KINKS
FATHER CHRISTMAS                   Ray Davies


(The *G thru *D sequences could probably be played as something more
like:  G Bm7 Em D   G  Bm7 Em D - but it's all in the bass)

C G  C G   C G   C  G
G C D   G C D   G C D  G C D

*G
When  I  was  small  I  believed  in  Santa  Claus
                      *D
'Though  I  knew  it  was  my  dad
G
And  I  would  hang  up  my  stocking  at  Christmas
                         D
Open  my  presents  and  I'd  be  glad
Em                       Bm
But  the  last  time  I  played  Father  Christmas
Em                       B7
I  stood  outside  a  department  store
G  
A  gang  of  kids  came  over  and  mugged  me
                             D
They  knocked  my  reindeer  to  the  floor
            C      G          C               G
And  said  Father  Christmas  give  us  some  money
C             G                  C        D
Don't  mess  around  with  those  silly  toys
       C          G            C                G
We'll  beat  you  up  if  you  don't  hand  it  over
C                G                 C           D  
We  want  your  bread  so  don't  make  us  annoyed
                 C     D                       
Give  all  the  toys          -          
                        G   C  D   G  C  D
to  the  little  rich  boys

G
Don't  give  my  brother  a  Steve  Austin  outfit
                             D
Don't  give  my  sister  a  cuddly  toy
     G
We  don't  want  a  jigsaw  or  monopoly  money
                      D
We  only  want  the  real  Macoy
C       G          C              G
Father  Christmas  give  us  the  money
C                 G             C            D
We'll  beat  you  up  if  you  make  us  annoyed
C       G          C               G
Father  Christmas  give  us  some  money
C            G               C            D
Don't  mess  around  with  those  silly  toys
Em                       Bm
But  give  my  daddy  a  job  'cos  he  needs  one
Em                    B7
He's  got  lots  of  mouths  to  feed
G 
And  if  you've  got  one  I'll  have  a  machine  gun
                             D
So  I  can  scare  all  the  kids  on  the  street

C  G   C  G

C        G          C               G
Father  Christmas  give  us  some  money

We've  got  no  time  for  your  silly  toys

C               G                  C          D
We  want  your  bread  so  don't  make  us  annoyed

Have  yourself  a  good  time
G
But  remember  the  kids  who  got  nothing
                          D
While  you're  drinking  down  your  wine


C        G          C               G
