Hello there, Merry Christmas, how you been?
Gee, it's so good to talk to you again

It's been a long, long time
Can't explain why you crossed my mind
I guess it's just to wish you a Merry Christmas

My best friend's having a party
And everybody's going
I know it's gonna be a lot of fun
Oh, by the way, it's snowing

It's been a long, long time
Cant' explain why you crossed my mind
I guess it's just to say, “Gee whiz, it's Christmas”

It's funny that I haven't thought
To call you before
And why is it I haven't seen
You around anymore?

Another year has passed and I can't erase
The memory of your smiling face
So I had to call you up and say
“Gee whiz, it's Christmas”

So don't forget the party that we're throwing
The warm fires from the fireplace will be glowing

It's been a long, long time
I still can't figure out why you crossed my mind
I guess it's just to say, "Gee whiz, it's Christmas"

I'm wishing you a Merry
Have a Merry, Merry Christmas
Gee whiz, have a Merry, Merry, Merry

    She's talking to an old flame... From years ago. He was a handsome young man, who went to war... And never came home. She's talking to him in her mind, just to let him know that no matter how long it's been, she'll always remember him at christmas. She uses the terminology of someone making a telephone call. But her call is actually more of a prayer.
