Wrote this song way back in 2010, won the UK songwriting contest with it in 2011 and released it under the pseudonym 'Jimmer' in the same year.
Many thanks to my awesome big brother, Billy Curtis who produced it

lyrics

Got the card that you sent
It's all tattered and bent
Where I fished it back out of the bin
And beneath our old tree
There's no present for me
Just a bottle of Dry London Gin
And I wonder if you ever think of the two of us
Now that you're living with him

And I hope you have a Bloody Good Xmas

Well the speech from the Queen
And the movies I've seen before
Just served to widen the hole
So I finished my beer
And in an effort to cheer myself
Went for a leisurely stroll
But my maudlin feet took me back to the boozer and
Ushered me in from the cold

And I hope you have a Bloody Good Xmas
And I hope you have a Bloody Good Xmas

And it beggars belief what a hollow relief you can gain
From a double or four
When the morning still brings with it yesterday's sting
As you're scraping yourself off the floor

Tell the kids I'm okay
But there isn't a day that goes by
When I don't miss them so
And I'm glad that you're well
And I hope your new fella forgives me
For breaking his nose
Cos I'm almost resigned to the whole grand design of it
Reaping the harvest I've sown
A door opens when one has been closed
Yeah

And I hope you have a Bloody Good Xmas
And I hope you have a Bloody Good Xmas
And I hope you have a Bloody Good Xmas
And I hope you have a Bloody Good Xmas
And a happy New Year
