(Riff 1)
Hello Dan, it's Joe here

 I hope you're keeping well

 Its the 21st of December

 now theyre ringing the last bell

(Riff 2)
 if I get good behaviour

 I'll be out of here by July

(Riff 1)
 Won't you kiss my kids on Christmas day

 Pleeeease don't let them cry for me

Break (Continue Riff 1)

(Riff 1)
 I guess the brothers are driving down from Queensland

 and Stella's flying in from the coast

 They say it's gonna be a hundred degrees, even more maybe,

 but that won't stop the roast

(Riff 2)
 Who's gonna make the gravy now?

 I bet it won't taste the same
[ Tab from: ]
(Riff 1)
Just add flour, salt, a little red wine and don't forget a dollop of
 tomato sauce for sweetness and that extra tang

 And give my love to Angus and to Frank and Dolly,

 Tell 'em all I'm sorry I screwed up this time

 And look after Rita, I'll be thinking of her early Christmas morning

 When I'm standing in line

 I hear Mary's got a new boyfriend, I hope he can hold his own

 Do you remember the last one? What was his name again?

 (Just a little too much too cologne)

(Riff 2)
 And Roger, you know I'm even gonna miss Roger

 'Cause there's sure as hell no one in here I want to fight

(Riff 1)
 Oh praise the Baby Jesus, have a Merry Christmas,

 I'm really gonna miss it, all the treasure and the trash

 And later in the evening, I can just imagine,

 You'll put on Junior Murvin and push the tables back

 And you'll dance with Rita, I know you really like her,

 Just don't hold her too close, oh brother please don't stab me in the

 I didn't mean to say that, it's just my mind it plays up,

 Multiplies each matter, turns imagination into fact

 You know I love her badly, she's the one to save me,

 I'm gonna make some gravy, I'm gonna taste the fat

 Tell her that I'm sorry, yeah I love her badly, tell 'em all I'm

 And kiss the sleepy children for me

 You know one of these days, I'll be making gravy,

 I'll be making plenty, I'm gonna pay 'em all back.
