A little boy with tear dimmed eyes with trembling lips he could not hide
Too young to understand why daddy said goodbye
The Christmas time is almost here and daddy won't be home this year
The little boy looked up at mommy and he cried

All I want for Christmas is my daddy to help me decorate the Christmas tree
Tell ol' Santa Claus forget about those presents
But don't forget to bring my daddy Christmas Eve

Mommy said if I'd be good and say my prayers the way I should
Maybe God would help bring daddy back to us
For it won't seem like Christmas day with my daddy far away
'Cause we miss him so and love him oh so much

All I want for Christmas is my daddy to help me decorate the Christmas tree
Tell ol' Santa Claus forget about those presents
But don't forget to bring my daddy Christmas Eve
No don't forget to bring my daddy Christmas Eve
