Buck Owens — All I Want For Christmas Is My Daddy lyrics

A little boy with tear dimmed eyes
With trembling lips he could not hide
Too young to undertsand
Why daddy said goodbye
Why, Christmas time is almost here
And daddy won't be home this year
The little boy looked up at mommy and he cried

All I want for Christmas is my daddy
To help me decorate the Christmas tree
Tell ol' Santa Claus forget about those presents
But don't forget to bring my daddy Christmas Eve

Mommy said if I'd be good
And say my prayers the way I should
Maybe God would help bring daddy back to us
For it won't seem like Christmas day
With my daddy far away
'Cause we miss him so and love him oh so much

All I want for Christmas is my daddy
To help me docorate the Christmas tree
Tell ol' Santa Claus forget about those presents
But don't forget to bring my daddy Christmas Eve

No, don't forget to bring my daddy Christmas Eve...
