Fairytale of New Cameras

Christmas is a peak time for burglars, and with fewer homes vacant over the festive period this year it’s likely they’ll take bigger risks than in the past.  Occupation is one of the biggest deterrents there is, but when you pop out for a Boxing Day stroll with the family it’s the perfect time for thieves to strike.  An intruder alarm can help scare off would-be robbers, but CCTV cameras will record evidence of what they look like (who they are), and what they have taken should you be the one that unfortunately gets burgled.  This got us thinking about some alternative lyrics for one of our favourite festive tunes, Fairytale of New York by The Pogues with Kirsty MacColl. We hope you enjoy it.

It was Christmas Eve here

And each and every home

Is packed with excitement

And scents of mulling wine

While outside in the cold

The burglars lay waiting by

For you to go to bed

And leave your doors unlocked

They’re scouting all the homes

Looking for cameras

A sign of a live alarm

Or an opened window frame

They’ll take some chances here

Maybe they’ll push their luck

If you’ve got CCTV

They’ll be caught right in the act

They’ve got crowbars and tools

They’ve got gloves and a mask

There’s no PPE here

These are tools of the trade

With a crafty quick knock

One your back door unlocked

They’ll be through it in seconds

And then, there’s your lot

Have a camera?

Have bright lights?

Have you locked all your doors?

Are the windows shut tightly?

Are the curtains all drawn?

Put your lights on a timer

And turn your cameras on

Make your home like a fortress

And sleep so soundly

The crew on the P&R Alarms team

Are working round the clock

And the bells are ringing out

From your alarm

You need lights

You need cameras

You need security systems

To cover all bases

Keep your family safe

We do this for business

We do this for you

We take pride in our work

And we love helping you

The crew on the P&R Alarms team

Are working round the clock

And the bells are ringing out

From your alarm

So get security cameras

Record the goings on

Be sure you’re covered

And no-one can slip past

A little red blinking light

Strikes fear for burglars

They’ll leave your home alone

And you can sleep tight at night

The crew on the P&R Alarms team

Are working round the clock

And the bells are ringing out

From your alarm

P & R Alarms would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.
