Sportsong of the Week #30


"Merry Christmas Everybody"

Slade (covered by QPR players)

1973

Ok, so this is not a sportsong in the sense of a song about sports. But because of it being christmas I could not let this find go unshown to you guys. Sportsong of the Week #30 is the single 'Merry Xmas Everybody' by glamrock band Slade, performed, or rather lip synced by the players of football club QPR in 2014.

Then coach Harry Redknapp was clearly in a festive spirit when he decided that the players and staff were gonna create a special rendition of this legendary christmas song. And the result is brilliant! It's clear some players are more comfortable than others haha!

So happy holidays everybody! Drink, eat, sing and smile!

And here is the original performed by Slade:

Full lyrics "Merry Christmas Everybody" - Slade

Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall It's the time that every Santa has a ball Does he ride a red nosed reindeer Does a ton-up on his sleigh Do the fairies keep him sober for a day. So here it is Merry Christmas Everybody's having fun Look to the future now, It's only just begun. Are you waiting for the family to arrive Are you sure you got the room to spare inside Does your granny always tell ya That the old songs are the best Then she's up and rock and rollin' with the rest. So here it is Merry Christmas Everybody's having fun Look to the future now It's only just begun. What will your daddy do when he sees Your mama kissin' Santa Claus Ah ah Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall Are you hoping that the snow will start to fall Do you ride on down the hillside In a buggy you have made When you land upon your head Then you been slayed. So here it is Merry Christmas Everybody's having fun Look to the future now It's only just begun.
