It was the day before Christmas, and all round the track.
The lads were racing, James May at the back.
Tyre' were squealing, and engines were hot.
Going around Hammerhead, with all the power they got.
When all of a sudden, Jezza spied a Stig.
In his rear view mirror, wearing Barrichello's wig.
After passing May and up Hammond's rear end,
He shifted into top gear and took him on the bend.
With just Jeremy to pass, and cross the line.
He cut the corner, To save some time.
Coming up to Gambon, they were neck and neck.
When all of a sudden, James May from the back.
Drifted between the middle of the two, and the sign of the loser, he got to do.
