The most illustrious and exalted master, minstrel and flutist, Ian Anderson, along with his mates, does his rendition of this wonderful song.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas.
Remember if you're traveling tomorrow, the Liveleak rule that states it is a punishable offense for Liveleak members themselves to wind up as road pancakes. We are only allowed to act as commentators, to editorialize and also eulogize the those who become victims of the roads. To that end, I hope and trust you'll all be safe as you visit family, friends and loved ones.
Lyrics for the young fellas who may not have heard this song before:
Once in Royal David's City stood a lowly cattle shed,
where a mother laid her baby.
You'd do well to remember the things He later said.
When you're stuffing yourselves at the Christmas parties,
you'll laugh when I tell you to take a running jump.
You're missing the point I'm sure does not need making;
that Christmas spirit is not what you drink.
So how can you laugh when your own mother's hungry
and how can you smile when the reasons for smiling are wrong?
And if I messed up your thoughtless pleasures,
remember, if you wish, this is just a Christmas song.
Hey, Santa... pass us that bottle, will you?
