Daddy, you said you would not be home
At Christmas time this year
But your presents are all wrapped
And waiting for you here
Mommy said I'd see you Christmas
But only on a TV
Look Daddy! Below the Christmas tree
That little boy is ME.
See I'm smiling for you, Dad
And wanting you to know
I will have a good Christmas time
I'll have some Christmas snow
But if Santa brings me a sled to ride
I'll wait till you come home
'Cause, Daddy, you're the bravest one
And I won't ride alone
I'll share my sled with you,
Promise I will keep it clean and nice
Don't want to mess it up
Sledding on the ice
I can't wait till you come home
From that war so far away
I'll guard your little presents we made
Till we can have your Christmas Day
I have a little calendar
I'm marking off the days
I'm waiting for you Daddy,
Cause you'll be home in May!
