No Xmas for John Quays

The Fall

The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy." more »

No Christmas for John Quays
Come on get a bit of fucking guts into it
What what
Well the powders reach you

And the powders teach you
But when you find they can't reach you
There is no Christmas for junky
He thinks he is

More interesting
Than the world
Ah but five fags
Puts him in a whirl

I'll have a packet of three-five fives
You fucking full of money or something for Christ's sake?
I'll have a packet of three-five fives
I'll have 20 of those over there

I'll have 20 No.6 for a headache
And I've had enough right there, stop
(Why is this)
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah

He spits in the sky
It falls in his eye
And then he gets to sitting
Talking to his kitten

Talking about Frankie Lymon
Tell me why is it so?
Tell me why is it so?
Why did the sky break today?

Why did this happen today?
He gets out of his face with the Idle Race
He gets out of the room with this tune
Although the skins are thin

He knows its up to him
To go out or stay in
I'll stay in
I'll stay in

Have a break
You
Me
X-Mas

X-Mas
Well the powders reach you
And the powders teach you
But when you find they can't reach you

There is no Christmas for junky
There is no girls
Just the traffic passing by
Bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye

Open the room, there's a cloud of smoke
Will you fucking get it together instead of showing off?
Give me one
Give me be

Give me three
Give me D
No X-mas for John Quays
