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

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

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!
