Fairytale of St Helens – song for Kaycee available to download

A group of singers from St Helens – including Kiera Weathers and former Stillia frontman Jack Bennett – joined forces to perform a song about the Borough in aid of brave six-year-old Kaycee Bradshaw who is fighting a terminal disease.

Kaycee is battling Batten Disease, a neurological condition that has affected her ability to walk, talk and will lead to childhood dementia.

At the Christmas light switch on in Church Square last Saturday, the performers, which also included songstress Olivia Parr, drummer Matty Bennet, singer James Erlam, performed Fairytale of St Helens, inspired by The Pogues’ Fairytale of New York.

The lyrics:

It was Christmas Eve babe
In St. Helens town
An old man said to me
Be what you want to be
So then I sang a song
And got the words all wrong
I just want to make you smile
And do thing KG style

Now I’m the lucky one
To sing for everyone
I got a feeling this years for everyone

So happy Christmas
I love St. Helens
I can see some better times
Where all our dreams come true

We’ve got Costa’s a plenty
Pubs filled with real ales
An army of pensioners
Just wait for the sales

When you first take a stroll
Round our St. Helens town
You’ll see Johnny Wellies
He’ll call you a clown
He is old
He is funny
The guys got no money
When you see him you’ll realise the legend he is

Saints fans are singing
our team must be winning
We scored in the corner
And then kicked the goal

The Fans in the totally wicked ground
Are singing c’mon on you saints
And the bells are ringing out for Christmas time

We drink rum
We drink gin
It’s the best town I’ve been
We’re lucky to live here
We’re saints and we’re proud

This town is contagious
Just ask Johnny Vegas
Merry Christmas St. Helens
Be sure to stay safe

Rpt the fans in the totally

I should go out tonight
In fact I think I might
Come join me for a jar
I’ll be at the bar
In my local pub
Then Genos for some grub
A taxi home for me
ill go to A to B

Rpt the fans in the totally wicked
