about

Every Year Dad and Auntie would fight over the parsnips. Being a sensitive soul, I couldn't watch. Until one year . . .

lyrics

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
