Verse 1

It was Christmas CEve babe

In the Fdrunk tank

An old man Csaid to me, won’t see Ganother one

And then he Csang a song

The Rare Old FMountain Dew

I turned my Cface away

And dreamed Gabout Cyou

Verse 2

Got on a Clucky one

Came in eighFteen to one

I’ve got a Cfeeling

This year’s for Gme and you

So happy CChristmas

I love youF baby

I can see a Cbetter time

When all our dGreams come Ctrue

Verse 3

They’ve got Ccars big as Gbars

They’ve got Amrivers of Fgold

But the Cwind goes right through you

It’s no place for the Gold

When you Cfirst took my Amhand

On a Ccold Christmas FEve

You Cpromised me

Broadway was Gwaiting for Cme

Verse 4

You were Chandsome

You were pretty

Queen of New York GCity

When the Cband finished Fplaying

They Ghowled out for Cmore

CSinatra was swinging

All the drunks they were Gsinging

We Ckissed on a Fcorner

Then Gdanced through the Cnight


The Fboys of the NYPD Gchoir

Were Csinging Galway AmBay

And the Cbells were Fringing Gout

For Christmas Cday






Verse 5

You’re a Cbum

You’re a punk

You’re an old slut on Gjunk

Lying Cthere almost Fdead on a Gdrip in that Cbed

You Cscumbag, you maggot

You cheap lousy Gfaggot

Happy CChristmas your Farse

I pray GGod it’s our Clast


The boyFs of the NYPD Gchoir

Still sCinging Galway AmBay

And the Cbells are Fringing Gout

For Christmas Cday

Verse 6

I could have Cbeen someone

Well so could Fanyone

You took my Cdreams from me

When I first Gfound you

I kept them Cwith me babe

I put them Fwith my own

Can’t make it Call alone

I’ve built my dreams Garound Cyou


The boyFs of the NYPD Gchoir

Still Csinging Galway AmBay

And the Cbells are Fringing Gout

For Christmas Cday
