"Home On Christmas Day" as written by and Robert Andrew/lauper Hyman....
Sitting in some hotel room
Some place far away
Saw a shop light screaming Christmas
Bought your present there today

Pre-Chorus:
I'll be home on Christmas day
I am just a thought away
And every Christmas tree
Reminds me where I'd rather be

The drunken Santa on the corner
Looks a little blue
But the twinkle in his eye dear
Looks a little like you

Chorus:
I'll be home on Christmas day
I am just a thought away
And every Christmas tree
Reminds me where I'd rather be
Home on Christmas day
I am just a thought away
But anywhere I'll be
You will always be Christmas to me

Something about this season
Makes me feel a little queer
Everybody's so dam jolly
I wish you were here

Chorus:
I'll be home on Christmas day
I am just a thought away
And every Christmas tree
Reminds me where I'd rather be
Home on Christmas day
I am just a thought away
But anywhere I'll be
You will always be Christmas to me

    General CommentA quaint song about wanting to get home to a loved one. Lauper uses the word "queer" to mean odd, so you know this is an old song. She was pro gay rights, so she meant no disrespect. She likens her boyfriend to the drunken santa who's blue, so apparently she knows she's been missed.
