The Rutles "Dear Father Christmas"

The full Christmas tune.

"Dear Father Christmas" is a song which Ron Nasty recorded in 1968. While the lyrics describe it as a "Christmas single," it was ultimately vetoed and was released solely on that year's Christmas record sent out to fan-club members. The song is something of a protest anthem, juxtaposing Christmas imagry with reminders of chaos in the world, very similar to "End Bad Things (if you want to)".

The song was re-released, finally, on The Rutles: Vast Bastards.
