Squirrel Nut Zippers — A Johnny Ace Christmas lyrics

It's christmas eve, people
But someone's got to go
It's christmas eve, people
But someone's got to go
I never thought he'd have the nerve
But that just shows you what I know
He had a sweet and lonely voice
How I wish that he had stayed
He had a sweet and lonely voice
How I wish that he had stayed
But the dealer dealt the cards
And the ace has done been played
He used to talk about forever
Forever and a day
But when you get down to it
Things just don't work out that way
Merry christmas johnny
Though you're leaving now
The anticipation's better
Than the real thing anyhow
