Father Christmas   Kinks

[G]                                                   [C] 
When I was small I believed in Santa Claus
[G]'Though  I  knew  it  was  my  dad [D]
[G]And  I  would  hang  up  my  stocking  at  [C]Christmas
Open  my  presents  and I'd  be  glad [D]
[Em]But  the  last time  I  [Bm]played  Father Christmas
[Em] I  stood  outside  a  de[B]partment  store
[G]A  gang  of  kids  came  over  and  mugged  me
They  knocked  my  reindeer [D]to  the  floor, and  said
F[C]ather  [G]Christmas  [C]give  us  some  [G]money
[C]Don't  mess  a[G]round  with  those [C] silly  t[D]oys
[C]We'll beat  you  [G]up  if  you  [C]don't  hand  it  [G]over
[C]We  want  your  b[G]read  so  don't  m[C]ake  us  ann[D]oyed
[C]Give  all  the  toys[D]      
To  the  little  rich  b[G]oys
[C]   [D]    [G]   [C]   [D]

Don't give my brother a Steve Austin outfit
Don't give my sister a cuddly toy
We don't want no jigsaw or monopoly money
We only want the real McCoy
But give my daddy a job cause he needs one
He's got lots of mouths to feed
And if got one I'll take a machine gun
So I can scare all the kids on the street.

[C] [G] [C] [G]

F[C]ather  [G]Christmas  [C]give  us  some  [G]money
[C]Don't  mess  a[G]round  with  those [C] silly  t[D]oys
[C]We'll beat  you  [G]up  if  you  [C]don't  hand  it  [G]over
[C]We  want  your  b[G]read  so  don't  m[C]ake  us  ann[D]oyed
[C]Give  all  the  toys[D]      
To  the  little  rich  b[G]oys
[C] [D] [G] [C] [D]
[g]
And have yourself a merry merry Christmas
Have yourself a good [D]time
[G]But remember the kids who got nothin
As your drinking down your [D]wine

Father Christmas give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys
Father Christmas please hand it over
We'll beat you up if you make us annoyed

Father Christmas give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys
We'll beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread so don't make us annoyed
And give all the toys to e little rich boys.


Above is the basic arrangement of the song only. (I would recommend playing along with the song for the whole arrangement)

The "roots" of the chords are written, (You may need to change the f's, a's and e's to minor chords)
and u will hear the "c walkdown" change from c-b-a-g to c-e-a-g (during first verse)
