My Christmas austerity song.

I’m no songwriter mad I don’t claim to be. This is my version of feed the world….. Sung to the same tune. It might not be the best but the sentiment is there. Enjoy.
It’s Christmas time, it’s time to be afraid,
At Christmas time we get more sanctions and live in shame,
And in our world of plenty we can’t spread a smile of joy,
Throw your hearts out to the poor at Christmas time.

But say a prayer, pray for the ATOS victims,
At Christmas time, it’s hard when you can’t heat or eat,
There’s a world outside your window,
And it’s a world of dread and fear,
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears,

And the bailiff knocks that don’t stop,
Are the clanging sounds of doom.

Well tonight thank god it’s them instead of you?

And there won’t be joy in most houses this Christmas time.
The greatest gift they’ll get this year is hope,
Oh, where the worry always grows, and the hunger never ends.
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

Here’s to you – sleeping on the streets,
Here’s to you- with not enough to eat,
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

Feed the poor, let them know it’s Christmas time,
Help the reform victims,
Let them know it’s Christmas time again.

This is dedicated to every victim of this governments evil regime. Long may the dead be remembered and let us fight against this cruel, harsh government.

  1. Hi Charlotte! Much better than the original. I wonder if any celebrities would volunteer to sing this? Are you able to make the boycottworkfare meeting in Manchester tomorrow? 2pm Sandbar, Gosvenor street. Would be great to see you there. Liam from the Anachist Bookfare.

    1. I hope I am able to come. I’m scratching around for work at the mo and if there’s a chance of a few hours work I will have to take it. Have you got a contact email or anything that I can get in touch with you for leaflets etc. I handed out lots yesterday. I don’t know any celebrities and there might be problems with royalties if I got someone to sing it. I wanted to do a video along with it. But it’s just a dream. I’m too skint to pay for anything. Hope your well and I’m. Going to do my best to get there. You do fantastic work.
