After ‘Last Christmas’ George Michael started his solo career

Last Christmas, is a song by the British duo Wham! released on Epic Records in 1984, on a double single along with «Everything She Wants«. It was written by George Michael, one half of the duo.

It tells a story of love and heartbreak but does so with Christmas sounds. The joy of Christmas is mixed with the pain of a lost love. That genius gave Last Christmas the top of the charts at Christmas time for years.

Lyrics to the song «Last Christmas»

Happy Christmas

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me, baby
Do you recognize me?
Well, it’s been a year
It doesn’t surprise me

Merry Christmas

I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying «I love you»
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you kissed me now
I know you’d fool me again

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Oh, oh, baby

A crowded room
Friends with tired eyes
I’m hiding from you
And your soul of ice
My god, I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover, but you tore me apart
Now I’ve found a real love. You’ll never fool me again

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
I gave you my heart
A man under cover, but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone special

Special
Someone
Someone
I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone special

Who give me something in return
I’ll give it to someone
Hold my heart and watch it burn
I’ll give it to someone

I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone special

I thought you were here to stay
How could you love me for a day
I thought you were someone special

Gave you my heart

I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
You gave it away

I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone
