That's What I Want For Chrismas

That's What I Want For Chrismas

Inside the embers glow.
Outside the drifting snow.
Downstairs the world and its cares.
Upstaris a child and it's pray'rs.

Make my mommy's life a song,
Keep my Daddy safe and strong,
Let me have them all year long,
That's what I want for Christmas.

Let my dolls be made of rags,
Fireman hats of paper bags
Just write love on the Christmas tags,
That's what I want for Christmas.

When I wake up Christmas day,
I would like to find a sleigh,
But if I don't, dear Santa Claus,
I will not complain, because
What I really want is this,
Sister's smile, and brother's kiss,
Fill our land with peace and bliss,
From Maine down to the Isthmus,
That's what I want for Christmas!

I don't want electric trains,
Twenty dollar aeroplanes,
Free our friends of aches and panes,
That's what I want for Christmas.

I like boots with tops of blue,
Like my little sisters do
So if you leave them, leave a few,
That's what I want for Christmas.

When the reindeer pass my house,
I'll be quiet as a mouse,
But when I wake up, let me see,
Marching 'round the Christmas tree,
Animals that never bite,
Never giving any fright,
Soldier boys who never fight,
That's what I want for Christmas,
Yes, That's what I want for Christmas!
