About The Song

The song “Last Christmas” was written by Tony Hatch and his wife Jackie Trent. It’s a lighthearted, catchy song with a memorable chorus and even has a touch of melancholy. The lyrics were originally written by Hatch as a list of gifts that he wanted for Christmas, and then sent to Trent who put them into verse form.

The whole song is about a man telling his significant other, “Merry Christmas” in various ways.

This classic carol tells the story of a man who, despite his loneliness and depression, maintains a sense of hope even as he remembers his past relationships and previous Christmas celebrations.
