Last Christmas

It’s not Christmas yet, but I had a huge coffee the other day and couldn’t stop listening to ‘Last Christmas’ covers on YouTube. There are so many; here are some: (not all are as good as the original)

Lyrics:

Last Christmas, 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

Once bitten and twice shy, I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby, do you recognize me? Well it’s been a year – it doesn’t surprise me
Merry Christmas. I wrapped it up and sent it with a note saying “I love you” and meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been, but if you kissed me now I know you’d fool me again

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes. I’m hiding from you and your soul of ice
My god I thought you were someone to rely on. Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart, a man under cover but you tore me apart
Now I’ve found a real love you’ll never fool me again

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart, a man under cover buy you tore him apart
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone, I’ll give it to someone special.
