Dear Jerry it’s December once again
Fifth Avenue is lit up like a tree
This city shines just like precious gems
But I can’t pretend it’s everything I need

Each morning to what’s his name above
I hit me knees and say a prayer
Hail Mary protect the ones I love
And how I wish that I was there

I tried to write a love song
With a plain old ball point pen
But the words that hit the paper
Said I’m missing you my friend

Like a favorite pair of sneakers
Or the road that leads you home
Never mind the miles between us
I just had to say hello

Dear Jerry I been looking at the time
Aren’t you’re almost overdue
From midnight to eleven fifty nine
It’s a whole new year for you

Hope someone gives you something good
Full of chocolate booze or cash
Take comfort knowing if I could I would
Be beside you in a flash

I tried to write a love song
With a plain old ball point pen
But the words that hit the paper
Said I’m missing you my friend

Like a favorite pair of sneakers
Or the road that leads you home
Never mind the miles between us
I just had to say hello

Now in case you miss my voice or you wonder where I am
Well I’m always just a quick phone call away
And no matter where you go if it’s sunny or it snows
You can bet that you’ll be in my thoughts today
