Please Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas) - The Decemberists

Please Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my Momma cry
Please Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my Momma cry

Just last year when I was only seven
And now I'm almost eight, as you can see
You came home at a quarter past eleven
Fell down underneath our Christmas tree

Please Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my Momma cry
Please Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my Momma cry

Momma smiled and looked outside the window
She told me, "Son, you better go upstairs"
Then you laughed and hollered, "Merry Christmas!"
I turned around and saw my Momma's tears

Please Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my Momma cry
Please Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my Momma cry
No, I don't want to see my Momma cry
