As a young lad christmas was sad My mum was poor as we dreamed of more

Never tried to write a poem please be nice ⛄️🎄🌧😉

As a young lad christmas was sad

My mum was poor as we dreamed of more

The tv was rented and black and white

We needed to fill it with coins each night

Coronation street was her favourite

Grangehill was mine and if it ran out we knew we had nowt

our bedrooms were cold and lots of mould

the windows frozen and frames full of holes

When she asked us what you want santa to bring

We told her were not bothered about a thing

And knew she didnt have money for anything

As a young lad christmas was sad

My brothers and sister we had a step dad

He was nasty and cruel which made us mad

Mum tried her best for all we had

Christmas was hard but with loads of cards

From school friends to family is we had

As a young lad christmas was sad

With snow outside and holes in the boots

Socks too small or none at all

If we played out we'd have frozen bones

So i used breadbags and wiggled my toes

Fingers so numb my nose so cold

Building snowmen i was really too cold for

As a young lad christmas was sad

Mum worked four jobs to help feed our gobs

I dont know how but she always suprised us

Each christmas morning we had more than we wished for

From a madness album and record player

a new set of clothes a new pair of boots

To a big bag of toy soldiers

How much she spent she never told us

As a young lad christmas was sad

Now ive grown older i know it wasnt so bad

My mum gave us all that she ever had

Thank you mum x
