A Good Ole Christmas Jingle

8 Sleeps till Christmas

Last year I posted, as part of my Special Guest Posts, a song called ‘I believe in Father Christmas’. It’s probably one of my all-time favourite Christmas Songs. I also happened to mention that my closest ever second favourite is this.

I just had to post it because, not only is it Queen but the lyrics are just so on point for this time of year. With a score that, for me, evokes all sorts of memories and feelings, it is an absolute classic.

Written by Brian May and Roger Taylor it’s:

Thank God It’s Christmas

Oh my love
We’ve had our share of tears
Oh my friends
We’ve had our hopes and fears
Oh my friends
It’s been a long hard year
But now it’s Christmas
Yes, it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas

The moon and stars seem awful cold and bright
Let’s hope
The snow will make this Christmas right
My friend the world
Will share this special night
Because it’s Christmas
Yes it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
For
One
Night

Thank God it’s Christmas, yeah
Thank God it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
Can it be Christmas?
Let it be Christmas
Every day

Oh my love
We live in troubled days
Oh my friend
We have the strangest ways
All my friends
On this one day of days
Thank God it’s Christmas
Yes it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
For
One
Day

Thank God it’s Christmas
Yes it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
Ooh yeah
Thank God it’s Christmas
Yes yes yes yes it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
For
One
Day

Christmas, a very merry Christmas to you all
