Rufus Wainwright – What Are You Doing New Year's Eve? lyrics

When the bells all ring
And the horns are blown
And the couples we know
Are fondly kissing

Will I be with you
Or will I be among the missing?

Maybe it's much too early in the game
Oh, but I thought I'd ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year's, New Year's Eve?
Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it's exactly twelve o'clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year, New Year's Eve
Maybe I'm crazy to suppose I'd ever be the one you chose
Out of the thousand invitations you receive

And though I know I'll never stand a chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance
What are you doin' New Year's, New Year's Eve?
What are you doin' New Year's Eve?
