HALLELUJAH (SORT OF)
Oh Chris Hoy you are the man
You've done things that no other can
You won three golds, but surely that''ll do ya?
That'll do ya, that'll do ya, that'll do ya, that'll do-oo-oo ya.
Hey Rebecca Adlington
We're all so glad that you swum
To two golds and a pair of Jimmy Choo-sa
Jimmy Choo-sa, Jimmy Choo-sa, Jimmy Choo-sa, Jimmy Choo-oo-oo sa.
Lewis Hamilton you're ace
You might not have won every race
Still, nice to know Alonso is a loser
Is a loser, is a loser, is a loser, is a lo-oo-oo-ser.
Cristiano take a bow
The things you did made us go wow!
The ladies loved you 'cos you're such a schmoozer
Such a schmoozer, such a schmoozer, such a schmoozer, such a schmoo-oo-oo-zer.
So join me as we sing this song
A year when Brits could do no wrong
A very merry happy Christmas to ya
Christmas to ya, Christmas to ya, Christmas to ya, Christmas to-oo-oo ya.
As you can see from my icon, The Stig is not fantastically impressed. I think it's definitely right that Chris Charles (the guy who wrote the alternative song) did say: "I send my deepest apologies in advance to Leonard Cohen, the late, great Jeff Buckley and that other girl who's taken to singing it of late - her name escapes me."
