In the drunk tank
An old man said to me: "won't see another one."
And then they sang a song
"The Rare Old Mountain Dew"
I turned my face away and dreamed about you
Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I´ve got a feeling this year´s for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
Where all our dreams come true. They got cars big as bars
They got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It´s no place for the old
When you first took my hand on a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome, you were pretty
Queen of New York City
when the band finished playing they yelled out for more
Sinatra was swinging all the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner then danced through the night.
And the boys from the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out for Christmas day.

You're a bum you're a punk!
You're an old slut on junk!
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag you maggot!
You cheap lousy faggot!
Happy Christmas your arse I pray God it´s our last.

And the boys of the NYPD choir's still singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day.

I could have been someone...
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you...
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it out alone
I've built my dreams around you

And the boys of the NYPD choir's still singing Galway Bay
And the bells are ringing out

aloud with your partner. (tangible = actual "thing" that is able to be held) Indicator 1.2.4:
Comparing Texts of Varying Styles style the manner in which the author tells the story. mini-lesson: everybody has their own style: formal silly smooth lazy authoritative romantic detailed this is also true with writing angry writers choose their words carefully in order to express their personal style. listening excercise: pay attention to the word choice, dialogue, and punctuation to see how many different STYLES (or emotions) you can pick out of this little-known Christmas song. details! dialogue! slang! punctuation! sentence length! italics! etc. Madame
