Through long December nights
We talk in words of rain or snow
While you through chattering teeth
Reply and curse as you go

Why not spare a thought this day
For those who have no flame
To warm their bones at Christmas time?
Say Jack Frost and the hooded crow

Now, as the last broad oak leaf falls
We beg, consider this
There's some who have no coin
To save for turkey, wine or gifts

No children's laughter 'round the fire
No family left to know
So lend a warm and helping hand
Say Jack Frost and the hooded crow

As holly pricks and ivy clings
Your fate is none too clear
The Lord may find you wanting
Let your good fortune disappear

All homely comforts blown away
And all that's left to show
Is to share your joy at Christmas time
With Jack Frost and the hooded crow

Through long December nights
We talk in words of rain or snow
While you through chattering teeth
Reply and curse as you go

Why not spare a thought this day
For those who have no flame
To warm their bones at Christmas time?
Say Jack Frost and the hooded crow
