Archie and the Pogues

Faith, Family, Food, Festivities, Finances… miss even one of these and your Fun may be… no I won’t say it.

I promise not to be cynical. But do watch these for a reality check!

Christmas day at the Bunkers from  All in the Family (1971-1979)

From the Pogues:  Fairytale Of New York

It was christmas eve babe

In the drunk tank

An old man said to me: won’t see another one

And then they sang a song

The rare old mountain dew

I turned my face away and dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one

Came in eighteen to one

I´ve got a feeling

This year´s for me and you

So happy christmas

I love you baby

I can see a better time

Where all our dreams come true.

They got cars big as bars

They got rivers of gold

But the wind goes right through you

It´s no place for the old

When you first took my hand on a cold christmas eve

You promised me broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome you were pretty

Queen of new york city when the band finished playing they yelled out for more

Sinatra was swinging all the drunks they were singing

We kissed on a corner

Then danced through the night.

And the boys from the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay

And the bells were ringing out for christmas day.

You´re a bum you´re a punk
You´re an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy christmas your arse I pray god it´s our last.

And the boys of the NYPD choir’s still singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out
For christmas day.

I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can´t make it out alone
I´ve built my dreams around you

And the boys of the NYPD choir’s still singing Galway Bay
And the bells are ringing out
For christmas day.
