FATHER CHRISTMAS                   Ray Davies


(The *G thru *D sequences could probably be played as something more
like:  G Bm7 Em D   G  Bm7 Em D - but it's all in the bass)

C G  C G   C G   C  G
G C D   G C D   G C D  G C D

*G
When  I  was  small  I  believed  in  Santa  Claus
                      *D
'Though  I  knew  it  was  my  dad
G
And  I  would  hang  up  my  stocking  at  Christmas
                         D
Open  my  presents  and  I'd  be  glad
Em                       Bm
But  the  last  time  I  played  Father  Christmas
Em                       B7
I  stood  outside  a  department  store
G  
A  gang  of  kids  came  over  and  mugged  me
                             D
They  knocked  my  reindeer  to  the  floor
            C      G          C               G
And  said  Father  Christmas  give  us  some  money
C             G                  C        D
Don't  mess  around  with  those  silly  toys
       C          G            C                G
We'll  beat  you  up  if  you  don't  hand  it  over
C                G                 C           D  
We  want  your  bread  so  don't  make  us  annoyed
                 C     D                       
Give  all  the  toys          -          
                        G   C  D   G  C  D
to  the  little  rich  boys

G
Don't  give  my  brother  a  Steve  Austin  outfit
                             D
Don't  give  my  sister  a  cuddly  toy
     G
We  don't  want  a  jigsaw  or  monopoly  money
                      D
We  only  want  the  real  Macoy
C       G          C              G
Father  Christmas  give  us  the  money
C                 G             C            D
We'll  beat  you  up  if  you  make  us  annoyed
C       G          C               G
Father  Christmas  give  us  some  money
C            G               C            D
Don't  mess  around  with  those  silly  toys
Em                       Bm
But  give  my  daddy  a  job  'cos  he  needs  one
Em                    B7
He's  got  lots  of  mouths  to  feed
G 
And  if  you've  got  one  I'll  have  a  machine  gun
                             D
So  I  can  scare  all  the  kids  on  the  street

About the artist behind Father Christmas Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
