The Pukes Christmas single



Why’ve I got my ex for Christmas
He’s the ghost of Christmas past
He’s come round to see the kids
Now I can’t get rid
Why’ve I got my ex for Christmas

Him and his beer belly
Sat in front of my telly
Hogging the remote
Snoring through Home Alone
Eating all my mince pies
It’s just like old times
He’s drunk and the kids are bored
I remember why we got divorced

He’s always late of course
Hungover from the night before
He’s had a row with Aunty May
He’ll still be here on Boxing Day

You put the ex into Xmas
You bring the past to the presents
Yes it’s the forgiving season
But you’re an ex for a reason
Welcome as a soggy sprout
Shut the door on your way out

La la la la

Why’ve I got my ex for Christmas


released December 11, 2015
Words and music by Clara Wiseman
Recorded by Pat Collier at Perry Vale Studios

The pUKEs London, UK

The Pukes are a punk ukulele group who play songs by the likes of Dead Kennedys, Exploited, Xray Spex, The Clash, etc like you never heard ‘em before – as well as original tunes.

In the early years there might be up to 20 Pukes on stage, but as the band evolved from a mass ukulele group into a touring band they slimmed down to 5.

The Pukes are on hiatus at the mo...but never say never!
