Last night spent another lonely Christmas
Darlin', darlin', U should've been there
Cuz of all the ones dream about
U R the 1 that makes my love shout
U C, U R the only 1 care 4

Remember the time we swam naked
N ur father's pool?
Boy, he was upset that night
But boy, was that ever cool
Remember that night we played Pokeno 4 money
& U robbed me blind
Remember how U used 2 scream so loud
Cuz U... U hated that #9
Hey, saw ur sister skatin' on the lake
This afternoon
Good heaven, how she's grown
She swoons the boy skaters cuz she's so tall
But of all ur father's children
All ur father's children, baby
U know U R the finest of them all
U R brighter than the northern star & ...

Last night spent another lonely Christmas
Darlin', darlin', U... U should've been there
U C, of all the ones dream about
U R the 1 that makes my love shout
U C, U R the only 1 care 4
Listen...

Do U still like banana daiquiris?
Hmph, boy, we used 2 get so tight
Ooh, U used 2 get so horny
U made me leave the lights on
'd pay money just 2 C ur laughin'
Dancin' silhouette upon the pier
Sometimes think hear U smiling
Sometimes think U'r here
find myself holdin' every pillow
N the bed U & used 2 share
Last night spent another lonely Christmas
Darling, U should B, U should B there

Cuz U C, last night spent another lonely Christmas
Darlin', darlin', U... U should've been there
Cuz U C, of all the ones dream about
U R the 1 that makes my love shout
U C, U R the only 1 care 4, yeah

My mama used 2 say
Always trust ur lover
But now guess that only applies 2 her
Cuz baby, U promised me
Baby, U promised me U'd never leave
& then U died on the 25th day of December

Oh baby, last night, oh
spent another lonely, lonely Christmas
Darlin' baby, U...
U should've been there, oh
Cuz of all the ones dream about
U R the 1 that makes my love shout
U C, U R the only 1 care 4, yeah

Ur father said it was pneumonia
Ur mother said it was stress
But the doctor said U were dead & ...
say it's senseless
Every Christmas night 4 7 years now
drink banana daiquiris till 'm blind
As long as can hear U smiling, baby
U won't hear my tears
Another lonely Christmas is mine, yeah
Mine, yeah
Another lonely Christmas is mine

Last night, yeah
spent another lonely, lonely Christmas
Darlin', darlin', U should've been there, yeah
Cuz of all the ones dream about
U R the 1 that makes my love shout
U C, U R the only 1 care 4
Another lonely...
