Lyrics

There's an angel on the tree
Presents on the floor
Mistletoe above the kitchen door
And the kids are playing games
And the turkey's going gold
Mariah Carey's on the radio

I'm pouring everybody a drink
But I'm holding back the tears as I think about

How Grandad liked the whiskey
And Grandma liked the gin
And Uncle Johnny wasn't fussed
He'd drink anything
So let's raise a glass to all those
We wish were sitting here
The ones we miss the most this time of year

Well, I still hear their voices laughing
At the Christmas-cracker jokes
See their footsteps sinking in the snow
'Cause all the magic in December
Seems to bring them back to life
For a moment they're all with me, by my side

I'm pouring everybody a drink
But I'm holding back the tears as I think about

How Grandad liked the whiskey
And Grandma liked the gin
And Uncle Johnny wasn't fussed
He'd drink anything
So let's raise a glass to all those
We wish were sitting here
The ones we miss the most this time of year

And let's make sure we're making memories good enough to last
Let's make this year the best we've ever had
'Cause one day I'll be laughing with you somewhere from the past
So will you raise a glass for me

You know I like a whiskey
And mum, she likes a gin
Our little cousin's still too young
But maybe just a sip
And let's all enjoy the moment
Before it disappears
With the ones we love the most this time of year

Let's raise a glass to all those
We wish were sitting here
The ones we miss the most this time of year
