Chrismas Is Cancelled - The Long Blondes

Came back from late night shopping
Saw your shadow on the curtain
I presumed you let yourself in
With the key you've yet to return

You ask me how I've been
And if I've seen much snow?
Skilfully avoiding things
That happened here a year ago

So she's turned you out has she
Well I can't say I'm surprised
After last year's festive farce
I find it hard to sympathise

I slid through slush on Boxing Day
The shops were shut, no films were on
You just wander round to hers
And left a note to say you've gone

Stood by the fireplace
You look ridiculous
You can't just come and stay here
Like you did last Christmas

You know what you did wrong
And Christmas, Christmas is cancelled this year

The last thing I expected
Was to come and find you knocking
At my door
Waiting for a treat in Christmas stockings
(How shocking!)

Don't take your jacket off
This is not your home
Just raise your glass to two more people
Spending Christmas day alone

Stood by the fireplace
You look ridiculous
You can't just come and stay here
Like you did last Christmas

You know what you did wrong
And Christmas, Christmas is cancelled this year

No mum don't worry about me
I'll just have fish and chips for tea
I'll watch the Queen and go to sleep
I'll watch the Queen and go to sleep

Stood by the fireplace
You look ridiculous
You can't just come and stay here
Like you did last Christmas

You know what you did wrong
And Christmas, Christmas is cancelled this year

Christmas is Cancelled this year

No mum don't worry about me
Just have a happy Christmas

Chrismtas is Cancelled this year oh oh oh
Chrismtas is Cancelled this year oh oh oh
