Track Name: Every Year We Change
we wait at the bottom of the stairs, my big sister and I

And old green ladder flecked with paint - - lies idly by

Waiting for my Dad to come and disappear

into the loft to find our boxes of christmas chee -er er



Every year we change, but we keep some things the same

the santa for the tree that's old and frayed

Every year we change, but we keep some things the same

reminding us of joy from yesterday



A dusty happy ritual as the the boxes are passed down

A kaleidescope of tinsel comes crashing to the ground

We 3 kings of shawclough drive, with glitter in our hair,

Run laughing to the kitchen to our mum who's standing there


Every year we change, but we keep some things the same

the santa for the tree that's old and frayed

Every year we change, but we keep some things the same

reminding us of joy from yesterday
Track Name: The Shoot-out at the Shawclough Coral
It's Dad in the kitchen and Auntie at the table

Who will get their fill of treasured vitals?

I cant look, I push the paper hat down over my eyes

It's the shoot out at the Shawclough Coral



Steely eyed they stair across the crossman christmas table

Reaching for the China Pot the atmosphere unstable

Tensions ripping through the air as Autie piles the parsnips high

It's the shoot out at the Shawclough Coral


A year has passed since aunty won the first round of the war

Dad responds by stockpiling, cooking even more

parsnips for the table, but she's equal to the task

It's the shoot out at the Shawclough Coral


Another christmas dinner gone and we all feel on edge

For this year there seems to be a surplus of root veg!

For aunty passed away this year, and we'll sadly have some peace

It's the shoot out at the Shawclough Coral
