Lyrics

All I want for Christmas is you
You’re the gift that’s made my dreams all come true
All I need for Christmas is here, finding every sweet surprise

Wrapped up in your eyes, waiting there for me
Underneath the tree, we’ll spend the day
Exchanging kisses, smile and say, “What a Christmas this is”

Long before the snowflakes appear
Without bells and mistletoe or the tinsel’s silver glow
You just look at me and oh, Christmas is here

Long before the snowflakes appear
Without bells and mistletoe or the tinsel’s silver glow
You just look at me and oh, Christmas is here
