This is an acoustic live version of Joe Casey's St. Stephen's Day.


The rain is falling down again another year
On St. Stephen's day
The turkey and the ham are cold
I've always felt that they taste best that way
Santa in his Coca Cola Suit
Is sleeping in his sleigh
He will sleep for a couple weeks
But he's waking up much earlier each year

Now the kids are bored with all the toys
That they got yesterday
And ring-a-ring-a-rosy
Is their favourite game today
Mama's trying to get some rest
She's too tired to play
And we're all tired of Christmas
On St. Stephen's Day

I'm so sick of chocolate now
That I can hardly breath
It's pushed out all my Christmas cheer
With all the other things I didn't need
I'm too full to eat another bite
As the morning fades away
And the day it slowly melts into the night
Now I'm going out to play

Now I'm probably going to take a drop
And I'll meet all my old friends
Now that the day is over
And the night is here again
And we'll talk about the good times
And our friends who've gone away
How the best thing about Christmas
Is St. Stephen's Day.
