they’re normally not
Trying to work out how many rounds I’ve bought
It’s Christmas, who cares, let’s have another shot!
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight

It’s time to get up and dance, I decide
Everyone’s on the floor doing the “Cha Cha Slide”
I cannae stop laughing and it hurts my sides
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
I’ve had too much now, I think I might spew
I need to run and find the nearest loo
The cubicle’s vacant and that’s my cue
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight

How I got home, I don’t remember
It’s always the same each December
I’m dreading Monday, when I hear the stories
I hope the details aren’t too gory
I’ll never learn, I’ll never see the light
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
It’s the staff Christmas party tonight
