There’s Nothing Worse than Loneliness at Christmastime

[written and sung by Red Skelton, as Freddy the Freeloader, in Red Skelton’s Christmas Dinner]

(You can read much more about  Red Skelton, his characters and work at our sister site,  Red Skelton)

There is nothing worse than loneliness at Christmastime,
When old friends forget where you are,
While your memory still lingers,
You can count upon your fingers,
Those that know the meaning of the Star.

Red Skelton as Freddy the FreeloaderThere is nothing worse than loneliness at Christmastime,
Friends that used to stop no longer come,
Life seems dark and dreary,
The occassion seems quite weary,
You smile and wish no person any harm.

The house is all decked out for Christmas,
There’s tinsel and holly on the tree,
Beneath the boughs the gifts are tied with ribbons,
But there is not one gift there marked for me.

There is nothing worse than loneliness at Christmastime,
But what’s to be, will be,
All alone, by myself,
I’ll put gloom upon the shelf,
And I’ll say “Merry Christmas to me.”
