One man's uplifting ode to the redemptive power of Christmas.

I Believe in Christmas

Written by Ali Boyd-Brent and Ben Fogg

Sing along. Full lyrics below:

It's been a year of trouble innocence has gon. Brexit burst our bubble, America’s gone wrong.

Its been a bad year for the living, Prince and Bowie dead, But when they came for sweet Mccaskill, I saw a cold front up ahead.

We all had hopes for ‘Suicide Squad’, but what the fuck was that? Lazy third act structure, and Will Smith looking fat!

There’s tension in the hight street, war in the middle east. There’s twitter shame, and global pain, fiscal strain and climate change, and to top it off, there’s Honey-G

but…

I believe that Christmas can save us from it all, I believe that Santa can stop Trump building walls, and if we fill our ears with carols and our hearts with yule tide song, I believe that Christmas (Choir: He believes that Christmas) can save us from it all.

I know we’ve all had struggles, but none compare to mine, I paid for twelve months at the gym, but i’ve only been three times. But I swear I’ve seen the future, next year is looking great, cos 2017 means game of thrones season 8 (the author acknowledges this to be an error, its actually season 7)

I believe that Christmas can save us from it all, I believe that Santa can stop Trump building walls, and if we fill our ears with carols and our hearts with yule tide song, I believe that, you believe that, he she and it believes that, we believe that, you plural believe that, they believe that, everybody believes that Christmas….

I believe that Christmas saves us all.

(Choir and trumpet play out)
