Thin Lizzy & Sex Pistols (The Greedies) – A Merry Jingle and a Happy New Year

I love this song, and Phil Lynott’s amazing Irish accent. He collaborated with the Sex Pistols. It was actually the Greedy Bastards but the BBC believing that the USA was too loose with their free way of speech,  wouldn’t play it, so Greedies is what they were called.  Released in the 70s, this was and still is a nice song for Christmas and New Years!

 Lyrics – 

We wish you a merry Xmas x 3
And a happy new year!
We wish you a merry Xmas x 3
And a happy new year!

Jingle bells, Jingle jangle
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh
Hey! x 4

We wish you a merry Xmas x 3
And a happy new year!

Jingle bells, Jingle jangle
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh
Hey! x 2

Oh what fun it is to ride
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Sleigh! Hey!

We wish you (all the best for Xmas)
We wish you a merry Xmas
And a happy new year
And a happy new
New
Year!
