Lyrics / Paroles


Merry Christmas everybody!
Jermaine: Yeah, merry Christmas everybody. Big deal.
Michael: Hey, man, what's wrong with you, Jermaine?
Jackie: Yeah, that's no kind of attitude.
Marlon: This only happens once a year.
Tito: Hey, fellas, don't bug him. He and his girl just broke up. So get off his back. Can't you see there's tears in his eyes? All: Yeah, he's crying, look he's crying!
Don't cry! Don't cry! Don't cry!

Christmas won't be the same this year
Without her loving arms holding you so near
Christmas won't be the same this year (no it won't, now darling)
Without her loving arms holding you so near (no no)

I see the lights but they don't shine for me
I see the presents underneath the Christmas tree
Our house is decorated, friends are clebrating

Christmas won't be the same this year (no no no)
Without her loving arms holding you so near (it won't be the same this year)
Christmas won't be the same this year (the things we used to do now darling)
Without her loving arms holding you so near (it's all over)

The neighborhood kids are having so much fun
Counting off the days till Santa Claus comes
And I see the mistletoe hanging from my door
I wish I could kiss you again like I did before.

Christmas won't be the same this year (no no, oh, oh)
Without her loving arms holding you so near (yeah yeah)
So go on, girl, and have your fun
Don't spoil your time thinking about me
This time next year, my darling dear
Hopefully you'll be having dinner with me

Christmas won't be the same this year (no no no no)
Without her loving arms holding you so near (it won't be the same)
Christmas won't be the same this year (without you darling)
Without her loving arms holding you so near (no no)
(Fade)
