lyrics

Every year here in V.T., by the lights of our Christmas tree
Gordon, Edd, Wilson and me, make a tape for our party
In our cutting room, with the best things that we find
Light our advent crown

Mister Noseybonk is here, lighting a fag between takes
And Janet Ellis in the pool, on the Blue Peter spring break
James has brought mince pies and it’s two mins till midnight
Such a crush eh James?

There’s a cracking clip of me when I cast a boom shadow
Tripped over leads when I worked on the Wogan show
If you knew Jim like I do, you’d stay out of his way
I’ve known people who mess round but no one like him
and his mates on the staff are like me and our Jim

Happy Christmas V.T. Happy Christmas V.T.
Our Box of Delights shows this evening, last episode on Christmas Eve
Happy Christmas V.T. From the Festive 50
We borrowed a giant maggot puppet, from Colin Mapson on Doctor Who

See her knickers as she’s fleeing the Haemovore
It’s all on our Christmas tape on the cutting room floor
But if you turn away – I see a face…
He’d steal Christmas, but the boys win in tonight’s final episode
All gathered around, the floor staff can cheer
And we’ve found fun things for the party this year

Happy Christmas V.T. Happy Christmas V.T.
The Acton Hilton near Survival. We’ll have Jigsaw Log and Strato-bows
Happy Christmas V.T. From the Festive 50
We borrowed a giant maggot puppet, from Colin Mapson on Doctor Who
Happy Christmas V.T. From the Festive 50
In the days before the video, the Christmas schedule meant something
Happy Christmas V.T. Happy Christmas V.T.
Our Box of Delights shows this evening and God will bless us every one
