Christmas (Comes But Once A Year)    (1960)

Christmas time comes but once a year
I'm so happy and the kids are happy too
You'll take the next six months to pay these bills
Every time I think about it, it gives me chills
I don't care, Christmas comes but once a year

Getting ready to have myself a ball
Going dancing, gonna dance in every hall
I'm gonna finger pop till New Years Day
And I don't care what I have to pay
I don't care, Christmas comes but once a year

After all, all is said and done
I hope your friends are the only ones
Take the next six months to pay these bills
Every time I think about it, it gives me chills
I don't care, Christmas comes but once a year

I don't care, Christmas comes but once a year

After all, all is said and done
I hope your friends are the only ones
Take the next six months to pay these bills
Every time I think about it, it gives me chills
I don't care, Christmas comes but once a year

I don't care, Christmas comes but once a year
