I left a glass of Irish whiskey out for Santa Claus
And he drank it and another one as well
And if I shed a tear
Well, it's too much too close to the surface
Exactly what I couldn't tell
Love is heaven, yeah, love is hell
Noel, noel, Merry Christmas

I like the lights on the Empire State Building
The trees on every corner
In New York City
And all the girls in red velvet
At St Patrick's, mmm so pretty
I light a candle for everyone I love, and myself
Noel, noel, Merry Christmas

So what were we maybe 19
It was you, your mother and me
Listening to the choir sing on Christmas eve
Snow falling, all calm, all bright
Did not heaven and nature sing on that holy night
There is hope in the ringing of the bells
Noel, noel
Merry Christmas
