Well, I picked out a tree
And I tied it to the car
There's a wreath up on our door
Eight tiny reindeer in the yard

I drove under the downtown lights
Red an' green and blue
The silver neon snowflakes
Only made me think of you

It's Christmas all around me
You're in someone else's land
So I'm sending out my only wish
Hey Santa, tell the man

Hey mister, send my baby home
This December I don't wanna be all alone
Oh, Christmas in America, I need you in my arms
Far away from harm, send my baby home

I hear someone singin' 'Jingle Bells'
No wait that's 'Deck the halls'
While the teenagers with candy canes
Ramble through the malls

The girls are down at Ruby's
Trying to find some Christmas cheer
There's not much to do but drink too much
When everyday is unclear

So here I am on Christmas eve
This silent holy night
And I reach up to the stars for you
I pray that you're alright

Hey mister, send my baby home
This December I don't wanna be all alone
Oh, Christmas in America I need you in my arms
Far away from harm, mister, send my baby home

What happened to the peace on Earth
All that goodwill toward men?
Oh come on all ye faithful
It's time to think again

Hey mister, send my baby home
This December I don't want to be all alone
Oh, come on, come on, come on
Hey mister, send my baby home
This December I don't want to be all alone

Send my baby home, send my baby home
Send my baby home, send my baby home
Come on, send my baby home, send my baby home
Send my baby home, send my baby home

Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah oh, come on, come on
Yeah yeah oh oh oh, yeah yeah yeah, oh oh oh oh oh oh
Send my baby home, send my baby home
Come on send my baby home, send my baby home
