Lyrics of The Great Hunger:The Life & Songs Of Shane MacGowan (Complete Version)

A Christmas Lullaby

It seems like a freeze out
it seems like a freize
stumbling i fell down
and prayed on my knees
the ice wagon's coming
to pick up the stiffs
had a chat with an old one
he was gone in a jiff
and santa and his reindeer
jumped over the moon
so hush little child
santa's coming here soon
Tura lura luray
tura lura lie
tura lura luray
it's a christmas lullaby
tura lura luray
tura lura lie
tura lura luray
it's a christmas lullaby
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."
Tura lura luray
tura lura lie
tura lura luray
it's a christmas lullaby
tura lura luray
tura lura lie
tura lura luray
it's a christmas lullaby
Heres to all the little kids
who haven't got no clothes
heres to all the little kids
who haven't got no homes
it's christmas time in palastine
it's christmas in beirut
they're scrapping 'round for rice
not for tutti fruits
and the christmas lights, they blew up
now the 'lecky's all gone dead
i look like a coal miner
and i've a pain inside my head
Tura lura luray
tura lura lie
tura lura luray
it's a christmas lullaby
tura lura luray
tura lura lie
tura lura luray
it's a christmas lullaby
Tura lura luray
tura lura lie
tura lura luray
it's a christmas lullaby
tura lura luray
tura lura lie
tura lura luray
it's a christmas lullaby
[the chorus for the song is stolen from "tura lura luray (that's an irish lullaby)" written by james royce shannon. van morrison has performed it with the band on their album "the last waltz".]
