Christmas greetings

Christmas lullaby on youtube
I hope you grow up angry
Just like your dear old dad
I hope you grow up brave and strong
Not like me - all weak and sad
You said "Daddy, daddy,
You're stinking of booze"
I kissed him and said, "Kid,
I was born to lose.
But you have a future
And a big one to say
And I hope you'll remember
All the love that I gave
Shane McGowan was born on Christmas Day 1957, and is still with us, possibly because he is now pickled entirely from the dhrink.  He is reliably on the wireless at this time of year singing Fairytale of New York with Kirsty MacColl, who is regrettably no longer with us having been killed in the year 2000.  But I think his Christmas Lullaby, while not easy, is good for the day that's in it.

Happy Christmas.  щасливого Різдва, Счастливого Рождества, Nollaig Shona duit.
