I wish you happy christmas
I do dear, I do
I wish for you the stars, babe
I wish for you the moon

You can sit, and you can drink your champagne
With your gibbering goon
I hope he's being good to you
I do dear, I do

Ain't no whirlwind below your wing
Wish that you will keep safe
Up there in your leather babe
With your ivory and (?)

Things down here are fragmatic
In fact they've exploded all over the room
I think everything's a little off-center, babe
I do dear, I do

You said, that to love me you must set me free
Now, that may all be very well
Still I miss you baby
More than words can ever tell

Sometimes I can not sleep
The greatness of my hate for you
Sometimes I can not sleep
For I miss you

May your day be bright as the eyes
Of the girl that I once knew
May your sun be happy yellow, babe
And your sky be baby blue

I miss your manic scratches
And your howling at the moon
Ten steps behind me
With your dustpan and broom

I hope you wish for me
All the things I wish for you
Health, hope and happiness
The sun and the moon

Say hello to the one
Who really don't have a clue
I'll be calling you soon
I think I love you

I do dear, I do.
