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.
