If you take me back baby, I'll get you anything you need.

I had a good chance, baby give me just one more,
I had a good chance, baby give me just one more,
I'm gonna show you some lovin', like you have never been before.

I know I did you wrong, I'm just as sorry as I can be,

Just the day before Christmas, mama please come back to me.

Mama, don't turn me down, on this Christmas Eve,
Mama, don't turn me down, on this Christmas Eve,
