"Next Year, Baby" as written by and Jamie Cullum....
Next year
Things are gonna change
Gonna drink less beer
And start all over again

Gonna read more books
Gonna keep up with the news
Gonna learn how to cook
And spend less money on shoes

Gonna pay my bills on time
File my mail away, everyday
Only drink the finest wine
And call my gran every Sunday

Well resolutions
Well baby they come and go
Will I do any of these things?
The answer's probably no

But if there's one thing, I must do
Despite my greatest fears
I'm gonna say to you
How I've felt all of these years

Next year
Next year

I'm gonna tell you how I feel
I'm gonna tell you how I feel

Well, resolutions
Baby they come and go
Will I do any of these things?
The answer's probably no

But if there's one thing, I must do
Despite my greatest fears
I'm gonna say to you
How I've felt all of these years

Next year
Next year
Next year

    General CommentJC said in concert that he wrote this song about a girl who he had always fancied but who he could never work up the courage to talk to (or who was already with someone, I forget which :P). He wrote this song as a resolution to tell her how he felt. He eventually invited her to a concert where he played it - afterwards they went out for a drink and he realized what a complete bore she was.

    Great song regardless.
