Darlene Love's classic carol "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" finds a new home on the Billboard Hot 100 this week (dated Jan. 2) at No. 19.

Not only is this the song's first time in the Hot 100 top 20, but it's also Love's first time reaching this tier since "Wait 'Til My Bobby Gets Home" hit No. 26 back in 1963.

Last holiday season, she told Billboard that her favorite covers of "Christmas" are Mariah Carey's because "hers is so much like the original...with her great voice," and U2's, "because it DOESN'T sound like 'Christmas (Baby)', and they had me do all three background vocals on it."

Check out the lyrics and music video below.

(Christmas) The snow's coming down
(Christmas) I'm watching it fall
(Christmas) Lots of people around
(Christmas) Baby, please come home

(Christmas) The church bells in town
(Christmas) All ringing in song
(Christmas) Full of happy sounds
(Christmas) Baby, please come home

They're singing "Deck The Halls"
But it's not like Christmas at all
'Cause I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas) Pretty lights on the tree
(Christmas) I'm watching them shine
(Christmas) You should be here with me
(Christmas) Baby, please come home

They're singing "Deck The Halls"
But it's not like Christmas at all
'Cause I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas) If there was a way
(Christmas) I'd hold back this tear
(Christmas) But it's Christmas day
(Please) Please (please), please
(Please) Please (please), please
(Please) Please (please), please
(Please) Baby, please come home

(Christmas) Baby, please come home
(Christmas) Baby, please come home
(Christmas) Baby, please come home
(Christmas) Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Christmas) I need you, I need you
(Christmas) Please come home

(Christmas)
(Christmas)
(Christmas)
(Christmas)
