I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears,
I'll give it to someone special.
Do you know this song?
If you listen to the same Christmas radio station that I listen to, you do. You probably know it backwards.
Special someone to it give I'll
tears from me save to year this
away it gave you day next very the but
heart my you gave I Christmas last.
Yeah, that probably made perfect sense to you.
This song gets played a lot. And like everyone that's ever recorded a Christmas song sings it.
WELL guess what? If I ever record a Christmas album, I'm NOT singing this one.
That's right - I don't like this song. Nope, I sure don't.
The original version by Wham! is especially irksome to me. At least other versions have decent vocals.
But really, what is this song other than a love song disguised as a Christmas song? I'll tell you what - it's a bad love song disguised as a Christmas song!
If it wasn't for the word Christmas, it wouldn't be allowed to play at Christmastime. And since none of the other lyrics have anything to do with Christmas, I submit that we officially change the title of the song to "Last Easter" or "Last August," which make just as much sense, and get this song off the Christmas playlist.
So - do you have Christmas songs that you just get sick of, or deny the Christmasness of? Don't worry - it doesn't make you a Scrooge.
