    I do like the Jethro Tull piece!
    Can't say I had ever heard it before.

    they did a whole Xmas album a few years back, though some of the songs were originally recorded for ealier albums. Christmas Song was on Living in the Past and maybe a b-side from a single or something ealier. I also like this one by Tull...also on the Christmas album, but originally on Songs from the Wood.

    This is my all time favorite.

    Here's another version with Jethro Tull and the choir of St. Bride's Church in London, England.



    And if you like it a bit on the heavy side, here's The Kinks; with lyrics



    When I was small I believed in santa claus
    Though I knew it was my dad
    And I would hang up my stocking at christmas
    Open my presents and I'd be glad

    But the last time I played father christmas
    I stood outside a department store
    A gang of kids came over and mugged me
    And knocked my reindeer to the floor

    They said:
    Father christmas, give us some money
    Don't mess around with those silly toys.
    Well beat you up if you don't hand it over
    We want your bread so don't make us annoyed
    Give all the toys to the little rich boys

    Don't give my brother a steve austin outfit
    Don't give my sister a cuddly toy
    We don't want a jigsaw or monopoly money
    We only want the real mccoy

    Father christmas, give us some money
    Well beat you up if you make us annoyed
    Father christmas, give us some money
    Don't mess around with those silly toys

    But give my daddy a job cause he needs one
    Hes got lots of mouths to feed
    But if youve got one, I'll have a machine gun
    So I can scare all the kids down the street

    Father christmas, give us some money
    We got no time for your silly toys
    Well beat you up if you don't hand it over
    Give all the toys to the little rich boys

    Have yourself a merry merry christmas
    Have yourself a good time
    But remember the kids who got nothin
    While you're drinkin down your wine

    Father christmas, give us some money
    We got no time for your silly toys
    Well beat you up if you don't hand it over
    We want your bread, so don't make us annoyed
    Give all the toys to the little rich boys
