Lyrics

V1
I'm not much good at
Keeping in touch these days
And so I just thought
I'd call you up to say

Pre-Chorus
I know it's your house this year
But I've got this thing up here
That I'd really like to do

CHORUS
So I won't be there on Christmas Day
Apologise to Mary, mate
'Cos I won't be there on Christmas Day
That's the way it has to be
No, I'm not coming down this year
I'm gonna stay up here

V2
You know, ever since the break-up
Life's just been a haze
But see I've met a woman
Hey, it's early days

Pre-Chorus
But she's kind of invited me
Around for Christmas tea
And that's what I want to do

CHORUS
So I won't be there on Christmas Day
You've gotta take your chance they say
I'm staying here on Christmas Day
Please don't take it personally
But I'm not coming down this year
Somebody wants me here
Yeah, somebody wants me here

BRIDGE
It's not as if you'll miss me all that much
I'll try to ring you guys before you eat lunch
It's all fine

V3
Besides, it's not the same mate
Without Dad saying grace
God, I really miss him
He always knew what to say

Pre-Chorus
But I bet the house looks a treat
Did you buy a real pine tree?
And don't forget Mum's lights

CHORUS
But I won't be there on Christmas Day
A second chance is a rarity
'Cos she wants me here for Christmas Day
Something quiet, just her and me
I won't be there on Christmas Day
I might be down at Easter mate
Kiss those kids goodnight for me
I put the presents in the mail today
'Cos I'm not coming down this year
Somebody wants me here
Yeah, somebody wants me here
