Mother once told me when I was a boy,
Don't leave your home, son, don't make me cry;
Stay awhile longer, wait till the spring,
'Cause it won't be long now till the Christmas bells ring.

A long time ago, son, your father left home,
Looking for work, no intentions to roam;
He soon found employment, he sent back my ring,
I miss him so much when the Christmas choirs sing.

When the Christmas choir sings on this Christmas day,
I don't want my son or my daughters away;
Please do not leave me, wait until spring,
It won't be long now till the Christmas bells ring.

Life wasn't easy here 'round the bay,
I slaved all my life, but I loved you each day;
So, do what I ask you, wait until spring,
'Cause it won't be long now till the Christmas bells ring.

I then held my mother, with a tear in my eye,
Saying, I'll always love you and will till I die;
I'll always be with you in winter or spring,
And I'll always be home 'fore the Christmas bells ring.

When the Christmas bells ring on this Christmas day,
I don't want my son or my daughters away;
Please do not leave me, wait until spring,
It won't be long now till the Christmas bells ring.
No, it won't be long now till the Christmas bells ring.
