It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Everywhere you go That's where GoodGym comes in of course, with Bristol numbers in force Sorting donations and cleaning crates as they go

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Food surplus in the warehouse store But the prettiest sight to see, is at the Matthew Tree Where GoodGym helps food parcels go out the door

50 runners in red, to knock the jobs on the head Around the streets of Bristol Lining up tins and weighing all things Filling up a sandpit so the kids can dip their toes And Shona's got them doing lots of burpees outside again

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Everywhere you go We ran back along the cycle path, with another good deed in the bag Lighting up the pavement with our headtorches-a-glow

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas We'll see Matthew Tree in the new year And the thing that will make 'em ring is the extra GoodGymers we'll bring With a January challenge to turn our good up a gear

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas This year's group runs are no more But the prettiest sight to see is the Pieminster meal for fourty, Which Alice organised so we could all have mash-galore. Sure it's Christmas, once more
