LYRICS:

It’s gonna be the first one, that I’ll spend alone
Just me and people all around, at my parents’ home
Get that bottle of white wine, make that brown rice salad you like
But every now and then, you know I’ll be checking my phone

Did you go to your sister’s, like you said you would
Ham on the beach, too many prawns - which I never understood
I bought your present in March, but you were gone by June
I’d hoped you’d like Daptone, you always said they were good

Well I know I hurt you woman! But you hurt me too!
And I’m crying at Christmas, so I guess you’re crying too?

I know it’s not the worst thing that can happen to me
But when I see my cousin Sarah, kissing her new man Danny
Well I clutch my stubbie tight, wander off into the night
Just standing in the garden, crying to the mango tree

I know you remember our first, so I won’t even ask
Overcooked the turkey, kissing too much, but we just laughed
It’s alright that it’s over, it’s probably for the best
I’ll go back to family dinner, drink from the hip flask that you left

Well I know I hurt you woman! But you hurt me too!
And I’m crying at Christmas, and I hope you’re crying too!
