"I Want You For Christmas"

Lyrics:


I Want You For Christmas,

Anything that Santa would bring could never compare with you.

I Want You For Christmas,

You're a pet that money can't get and nothing but you will do.

Oh, I just wrote a letter,

And if my wish comes true.

You can bet by jimney he’ll come down the chimney,

With a bag full of you, ooooh!

If only Santa does what he should,

I’m knocking on wood for him to make good,

Christmas morning baby I only want you.

You know Christmas will soon me here,

And that's one time of the year.

It's proper to plan a stocking for Santa,

Hoping that he'll appear.

On that pleasant day when presents are given away,

I just want one gift,

On December 25th!

I Want You For Christmas,

I don't want a diamond or pearl,

A duke or a earl won't do.

No!

I Want You For Christmas,

I'd give up a brand new dress for one caress from you.

Oh, I just wrote a letter,

And if my wish comes true.

You can bet by jimney he’ll come down the chimney,

With a bag full of Boop-Oopy-Doop-Bop!

Oh, I want you for Christmas,

I'm old enough to know what I want,

Oh, I want what I want.

Hmph, I'll get what I want,

Christmas morning baby.

I only want you!

Oh, I just wrote a letter,

And if my wish comes true.

You can bet by jimney he’ll come down the chimney,

With a bag full of Boop-Oopy-Doop-Bop!

Oh, huh-huh-huh...

I'm old enough to know what I want,

Oh, I'll get what I want,

I want what I want.

Christmas morning baby,

I only want you.

Tootsy-wootsy!

I only want you,

Aha!
