The Lyrics

When you stack shelves in a supermarket, you see a whole other side to Christmas . . .
I want some cranberries

Now look at them shoppers, that's the way to do it
Make a big list before you start
Isn't just shopping - don't you know it's Christmas?
Hurry for stuffing, and potatoes too
This isn't shopping, it's going into battle
Let me tell you, shoppers aren't done
Maybe run your foot over with Tesco's trolley
Maybe get a Christmas case of rum

We gotta get home to wrap our presents
Fighting shoppers for festive food
We gotta get round this supermarket
Rushing ruins the Christmas mood

See the bacon slicer on the deli counter
We'll have some sausage from there
A pound of bacon and some chipolatas
A block of Stilton and some cottage cheese

We gotta get home to baste turkey
Melting jelly, slicing trifle sponge
We gotta get mince pies for Santa
Get into the Christmas mood

I should have gone to Tesco.com
I should have ordered it all online
Got to get film, it needs sticking in the camera
Man, I don't call this fun
What's up there? Who's that? Driving Home For Christmas
Blasting on the speakers just to make us merry
That ain't working, shoppers getting frazzled
Hurry for stuffing and a glass of sherry

We gotta get home to our pine trees
Go to watch pretty twinkling lights
Get to the parties with some wine and cheese
Go to bed not too early

That wasn't shopping, we went into battle
We needed more than just some double cream
Shelf-stackers working, but they just can't keep up
Hurry for stuffing, buy one get one free
Hurry for stuffing, buy one get one free
Hurry for stuffing, buy one get one free
Look at that, look at that
I want some, I want some, I want some cranberries
I want some, I want some, I want some cranberries
