It's just that repeated. But here how the timing is roughly. CIt was Christmas Eve babFe in the drunk tank CAn old man said to meG, won't see another one CAnd then he sang a song ThFe Rare Old Mountain Dew CI turned my face away and dreamedG about you. C G Got on a lucky one came in eighteen to one I've got a feeling this year's for me and you So happy Christmas, I love you baby There's gonna be some goodtime when all our dreams come true CThey've got cars big as bars, thFey've got rivers of gold CBut the wind goes right through Gyou; it's no place for the old CWhen you first took my hand, on Ga cold Christmas Eve CYou promised me FBroadway was waiGting for me. C CYou were handsome you were pretty, queen of New York City CWhen the band finishedF playing they howled ouGt for more C CSinatra was swinging, all the drunks they were singing CWe kissed on a corner Fthen danced through theG night. C

Chorus

FThe boys of the NYPD chCoir were singing "Galway Bay" A CAnd the bells were Fringing out for ChriGstmas day C CI could have been someone, well so could aFnyone CYou took my dreams from me when I first founGd you CI kept them with me babe; I put them wiFth my own CCan't make it all aloneG, I've built my drCeams around you G

Chorus

FThe boys of the NYPD chCoir were singing "Galway Bay" A CAnd the bells were Fringing out for ChriGstmas day C CYou're a bum, you're a punk, you're an old Fslut on junk CLying there almost dead on a drip iGn that bed CYou scumbag, you maggot, you cheap lousy faggot CHappy Christmas my arse, FI'd rather beG dead. C Last chorus: FThe boys of the NYPD chCoir were singing "Galway Bay" A CAnd the bells were Fringing out for ChriGstmas day C CSo happy Christmas, I love you Fbaby CThere's gonna be somGe goodtime when all our dreCams come true G CSo, happy christmas, I love you baby
