Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
And this year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I kept my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby, do you recognize me?
Ha, 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", I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kiss me now, you'll never fall me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
And this year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special, special

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

With a face of a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Oh, oh, 'cause now I found true love
You'll never fool me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
The very next day, you gave it away
And this year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special

I gave you my heart
You gave me away

And last Christmas, I gave you my heart
The very next day, you gave it away
And this year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special
