Watch Daniel Zeichner and Lewis Herbert sing Brexit version of Slade’s Merry Christmas Everybody at Mill Road Winter Fair
It is what you might call a long shot for the Christmas number one.
Labour parliamentary candidate Daniel Zeichner and city council leader Lewis Herbert performed a stirring rendition of the Slade classic Merry Christmas Everybody at the Mill Road Winter Fair on Saturday - with the lyrics given the full Brexit treatment.
‘So here it is, Merry Brexit… And there’s no one having fun,’ the pair crooned to the amusement/horror of passers-by.
Mr Zeichner, who is hoping to hold on to Cambridge at Thursday’s General Election, will be hoping he’s more in tune with voters.
The lyrics (in case you want to sing along...)
So here it is, Merry Brexit... And there's no one having fun
Are we banging our poor heads against the wall?
It’s the time Jacob Rees-Mogg thinks is a ball
Does his nanny always tell him
That the old songs are the best?
So he’s humming Rule Britannia in his vest
So here it is, Merry Brexit
And there’s no one having fun
Look to the future, how?
Have People’s vote to truly Get Brexit Done
The duo also tackled an alternative version of The Monkees’ I’m a Believer, telling the audience: ‘We are remainers!’
