Back before the curfew when this place smelled like a jungle
And everything in my life went wrong
There were waltzing patrolmen and it wasn't always snowing
And the nights were lively and long

In my youth you could see across the water
The river danced blue in the sun
And we'd kiss each other and love each other
And never dreamt of killing anyone

Oh I wish that it was Christmas and I was looking through your window
Watching Aunt Holly tuck you in to bed
Oh I wish that I could wish that I was young more often
'Cause I'm tired of wishing I was dead

In my youth me and my friend David
Would lie down together in the hall
And we'd love each other and touch each other
And wrote our names with cum on the wall

Oh I wish that it was Christmas and I was looking through your window
Watching Aunt Holly tuck you in to bed
Oh I wish that I could wish that I was young more often
'Cause I'm tired of wishing I was dead

(solo verse)

Yonder down the river stands the Church Of Jesus Christ
Were we rolled like dogs in the snow
And my darling daughter I put you in the water
In the name of the Holy Ghost
Oh I wish that I could love you, I wish that I could love you
I wish that I could love you back
I wish I were a painter or jack hammer operator
Or repaired TVs just like my dad

Oh I wish that it was Christmas and I was looking through your window
Watching Aunt Holly tuck you in to bed
Oh I wish that I could wish that I was young more often
'Cause I'm tired, tired, tired, of wishing I was dead

(solo chorus)
