The Little Christmas Tree Lyrics

by Al Jarreau

I watch the snow flakes fall
Against my window pane
And wonder if you
Are watching snow flakes too

I take a walk downtown
To where you used to meet me
There's joy everywhere
But all that's waiting there

Is just a little Christmas tree
Looking sorta sad n' lonely just like me
No one seems to care
They just went away
And left it standing there
All alone on Christmas eve

I hear the Christmas bell
The happy people singing
The songs of good cheer
That only brings me tears

I sadly close my eyes
And say a little prayer
You'll be waiting there for me
I look but all I see

Is just a little Christmas tree
Looking sorta sad n' lonely just like me
No one seems to care
They just went away
And left it standing there
All alone on Christmas eve

This is the season of love
But I'm as sad as I can be
Why did you have to leave me?

Oh, little Christmas tree
Looking sorta sad n' lonely just like me
No one seems to care
They just went away
And left it standing there
All alone on Christmas eve
