Please Come Home For Christmas - lyrics
Bells will be ringing the sad, sad news
Oh what a Christmas to have the blues
My baby's gone, I have no friends
To wish me greetings once again
Choirs will be singin' 'Silent Night'
Christmas carols by candlelight
Please come home for Christmas
Please come home for Christmas
If not for Christmas by New Year's night
Friends and relations send salutation
Sure as the stars shine above
But this is Christmas, yes Christmas my dear
It's the time of year to be with the one you love
So won't you tell me you'll never more roam?
Christmas and New Year will find you home
There'll be no more sorrow, no grief and pain
And I'll be happy, happy once again
Ooh, there'll be no more sorrow, no grief and pain
And I'll be happy Christmas once again
