MY CHRISTMAS LIST GROWS SHORTER EVERY YEAR (Bill Anderson) Bill Anderson - 1968 My Christmas list grows shorter every year Things just aren't the way they were before My Christmas list grows shorter every year It's almost not like Christmas anymore SPOKEN: I guess it's 'cause I came from a pretty big family Christmas was always a big happy time We used to swap presents with aunts, uncles and cousins 'Course most of the presents just came from the five and dime I remember how I used to get such a big kick out of wrappin' Just a simple little box and placin' it under the tree Everybody at my house used to laugh and say that I was born With a little too much of the spirit of Christmas in me I left home a few years ago now And it seemed then that things started to change Mom passed on, now Daddy's gone Christmases seem sorta strange Sister ran off with some weird kinda guy I never did understand him too much My kid brother's off somewhere in the Service And he never was the kind to stay in touch 'Course I started my own family a few years ago My wife and I had two of the cutest little girls I remember last Christmas I really went wild I bought them just about everything in the whole wide world And I remember on Christmas Eve night I took 'em up on my lap And I told them the story of Jesus And of Santa Claus and the eight tiny reindeer All I wish now is that the spirit of Christmas Could have lingered throughout the whole year You see, my wife left me back in September The kids are with her, I don't know where I'd love to just send them a small Christmas card To let 'em know that Daddy does care 'Cause Christmas is a time for sharing your gifts and your heart With the ones that you love the best But sittin' here tonight lookin' at this big sheet of paper I don't even have one single address My Christmas list grows shorter every year Oh, what I'd give to just go back in time My Christmas list grows shorter every year The only name that's left this year is mine (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2010)
