Robbie Williams tavaly megjelent tizenkettedik albumához kapcsolódóan idén novemberben jelent meg kislemezként ez a dal. Izgalmas és fülbemászó, és nagyon aktuális.

The Christmas Present is the 12th studio album by British singer-songwriter Robbie Williams, and his first studio album since 2016’s The Heavy Entertainment Show. It was released on 22 November 2019, and features guest appearances from Tyson Fury, Rod Stewart, Jamie Cullum, Helene Fischer and Bryan Adams.
Williams began recording the album in June 2019, just before the final leg of his Wynn Las Vegas residency, and concluded in Vancouver in October 2019. Williams joked that he was going to call the album Achtung Bublé, a play on words of the U2 album “Achtung Baby”, and in reference to Michael Bublé’s “monopoly” on the Christmas music market, which he said “must end now.

”Time for Change” was released as the album’s official lead single on 22 November 2019.

The album’s second single ”Can’t Stop Christmas” was released on 20 November 2020.

 

Can’t Stop Christmas

“Oh, what a miserable year

But what a time to be alive

1.Sadly some friends disappeared

It’s never been like this before

2.It feels like we’re at war

3.So I wonder who’s gonna decide

If we can do the Auld Lang Syne

4.I wish that I could do what I like

With this family of mine

We’re going out of our minds

So what are we to do

5.About your FaceTimes and your Zooms?

There’s a room inside my mind

And it’s always here for you

Nothing’s gonna stop Christmas…

No chance

6.You can’t take away our season

Like you can’t take away the wine

Santa’s on his sleigh

7.But now he’s two metres away

The people gonna need something to believe in

8.After a year of being in

We’ve got a wish list

You can’t stop Christmas time

If you’re wondering what I’d like

9.Socks and sanitiser will do fine

10.I guess you do your shopping online

The high street lights are out

11.There’s nobody about

So where will we all be

Come this time next year?

I know you’ll be with me

And I’ll be here

Nothing’s gonna take Christmas…

You can’t take away our season

Like you can’t take away the wine

Santa’s on his sleigh

But now he’s two metres away

The people gonna need something to believe in

After a year of being in

We’ve got a wish list

You can’t stop Christmas

Why, oh why are we all waiting?

12.The whole damn world anticipating

Beyond boredom past frustration

13.The planet’s locked in what if’s and maybe’s

You can’t take away our season

Like you can’t take away the wine

Let’s lie to Santa Claus

14.Tell him it’s nineteen-eighty-four

The people gonna need something to believe in

After a year of being in

We’ve all missed this

So here’s our wish list

You can’t stop Christmas time!”

15.one of his fans commented about the song: „After the year we all have had, you can’t ”Take That” away from us!!”
