Lyrics I HEAR SLEIGH BELLS RINGING,
BUT I HAVEN'T HEARD
A WORD FROM YOU
IN YEARS.
I HEAR SLEIGH BELLS RINGING,
BUT I HAVEN'T HEARD
A WORD FROM YOU
IN YEARS;
OH, I HEAR A CHOIR SINGING
AND I'M SITTING HERE CRYING
CHRISTMAS TEARS.

EVERYBODY SINGING MERRY CHRISTMAS
AS THEY WATCH
THE STARRY SKIES
FILLED WITH REINDEERS,
EVERYBODY SINGING MERRY CHRISTMAS
AS THEY WATCH
THE STARRY SKIES
FILLED WITH REINDEERS;
OH, I'M SMILING
ON THE OUTSIDE
BUT ON THE INSIDE
I'M CRYING
CHRISTMAS TEARS.

THOUGH YOU'VE BEEN GONE
FOR A LONG LONG TIME,
ITS CHRISTMAS
AND I CANT GET YOU
OFF MY MIND;
IT SEEMS
SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE
LIKE A HUNDRED YEARS OR MORE,
BUT IF YOU WERE HERE
WITH ME
I COULD HANG
CHRISTMAS ON MY DOOR.

I NEED YOU DARLING
TO HOLD ME TIGHT,
I NEED YOU DEAR
ON THIS CHRISTMAS NIGHT.
AS I SIT AND THINK
OF THE LONELY YEARS,
I CAN'T HELP BUT CRY
CHRISTMAS TEARS.

Lyrics WELL I'M TORE DOWN,
I'M ALMOST LEVEL
WITH THE GROUND.
WELL I'M TORE DOWN,
I'M ALMOST LEVEL
WITH THE GROUND.
WHOA,
I FEEL LIKE THIS
WHEN MY BABY
CAN'T BE FOUND.

WELL I WENT
TO THE RIVER
TO JUMP IN,
MY BABY SHOWED UP
AND SAID,
I WILL TELL YOU
WHEN.
WELL I'M TORE DOWN,
I'M ALMOST LEVEL
WITH THE GROUND.
WHOA,
I FEEL LIKE THIS
WHEN MY BABY
CAN'T BE FOUND.

I LOVE YOU,
BABY,
WITH ALL MY HEART
AND SOUL,
A LOVE LIKE MINE
WILL NEVER GROW OLD.
I LOVE YOU
N THE MORNING
AND IN
THE EVENING TOO,
BUT EVERY TIME
YOU LEAVE ME
I GET MAD
WITH YOU.

WELL I'M TORE DOWN,
I'M ALMOST LEVEL
WITH THE GROUND.
WELL I'M TORE DOWN,
I'M ALMOST LEVEL
WITH THE GROUND.
WHOA,
I FEEL LIKE THIS
WHEN MY BABY
CAN'T BE FOUND.

I LOVE YOU BABY
WITH ALL MY MIGHT,
A LOVE LIKE MINE
IS OUT OF SIGHT.
I'LL LIE FOR YOU
IF YOU WANT ME TO
I REALLY DON'T BELIEVE
YOUR LOVE IS TRUE.

WELL I'M TORE DOWN,
I'M ALMOST LEVEL
WITH THE GROUND.
WELL I'M TORE DOWN,
I'M ALMOST LEVEL
WITH THE GROUND.
WHOA,
I FEEL LIKE THIS
WHEN MY BABY
CAN'T BE FOUND.

Lyrics WHOO-OO,
WHOO-OO,
WHOO-OO.

PACKED UP AND LEFT ME,
DIDN'T EVEN TELL ME
THE REASON WHY.
WELL, YOU PACKED UP
AND LEFT ME,
DIDN'T EVEN TELL ME
THE REASON WHY;
WELL, IF I DIDN'T PLEASE YOU,
BABY,
AIN'T BECAUSE
I DIDN'T TRY.

