Mummy said that I've been bad
(OK, my darling, don't look sad)
It's Christmas Eve, I want to see
The kind of gifts I might have had...

But what did I do wrong?
You never listened to your mother's good advice
What did I do?
You go out dancing and you come home late at night
What did I do?
Must have done something bad
Cos I'm getting coal
Cos I've been a bad girl

Christmas Day, think of me
When sleigh bells ring and people say
I hope you had all you want (Merry Christmas!!!)
I'm getting coal my mother says
Cos I've been a bad girl
(Cos she's been a bad girl)

But what did I do wrong?
You're disrespectful and you're squandering your youth
What did I do?
You've been with boys and you never tell the truth
What did I do?
You're hanging round with people practically uncouth
What did I do?
I'm sure there's more, but that is all for which there is proof
What did I do?
Must have done something bad
Cos I'm getting coal
Cos I've been a bad girl
(Cos she's been a bad girl x4)

But it's Christmas!
But it's Christmas!

Won't you forgive me even now
At this forgiving time of year?
