I heard Chris Rea on my radio singing a lovely song
he made it home for Christmas I knew it wouldn't be long
Long I hear you say? We've been singing it for years
that M25, it just adds to all my fears
Countless Christmas's and numerous pints of beer have passed
he really can't have been driving all that fast
Do you think it was just one very long trip?
or did he have somewhere quick he had to nip?
He could have been driving home from Tesco's after getting all his grub
or he could be a long distance lorry driver ready for the tub
We really think he's still lost driving round and around
forever on that motorway, his life is now bound
I'm just not gonna worry it's a classy kinda song
when we get to mid September you'll be whistling along
You'll get all excited hearing his deep and hopeful tone
but I have just one wish this year Chris, just make it bloody home.
Today is about anything to do with my love of music.
