Oxford Street, the Christmas rush has begun

Santa train

Christmas is for shopping and cover versions. Here’s an intergalactichiphoppunkrock cover by Dunproofin of the jingletastic Christmas Shoppers Paradise track by Carter USM all the way from 25 years ago.

Ground floor Shoppers’ Paradise
Habit-dashery, needles, spoons and knives
Knuckle-dusters, glass jaws and wooden hearts
Spend your money girls on sprays and lipsticks
Tested on bunnies, girls, strays and misfits
Ozone friendly rape alarms
For those blinding dates
Another summer of hate
It’s the top shop for the tired and rundown
Going up for the final comedown
First and second floors, third and fourth world wars
We’ve got a free pair of flares
With every hip replacement
Just take the stairs to the bargain basement
Babies bottles full ot the milk of human klnd nestle.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls
The big shop is open it’s a wonderful world
Top floor Shoppers’ Paradise
We’ve got a drunk Father Christmas and The Antichrist
We’ve got nothing of value so there’s no V.A.T.
We’re going S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G.
We take Visa, Access, American Express
Patched-up, hand-me-down, second to next best
Clothes for all ages, mothers and babies
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls
The big shop is open it’s a wonderful world
Going down for all the things you missed
All the love. peace and happiness that don’t exist
We’ve got enpsychopaedias we’ve got pic ‘n’ fix
A government freeer full of benefits
A children’s assortment we’re bigger than Hamleys
We’ve got Cabbage Patch orphans from Sylvanian Famllies
Carpets. Iinoleum, holy petroleum,
Chemi-kaze killers, little Hitlers and Napoleans
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls
The big shop is open and the world
Is wonderful
