THE DAMNED : THERE AIN’T NO SANITY CLAUSE [MUSIC FOR CHRISTMAS TIME]

…Άντε να τελειώνουμε με τη φετεινή παρωδία Χριστουγέννων – χωρίς καμία βεβαιότητα ότι του χρόνου δεν θα είναι ακόμα χειρότερα… Υπάρχει αυτό το τραγουδάκι των Damned από το 1980, ιδανικό για την περίσταση.
…OK, let’s end with this year’s
Christmas charade – without any certainty that the next one won’t be even worse… There is this little number by the Damned, from 1980, perfect for the occasion.

Rabies got the scabies now he’s down on all fours
Hasn’t helped his drumming, changing hands for paws
Afraid he’s quarantined, means no more foreign tours
Ah ha, there ain’t no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Vanian had a visit from a guy named Drac
Says he’s from the blood bank wants his ten pints back
Singer’s rather sickly, when it rains it pours
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
Did you expect that I would believe
The tale you told last Christmas Eve
About the man
That man is fat and round
Delivers gifts without a sound
Here comes uncle Nick
Let’s give him some stick
Here comes uncle Nick
Let’s give him some stick
Captain’s out of order ’cause he thinks he’s Jaws
Biting lady punters on the Norfolk Broads
Paul plays the bass he’s just debased that’s all
Oh no, there ain’t no sanity clause
There ain’t no sanity clause

    …Well, I’d learned about this, as a boy, …through the Damned song, famously inspired by it!
