Warren McCabe-Smith stars in The Black Country Christmas Song

A group of lads from Cradley Heath have produced a music video featuring a Black Country take on The Twelve Days of Christmas song.

This version features lyrics such as three bags of taters, two lovely faggots and a bostin cup o tay.

The festive track is a follow-up to their Black Country Alphabet Song which was an internet hit in 2008.

In total it took 20 minutes to write, two hours to record and a further five hours to film the video.

"We just wanted to do something Christmassy," says vocalist and star Warren McCabe-Smith.

"We're not expecting it to do as well as The Black Country Alphabet Song but we're not comparing them. We just wanted to make something fun for the kids."
