Little mama's boy in boarding school
All the other boys they treat him cruel
Got skinny tears climbing up his nose
But he's gonna see his mama ‘cos he's
Going home for Christmas

Pretty girl with a big black eye
She's fallen in love with the wrong kind of guy
But big ol' daddy's gonna make her warm
He's so happy ‘cos she's
Going home for Christmas

Lonesome man with a city job
Made a big mistake when he kissed his boss
‘Cos the money's good but now she's in love
One more month then he's
Going home for Christmas

Weary traveler, he's seen so much
His eyes are bleary, he's lost his touch
Just wandering around this crazy world
He's gonna shave his beard, then he's
Going home for Christmas

Well, I left that school and I hit that girl
And I quit that job and I went around the world
And I miss my mama and I miss my dad
And I'm so glad ‘cos I'm
Going home for Christmas
I'm going home for Christmas
