The Brexit Grinch Song

Today I went to the studio to record this year’s Brexmas song. After the success of last year’s spoof song – ‘All I Want For Xmas Is EU’, which clocked up 60K views on facebook – I decided I needed to go one better this year and write a completely original record.

The premise of the Brexit Grinch song is that Santa encounters endless problems at Xmas time as a result of Brexit; Flights being grounded over the UK, Rudolph’s EU pet passport being invlaid, etc. The point is to try and convey some of the many complications and difficulties that Brexit is going to cause that weren’t talked or thought about before the EU referendum. Many of these problems are only beginning to surface now, during the complex negotiation process and as the impacts of Brexit begin to materialise. It is absolutely crucial that we respond to this increasing information and understanding and it is our democratic right to express our views and have the possibility of changing our minds in light of this information.

The Brexit Grinch song is just another fun and entertaining way of communicating this message. Santa is from Lapland, when he comes to the UK to deliver presents, he is essentially a Finish immigrant and would require a visa after Brexit. Would his application be granted given the inconsistent nature of his seasonal work? And how long would it take for him to get through customs checks at the borders? Could he even deliver all the presents in time for Christmas day?

Asking people to think about these questions will hopefully make them think twice about our decision to leave the European Union. The recording of the song will be released in time for the Xmas charts along with another high quality music video that will be guaranteed to raise some laughs this year. If not anything else, the Remainers need festive entertainment such as this to keep their spirits up! The New Year beckons and we must remain optimistic! Merry Brexmas everyone!

The Brexit Grinch Song Lyrics

My Daddy told me not to fear, 

When the Brexit Grinch appeared this year, 

Don’t you worry now, It’ll all be fine, 

We can eat our christmas cake and drink our wine. 

 
 CHORUS: 

Santa Claus where did you go? 

Santa Claus, I’m out here in the snow, 

I’ve been waiting all night long, 

And i’m starting to think there’s something wrong! 

 

You need a visa now if you come from a different nation, 

But the Home Office has rejected Santa’s application, 

His work is seasonal, he labours in the frost,

He’s made his appeal, so keep your fingers crossed! 

 

CHORUS: 

Santa Claus where did you go? 

Santa Claus, I’m out here in the snow, 

I’ve been waiting all night long, 

And i’m starting to think there’s something wrong! 

 
 Rudolph is ready now, rigged up to the sleigh, 

He turns his nose light on and they’re on their way, 

But the border guards stop him with a sneer, 

Turns out his EU Pet Passport isn’t valid here! 

 

CHORUS: 

Santa Claus where did you go? 

Santa Claus, I’m out here in the snow, 

I’ve been waiting all night long, 

And i’m starting to think there’s something wrong! 

 
 Fly across the sky, high up in the night, 

On a Christmas Eve, it’s such a festive sight! 

But flights are grounded, over the UK, 

So Santa has to go on foot with his loaded sleigh 

 

CHORUS: 

Santa Claus where did you go? 

Santa Claus, I’m out here in the snow, 

I’ve been waiting all night long, 

And i’m starting to think there’s something wrong! 

 

It’s getting late, and Santa’s still not come, 

Looks like the Brexit Grinch has stolen all our fun! 

Santa’s been stopped again, for customs checks, 

They’re unwrapping all the presents, goodness knows what’s next! 

 

CHORUS: 

Santa Claus where did you go? 

Santa Claus, I’m out here in the snow, 

I’ve been waiting all night long, 

And i’m starting to think there’s something wrong! 

 

We can’t have our Christmas cake AND eat it, 

No, the Brexit Grinch must be defeated! 

So tell that Brexit grinch to go away! 

He’s not welcome here, no he can’t stay! 

The only Christmas gift I really want to have… 

Is my EU Citizenship and my passport back! 

 

CHORUS: 

Santa Claus where did you go? 

Santa Claus, I’m out here in the snow, 

I’ve been waiting all night long, 

And i’m starting to think there’s something wrong…

Like Brexit!
