Lyrics : Dad, Come Home this Christmas

You left for cigarettes seven years ago
Now it's Christmas again
And you're still not home
Dad, why'd you have to go and leave me all alone?
I can't open my presents 'til our family's whole
Oh, I'm sure that corner store's just far away
And any day he'll burst in to say
"I'm back my boy
And Marry Christmas, too
I didn't leave because of you
I left because I was having an affair
Now, here be your new mom"
