CHRISTMAS TEARS WILL FALL
(T. McGuiness - L. Stonebridge)
ROCKY SHARPE & THE REPLAYS (Chiswick, 1980)
Tonight's Christmas Eve and I'm waiting by the phone
There's no one else around me, I'm sitting here alone
Hey there, operator, please put through my call
If I don't hear from my baby, Christmas tears will fall
I could be with my friends, but I'd only bring 'em down
Christmas Eve is lonely, when your baby's not around
Hey there, operator, promised her I'd call
If I don't speak to my baby, Christmas tears will fall
What's that operator? You say the lines are down?
Well, what's the good of Christmas if your baby's not around
Is there no way to connect us? Are you really sure?
Hold on, wait a minute! There's someone at the door
Hey there, operator, please forget my call
My baby's just walked in, happy Christmas after all
Hey there operator, please forget my call
Happy Christmas! After all!
