Robbie Williams’ songwriter Guy Chambers is aiming for Christmas number one with his X-rated holiday song, “Thank F*** It’s Christmas.”
The 59-year-old record producer is not holding back and is targeting the likes of Elon Musk and the government during the fraught Yuletide cut.
A mysterious singer, who goes by the name ‘Trickster’, sings: “Interest is rising fast
“There is monkeypox with COVID and SARS
And strange multi-billionaires with smooth faces
“Trying to build a house on Jupiter or Mars
“If this all looks so very, very bleak
“I’ll hold my head up and I’ll scream
“Thank f*** it’s Christmas.”
Guy said, “It was an interesting challenge to write a Christmas carol that captures the tensions and stresses we’re 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’s been great working with Guy Chambers, who is such a respected and legendary figure in the music business, and we hope this recording gets 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 addressing child welfare and social hunger throughout the month of December.
