about

UK based singer-songwriter Casimir Greenfield first released 'A Good Old Fashioned Christmas' in 2013 when it also supported 'The Big Issue' - the global charity to help homeless folk find their way back into employment and shelter.

This re-issue comes complete with a vintage look 'sepia' tone with enhanced audio.

Greenfield is finalising the forthcoming album 'Boy in the Attic' due for a 2016 release, so the Christmas song is a timely reminder that things are stirring in the Greenfield camp.

words and music David Ireland

Ho Ho Ho Ho!

Do you wish you had a stash of cash to blow?
Well, we're all in the same boat – who’s got the dough?
So come on buck the trend
We can all make do and mend
Just dust off last year’s trimmings - who’s to know?

And does it feel as if your back's against the wall?
Well, it’s the Christmas thoughts that count, however small
Forget those winter blues, don't stand shivering in the queues
Cause peace and understanding is the greatest gift of all

Let’s have a Good Old Fashioned Christmas
With sleigh bells in the snow
A Good Old Fashioned Christmas
Like the ones we used to know
Peace and understanding is the greatest gift of all
So let’s all have a Good Old Fashioned Christmas

Do you wish that you could ride on Santa’s sleigh?
And leave your cares and worries far away
Well, we all hold the key to set the world free
So let’s lend the hand of friendship everyday.

At Christmas there's no room
For all that gloom and doom
The newsman gives us every blooming day
Just go that extra mile
And in a little while your Christmas smile will twinkle all the way!

Let’s have a Good Old Fashioned Christmas
With sleigh bells in the snow
A Good Old Fashioned Christmas
Like the ones we used to know
Peace and understanding is the greatest gift of all
So let’s all have a Good Old Fashioned Christmas

and the choir sang...
Let's all have a Good Old Fashioned Christmas-time for everyone
Let's all give the greatest gift...
