The Lyrics

I'm NOT a Cliff Richard fan - so... well apologies to all those who are....
So this is Christmas
The Big Day’s in sight
The presents are wrapped up
But something isn’t right
‘Cause there’s someone missing
That man isn’t here
Who represents Christmas
Forgotten this year

So where is Cliff Richard
And his big Christmas song?
Did someone upset him?
What did we do wrong?

He says the DJs
Think he’s out of date
His Mistletoe and Wine
A song they all hate
So far this Christmas
Has been cliché-free
Should we now believe in
The Cliff Con-spiracy?

‘Cause there’s no Cliff Richard
On the telly this year
His fans are in mourning
The rest of us cheer

(Up pipes a little chorus of Cliff Fans:)
(Cliff… where… AAAARRRRE… you?
‘Cause… with… OUT… you
It’s… not…. Chriiiiiis… maaaaas….
WAAAA… aaaaahhhh… AAAAAAHHH… aah!)

So now Cliff Richard
Just where have you gone?
Are you saving yourself
For next year’s Wimbledon?
You missed out, Cliff Richard
‘Cause even the Queen
Is up there on YouTube
So get with the scene!

Get merry, Cliff Richard!
Pen us all something twee
That aint like no Christmas
That’s happened to me!

(Another chorus from the Cliff Fans:)
(Cliff… weeeee… MISS… you!
Where… you…… GONE… boy?
Give… us… CLI – CHES…..
NOOOOW…..OWWWW…..OWWWW… OWWW!)

I've never heard of Cliff Richard, but I like this song. It could describe a plethora of performers who purvey pukey pap.

Thanks everyone :^)
You've never heard of Cliff Richard, PMS? You are indeed blessed! Just for you, this is a link to possibly his most awful Christmas song, Mistletoe and Wine (hence the reference in the song)

And now try to imagine the fear with each approaching Christmas, when he used to churn out somehing like this EVERY YEAR....!
