Oh My Word It's Christmas Time Again

"I heard this song on the radio the other day and I knew it sounded familiar. I have it videoed on my phone from last Xmas at my local pub in Tostock. I know two of the guys from a band called Walkway. The audio from my phone is shocking so I boshed on the proper song. It so nearly fits."

Composers: Jim Reid & Rupert Matthews
