Mighty Sparrow - Post Card to Sparrow lyrics

Christmas Bells are ringing Everybody singing Children are dancing Young lovers romancing My lover from Trinidad Sent me a little post card I opened and read And this is what the little post card said Have a Merry Christmas my dear And have a Happy New Year Prosperous in everything you do Happy Holiday to you She say how she miss me And longing to kiss me She is very lonely And she loves me only I stood almost hypnotised With tears running from my eyes But still I could see The Seasons Greeting she sent to me Have a Merry Christmas my dear And have a Happy New Year Prosperous in everything you do Happy Holiday to you My poor heart was aching And me hand was shaking So I kept on trying To keep me from crying I tried everything I could But my heart isn't made of wood With card in me hand I cried more than Alice in Wonderland Have a Merry Christmas my dear And have a Happy New Year Prosperous in everything you do Happy Holiday to you When Dottie was leaving I knew I was grieving But I tried my utmost To be as strong as a lamp post But love is a crazy thing It is no use pretending I love her so bad Tomorrow I'm going back to Trinidad Have a Merry Christmas my dear And have a Happy New Year Prosperous in everything you do Happy Holiday to you
