We'll have a merry Christmas
As long as you're not with us
'cus I'm not spending holidays with strangers anymore

Too many years I played along
Now I'm forced to write this melancholy Christmas song

Well you can keep your gifts this year
Cus money just can't buy that kind of love or Christmas cheer

And when I'm old and grey
I won't be thinkin' of my first 25 holidays.
