Please Daddy Don't Get Drunk This Christmas Lyrics

by Alan Jackson

Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my momma cry
Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my momma cry

Just last year when I was only seven
Now I'm almost eight, as you can see
You came home a quarter past eleven
And fell down underneath our Christmas tree

Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my momma cry
Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my momma cry

Mama smiled and looked outside the window
She told me, son, you better go upstairs
Then you laughed and hollered, "Merry Christmas"
I turned around and saw my momma's tears

Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my momma cry
Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my momma cry
Everybody sing now

Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my momma cry
Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my momma cry
No, I don't want to see my momma cry
