There isn't a star at the top of the tree this year
I can't say that I have any friends near
Never thought I would miss the bells
The calendar on the wall is the only thing that tells me
It's the twenty-fifth
And I won't receive one gift
Oh, why did you have to go away?
Good thing Christmas isn't here to stay

This isn't Christmas the way I remember it
This year I only have one gift
Where have all the bells gone?
Why do I only know one song?
This isn't Christmas the way I remember it


There are no sparkly lights in the hall
And I haven't made any trips to the shopping mall
What happened to all the stars?
The only one I see is too far
I guess I'll just sit and sip my hot chocolate
And remember the days when I was on top of it
Oh, when did the trees lose their green?
Why aren't the lights as bright as they used to be?

This isn't Christmas the way I remember it
This year I only have one gift
Where have all the bells gone?
Why do I only know one song?
This isn't Christmas the way I remember it


Oh, what happened to caring spirit?
This isn't Christmas the way I remember it
This year I only have one gift
Where have all the bells gone?
Why do I only know one song?
This isn't Christmas the way I remember it
