  • There's a Christmas tree
    In a window frame
    Just inside my door
    But my Christmas tree
    Doesn't look the same
    As it always has before

    There's just one lonely present
    Beneath my Christmas tree
    'Cause the best little present
    A girl ever had
    Has gone away from me

    Oh, my Christmas tree is not very big
    In fact it's kind of small
    Honey went, he picked 'em out
    They always seem so tall

    The lights don't seem so bright this year
    It's hard for me to see
    The smile that made my Christmas bright
    Is gone away from me

    I have been so lonely
    Since you left me all alone
    All I want for Christmas is
    My baby back at home

    oh, my Christmas tree's so sad and bare
    My room's so big and cold
    They wish me happy new year
    But the new year is already on

    There's no little angel
    On top where it used to be
    'Cause the angel
    That made my Christmas right
    Has gone away from me...
    'Cause the angel
    That made my Christmas right
    Has gone away from me...
    'Cause the angel
    That made my Christmas right
    Has gone away from me... Writer/s: JIMMY L WEBB
