Father Christmas Knows

by Declan Bennett

lyrics

I'm happy and I know it
I've been working all day and I have little left to show for it
I work hard
To feel free
But December is tough because everyone rushes right past me

I don't suppose Father Christmas knows
All the bad things that I've done this year
Cos for some reason this season
All I'm surrounded by is laughter and good cheer
But I promise next year that I'll try to be
The boy they all want around their Xmas tree

Sleeping rough and finding floors
Because my family think what I am should be kept behind closed doors

I'm looking through the glass
They're watching tv shows
enjoying their Xmas without me behind closed windows

I don't suppose...

If he's forgotten where I live
Or it's delivered to my old address
Tell him to not to ask my parents
They've not been around to visit yet
Tell him I am home most nights
That I sleep under the million and gazillion xmas lights
Just off regent street
Where all I can hear
Is the da da da da ...
