Coldplay Gift Australia New Song ‘Christmas With The Kangaroos’

Coldplay has gifted Australia a brand new Christmas song called ‘Christmas With The Kangaroos’.

“Coming to Australia is such a treat so it’s time we wrote a song specifically for Australia,” Chris Martin told the Sydney audience.

The lyrics

“Well have you ever stopped to wonder,
How they do Christmas Day Down Under,
How do they make Christmas nice,
When they got no snow and ice,
And what about poor Santa’s sleigh,
He has to come from fucking miles away,
And what about poor Mick Dundee,
For he ain’t got no Christmas tree,
Well they say Christmas here is much more fun,
We’ve got surfing, we got sun,
Christmas here is sweet as a peach,
Open presents on the beach,
We’ve got barbies, we’ve got beer,
Santa wishes he lives here,
Loads of laughter, loads of booze,
Christmas with the Kangaroos”

A little later:

“Do you wander where Jesus was,
When you’ve got Kylie and Shane Warne”

The Sydney show was the last night on the Australian tour for Coldplay.
