Lyrics

Well, I’m slipping into Christmas
I’m sliding into New Years'
And I’m missing all your kisses
Baby, since you’re not here
The special thing you give me
I won’t find underneath my tree
And I’m feeling sad and lonesome
Wishing you were here with me
And I’m feeling kind of useless
By secondhand Christmas tree
And I’m sneaking into sorrow
These blues have got a hold on me
Well, I know tis the season to be jolly
But Scrooge ain’t got a thing on me
And so I’m slipping into Christmas
Wishing you were here with me
Well, I’m slipping into Christmas
Sliding into New Years'
And I’m missing all your kisses
Golly, since you’re not here
Oh, deck the halls with teardrops
Scrooge ain’t got a thing on me
So I’m slipping into Christmas
Wishing you were here with me
Whoa, sitting right here on my knee
Well, it’s gonna be a blue Christmas
