SANTA WAS A YELLOW BELLY

 A CARPENTER FROM ANTON'S GOWT

HE CARVED THE KIDS TEN THOUSAND TOYS

 TO STOP EM ALL GOING WITHOUT

 

WE HATE TO SPOIL A CHRISTMAS TALE

BUT EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW

THAT SANTA MOVED FROM LAPLAND

SOME FIFTY YEARS AGO

HE FOUND IT WAS TOO COLD UP THERE

OF THIS THERE WAS NO DOUBT

SO HE PACKED HIS BAGS AND GOT OUT OF THERE

AND HE MOVED TO ANTON'S GOWT.

 

SANTA HAD A PROBLEM

TO PREPARE FOR CHRISTMAS DAY

HE NEEDED ELVES TO HELP HIM PACK

AND DEER TO PULL HIS SLEIGH

BUT MRS CLAUSE SAID WE’RE IN THE FENS

AND ELVES THEY DON’T LIVE HERE

THEN WE’LL USE IMPS SAID SANTA

AND BEAST OUR SLED WILL STEER

 

NOW SANTA'S ROBE IS RED AND WHITE

YOU’LL BE SURPRISED TO KNOW

AND THOUGH WE THINK OF HIM LIKE THIS

IT WASN'T ALWAYS SO

HE USED TO DRESS IN SHABBY SACK

IT WAS SO DARK AND DANK

BUT HE  PICKED UP HIS NEW COLOUR  SCHEME

FROM A TRIP TO SINCIL BANK

 

SANTA HAD A MISTRESS

HE HAD MET AT SINCIL BANK

THE MIGHTY IMPS WERE THREE NIL DOWN

AND SANTA'S HEART HAD SANK

A BUXOM BLONDE SAT NEXT TO HIM

THEIR LOVE WAS PLAIN TO SEE

AND THAT NIGHT SANTA SCORED  A GOAL

HER NAME WAS MAVIS ENDERBY

 

IF ANYONE SAYS DIFFERENTLY

YOU’VE GOTTA MAKE IT CLEAR

SANTA LIVES IN ANTON'S GOWT

RIGHT HERE IN LINCOLNSHIRE

SO LOOK OUT ACROSS YOUR ROOFTOP KIDS

HE’LL BE PASSIN DOWN YOUR WAY

IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME IN LINCOLNSHIRE

THREE CHEERS HIP HIP HOORAY

 

CHORUS

 

CHORUS   

Santa was a Yellow Belly  Brommell, Pout and Glenn
