I should have added anyone that might need to know, not just cars. If I'm crossing a road off a roundabout, if they're not indicating I'm crossing.

Shakin' Stevens for the line "It's the season love and understanding".

Of

The song is completely trashed by that omission.

I always thought it was in there but so clipped as to be almost inaudible. But there.

So I found a live version to see if it was more clear. Not only is there no "of" but he has also changed "love" to "hope". I have no idea why but I'd like to know.

Also, it's pretty obvious from the video that there is no "of". So yes, he can't be trusted.

Why "of" rather than "for"?

Maybe, but it at least needs something there.
