Daddy won't be home again for Christmas,
But I'm hoping that this little cheque will fit;
Daddy won't be home again for Christmas,
Maybe this will serve to let you know I don't forget.

The Christmas tree where I'll be won't be lighted,
But the rain and cold will let us know December's here;
Forgive me for the letters I don't answer,
I keep thinking I'll be home again each year.

But daddy won't be home again for Christmas,
Here's hoping that this little cheque will fit;
Daddy won't be home again for Christmas,
Maybe this will serve to let you know I don't forget.

I know Santa Claus won't bring you all the things you need,
But maybe he'll be kinder if he knows,
That I won't be home again this year to play his role,
Besides I'm much too thin to wear his clothes.

And daddy won't be home again for Christmas,
Here's hoping that this little cheque will fit;
Daddy won't be home again for Christmas,
Maybe this will serve to let you know I don't forget.
