Robbie Williams’ songwriter Guy Chambers is aiming for Christmas number one with his X-rated festive song, ‘Thank F*** It’s Christmas’.
The 59-year-old record producer doesn’t hold back, taking aim at the likes of Elon Musk and the government on the loaded Yuletide cut.
A mystery vocalist, who goes by the name ‘Trickster’, sings: “Interest rates are rising fast
“There’s monkeypox with COVID and SARS
“And strange smooth faced multi-billionaires
“Trying to build a house on Jupiter or Mars
“When all this looks so very, very bleak
“I’ll hold my head up and I’ll shriek
“Thank f*** it’s Christmas.”
Guy said: “It was an interesting challenge to write a Christmas song that reflects the tensions and stresses that we are currently living under, but with ‘Thank F*** It’s Christmas’ I think we’ve achieved it.”
Ian Maclay of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra added: “It was great to work with Guy Chambers who is such a respected and legendary figure in the music business, and we hope that this recording receives the attention it deserves.”

A clean version called ‘Praise Be It’s Christmas’ has also been released.
Money raised from the songs will benefit charities tackling child welfare and social hunger throughout the month of December.
