About the album: The hits that The Kinks scored in the '60s are the stuff of legend, but in America, the band's '70s-'80s stint on Arista Records was actually a bigger commercial success. Текст песни: When I was small I believed in Santa Claus Though I knew it was my dad And I would hang up my stocking at Christmas Open my presents and Id be glad. Father Christmas is a 1977 single by the English group The Kinks. It tells of a department store Father Christmas who is beaten up by a gang of poor kids who tell him to give them money instead of toys, as toys are impractical and asks that the toys be given to the little rich boys. At one point, a child asks the narrator to give hisher father a job for Christmas-or, if he must deliver a toy, a machine gun. 1977 Kinks Properties Limited under exclusive license to Sony Music Entertainment.