WELL, ALONG ABOUT MIDNIGHT,
WHEN I HEARD
THAT LONESOME CANNONBALL,
WELL, ALONG ABOUT MIDNIGHT,
WHEN I HEARD
THAT OLD LONESOME CANNONBALL;
WELL, I THINK ABOUT YOU,
BABY,
TEARS BEGIN TO FALL.

I'M GONNA FIND YOU BABY,
IF IT TAKES MY WHOLE LIFE
TO TRACK YOU DOWN,
I'M GONNA FIND YOU BABY,
IF IT TAKES MY WHOLE LIFE
TO TRACK YOU DOWN;
WELL, IF I DON'T FIND YOU
BY A PLANE,
I'M GONNA USE
MY OLD BLOODHOUND.

Lyrics I'M SITTIN' ON THE BOAT DOCK
PLAYIN' ON MY BONGO,
SITTIN' ON IT
ALL DAY LONG,
I'M SITTIN' ON THE BOAT DOCK
PLAYIN' ON MY BONGO,
PLAYIN' ON IT
ALL DAY LONG;
JUST WATCHING THE TIDE
WAITING FOR YOU
TO COME HOME.

NOW THE SUN IS SINKING
SLOWLY OUT OF SIGHT,
NOW THE SUN IS SINKING
SLOWLY OUT OF SIGHT;
UNTIL YOU COME HOME
I'LL KEEP SITTIN' ALL NIGHT.

NOW THE MOON IS SHINING
FROM UP ABOVE,
NOW THE MOON IS SHINING
FROM UP ABOVE;
IT'S SHINING ON ME,
BECAUSE I MISS THE ONE
I LOVE.

I SEE THE MOON
AND THE MOON SEES ME,
PLEASE MISTER MOON
DON'T TELL ON ME,
BECAUSE I'M SITTIN'
ON THE BOAT DOCK
PLAYIN' ON MY BONGO,
WAITING FOR MY BABY
TO COME HOME;
I'VE BEEN SITTIN' HERE
EVER SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE.

Lyrics EVERY TIME I WANNA HOLD YOU,
EVERY TIME I WANNA KISS YOU,
YOU SAY:
HEY WHOA BABY,
SOME OTHER DAY,
SOME OTHER TIME.
EVERY TIME WE GO DANCIN,
EVERY TIME I WANT ROMANCIN,
YOU SAY:
HEY WHOA BABY,
SOME OTHER DAY,
SOME OTHER TIME.

NOW WHATS THE MATTER BABY,
WHAT IS WRONG?,
WHY DO YOU
TREAT ME THIS WAY?
YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU BABY,
AND YOU BELONG HERE
IN MY ARMS TO STAY.

TELL ME WHY
YOU KEEP ON TEASIN,
JUST GIVE ME
ONE GOOD REASON.
YOU SAY:
HEY WHOA BABY,
SOME OTHER DAY,
SOME OTHER TIME!

Lyrics NOW IF YOU WANT TO LOVE
THAT WOMAN,
YOU WILL LOVE HER
WITH A THRILL,
BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T,
SOME OTHER MAN WILL

YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE HER
WITH A FEELING,
YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE HER
WITH A FEELING;
LOVE HER WITH A FEELING,
OR DON'T YOU LOVE HER
AT ALL.

SHE SHAKES ALL OVER
WHEN SHE WALKS,
SHE MADE A BLIND MAN SEE,
SHE MADE A DUMB MAN TALK.
YOU KNOW YOU LOVE ME
WITH A FEELING,
LOVE ME WITH A FEELING,
LOVE ME WITH A FEELING,
OR DON'T YOU LOVE ME
AT ALL.

THE COPS TOOK HER IN,
THE WOMAN DON'T
NEED NO BAIL,
SHE WIGGLED ONE TIME
FOR THE JUDGE,
AND THE JUDGE
PUT THE COPS
IN JAIL.

YOU KNOW YOU LOVE ME
WITH A FEELING,
LOVE ME WITH A FEELING,
LOVE ME WITH A FEELING,
BABY,
OR DON'T YOU LOVE ME
AT ALL.
