"Father Christmas" is a 1977 single by English group The Kinks. While it failed to chart upon release, it has grown in popularity and is a Christmas staple on some radio stations. It tells the story of a department store Santa Claus who is beaten up by a gang of poor kids who tell him to give them money instead of toys.
When I was small I believed in Santa Clause
Though I knew it was my dad
And I would hang up my stocking at Christmas
Open my presents and I'd be glad
