BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1977

A. Front

“Father Christmas” is a 1977 single by English group The Kinks.

It tells of a department store Father Christmas who is beaten up by a gang of poor kids who tell him to give them money instead of toys, as toys are impractical; and asks that the toys be given “to the little rich boys.” At one point, a child asks the narrator to give his/her father a job for Christmas. The song failed to have any chart success in the UK or US.
