Come Home For Christmas

about

Three-time Australian Blues Music Award winners and Australian Roots Music Award nominees Blues Arcadia are wrapping up an eventful year and celebrating the release of their new single Come Home For Christmas.

Following the critical success of their 2019 album Carnival Of Fools the band were left with a suddenly empty dance-card in the second half of 2020 due to the ‘Rona, but ducked back into the studio as soon as lockdown eased. Amidst all the excitement of making music together again, they laid down a track that perfectly describes the delightful dysfunction of family gatherings at the most wonderful time of the year. It's a dirty-soul banger with the swagger, style and sensitivity that only Blues Arcadia can deliver.

So, put your name on the naughty list and let dirty-soul dilettantes Blues Arcadia put the plum in your plum pudding when you Come Home For Christmas this holiday season.

lyrics

When are you coming home for Christmas
I been waiting for so long
I'll put the turkey in the oven
I'll hang your stocking in the hall

And I've been counting down the days
Take an aeroplane, taxi and a train
(till you come)
A tree to decorate, icing on the cake
Presents on the sleigh
(will you come)
Home for Christmas
Home for Christmas

I've been cooking up for Christmas
(yes I have)
All the good things you desire
I'll put the plum in your plum pudding
Under the mistletoe tonight

And I've been counting down the days
Take an aeroplane, taxi and a train
(till you come)
A tree to decorate, icing on the cake
Presents on the sleigh
(will you come)
Home for Christmas
Home for Christmas
Home for Christmas and give your love to me

And I've been counting down the days
Take an aeroplane, taxi and a train
(till you come)
A tree to decorate, icing on the cake
Presents on the sleigh
(will you come)
Home for Christmas
Home for Christmas
Home for Christmas and give your love to me
