Song Lyrics

Bells will be ringing this sad sad New Years
Oh what a Christmas to have the blues
My baby’s gone I have no friends
To wish me greetings once again

Cries will be singing Silent Night
Christmas carols by candle light
Please come home for Christmas
Please come home for Christmas
If not for Christmas by New Years night

Friends and relations send salutations
Sure as the stars shine above
But this is Christmas yes Christmas my dear
The time of year to be with the ones you love

So won’t you tell me you’ll never more roam
Christmas and new Years will find you home
There’ll be no more sorrow no grief and pain
And I’ll be happy, happy once again

Oh there’ll be no more sorrow, no grief and pain
And I’ll be happy, Christmas once again.
