The Christmas dinner

Earlier we saw Levi-S passing by with his song 'Zwarte Piet', this time he made - in collaboration with us - the song 'The Christmas dinner'. A non traditional Christmas number about a Christmas dinner, where everything goes wrong. People are angry or sad from the table, in short, the whole Christmas dinner becomes a major disaster.
The song was written with a wink because (almost) everyone ever had a Christmas dinner that was less 'peaceful' than was desirable. In this song everything is put down again and again to put a smile (of recognition?) On your face.

We wish everyone a very peaceful Christmas dinner! And if it was a little less peaceful than you had hoped, turn this number and remember that it can always get worse ...

Lyrics The Christmas dinner

I look at the table for a moment
ten plates are ready
it is a festive whole
the food almost overcooked
The family is already inside
I quickly stir the soup
everyone is in a circle
Somewhere in a corner
are the presents ready
for each are two
What a great joy I am
at this peaceful Christmas dinner

Chorus
The Christmas dinner, the Christmas dinner
What are we still enjoying
at the Christmas dinner
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Join us in our Christmas dinner
Jesus, how nice it is
to our Christmas dinner

The candles are burning
the white colors outside
the speakers give Christmas music
as if the atmosphere is there
My aunt Truus begins
to bleat about the PVV
cousin Eef starts to growl
it does not go with it
He is even angry
my aunt quickly stripped
and is eaten for the soup
they have already left

Chorus
The Christmas dinner, the Christmas dinner
What are we still enjoying
at the Christmas dinner
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Join us in our Christmas dinner
Jesus, how nice it is
to our Christmas dinner

The soup is eaten hot
we are only eight
the lights are burning in the tree
we sing 'Silent night'
Everything seems to be going well now
then Ready gives a shout
she calls that she loves girls
the chaos is complete
Scare her parents
and scold their daughter
the door pops shut
now we are still five

Chorus
The Christmas dinner, the Christmas dinner
What are we still enjoying
at the Christmas dinner
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Join us in our Christmas dinner
Jesus, how nice it is
to our Christmas dinner

The turkey is ready
I'm cutting it
then Clazien suddenly calls out
that she prefers to divorce
She bursts out in whine
above the turkey
I feel uncomfortable
I do not know what to do
Her husband is standing up
and away is the harmony
he takes her outside
Now we are still three

Chorus
The Christmas dinner, the Christmas dinner
What are we still enjoying
at the Christmas dinner
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Join us in our Christmas dinner
Jesus, how nice it is
to our Christmas dinner

Come to the dessert
old cows from stable again
blame back and forth
it is a waterfall
Uncle Jaap swoops about time of service
and that it used to be better
but Auntie Jo is a pacifist
and hits him with her bag
The ice flies around
but she keeps hitting him
And it does not take long
before they leave the house
Only then will the silence sound again
in my heart and in my head
I give a last coffee
and drink it in peace

Chorus
The Christmas dinner, the Christmas dinner
I'm still enjoying it
to my Christmas dinner
Outside the world colors white
am the only one who is still at the table
The Christmas dinner is ready
Family seen again
goodbye, goodbye, until next year.
