"Last Christmas" as written by and George Michael....
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special (special)

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby do you recognize me?
Well it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special (special)

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special (special)

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year,
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
Special, someone, someone
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special

Who'll give me something in return
I'll give it to someone, hold my heart and watch it burn

I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
I thought you were here to stay
How can love be for a day?
I thought you were someone special, gave you my heart

I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone
Last Christmas I gave you my heart
You gave it away
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone

    General CommentBut this song isn't even about Christmas! It is about a broken heart, which just happened to be broken at Christmas!!!!
    Personaly I love it! It is depressing, but somehow, it always makes me laugh!

    General CommentGeorge Michael, has wrote this song, and the lyrics are his. There has been many artist after him, that have sang it. Only Darren Hayes, former Savage Garden frontman. Has ever done this song justice. I'm a huge GM fan, since the beginning. GM, is a mastermind of his talent, it's to bad people, only see him as being GAY. It's pretty bad. :( But, this song is very touching. Just because, it has "Christmas" in the title, doesn't mean it has to be about Christmas.....ever learn to "Read Between the lines?"

    General CommentYou can always count on Wham! to deliver a great song for almost every time of year and every celebration. There's always one track which seems appropriate and i am a big fan of Wham! This is my favourite Christmas song ever and it doesn't matter what time of year it is, whenever i hear it, i always get that warm feeling. And i only like this version of 'Last Christmas'...the others just aren't as good.

    General CommentFor some odd reason my sister and I end up acting like idiots every time this song comes on... it's one of those songs that just makes us giddy.

    General CommentThis song is really good.......... Well, when I say really good I mean like compared to having lighted splints stuck behind your fingernails and your bodily cavities filled with cement, it's really good. The meaning of the song is that George does not have to worry about money ever again and can spend more time doing rude things in public lavatories.
