Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger
Then another finger, then cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling
It lingers, then you forget
Oh-oh-oh, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide

They could at least do the man the honour of playing the original version and not this redacted/woke/sanitised version that has been plonked on us.

In 1991 I got very very long odds on Bohemian Rhapsody being Xmas no1 the afternoon Freddie Mercury died. The bloke in the bookies thought I was mad as it wasn't even on their radar and he had to call up to get odds. Probably the best fiver I ever spent.

I reckon the odds for "Fairytale" won't be as good by now.

1/3 with Betfair having been 4/1 yesterday.

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your [expletive deleted]
I pray God it's our last


Anyone offended?

Always thought that photo of me and Shane MacG at Glastonbury, circa 198whatever, 5 possibly, him holding a pint of clear liquid me looking not that much better than him, would be worth something one day, must fish it out.
