Nothing wrong with the lyrics mate!

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you
Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true
They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me
You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night
The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day
You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy ******
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last
The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing Galway Bay
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas day
I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you
The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing Galway Bay
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas day

Another load of old cunt. It is like painting a moustache on the Mona Lisa.
Music is expression, a play on words, leave it alone. It's a song about an alcoholic and Junkie- context. If it offends you, then switch the fucking thing off. When where the BBC appointed to censor or be offended on other peoples behalf?

I seem to remember that it's the ******* they object to. Having a ****** in the hole in the wall used to be so enjoyable. :grinning:

The sad thing is for every person saying the ban is complete bollocks, there will twice as many woke wankers lauding the beeb for their sensitivity.

I disagree. I think the majority of the country actually just laugh at this sort of bollocks, shrug their shoulders and get on with something more important. The woke mob are in the minority, for now at least, but are very vocal so it seems they are in a bigger gang than they actually are.

A bit like the Remoaners before they got a bloody nose last December.

I sincerely hope the majority do think it's comical. Bit like the pictures accompanying their Christmas articles, yesterday we had a black family having a 'traditional ' Christmas dinner, today it's an Asian family. Tomorrow will be same sex or disabled, anything but show a white family, after all why should our national broadcaster reflect over 80% of the population. Laughable institution, very sad in all honesty

The older I get the harder it is for me to get things into my head.
I’m not talking about dementia or anything like that I’m talking about trying to understand when we all went so fucking soft and namby pamby.
It’s difficult to say or do the right thing without someone having a meltdown.
So I’ve decided the best thing to do is carry on as before and if they don’t like it they can kiss my fat arse.
