LYRICS & WORDS TO KNOW

 

If I could only have one wish this holiday
Without a second thought I’d have to say (= I wouldn’t hesitate)
That you can’t find what I want in any store
I just want you to be mine and nothing more
No brand new (=very new) clothes could fill my lonely soul
When the snow falls on the ground and it gets cold
No expensive gift you put under my tree
Will keep me warm this holiday if you’re not holding me
I don’t want diamond rings, perfume or brand new shoes
Baby all I want for Christmas is you

Santa bring, on your sleigh (= a vehicle that slides on snow), just for me this holiday
The one I want and make my dreams come true (= make real)
I’ll be good every day, I’ll put some love on layaway (= keep something in store until it’s paid for)
And spend it all this Christmas on you
La la la la la la la la la la lay
Gonna put some love on layaway for you
La la la la la la la la la la lay
Gonna spend it all this Christmas on you

If I could win your heart and show you how I feel
Ain’t no way (= there is no way) you’re gonna find a better deal
I’ve been saving* all my loving for so long                                      *This is the present perfect continuous.
And after Christmas is over it still keeps going on
Everyday would be like Christmas from now on
Santa bring that love to me where it belongs

Santa bring, on your sleigh, just for me this holiday
The one I want and make my dreams come true
I’ll be good every day, I’ll put some love on layaway
And spend it all this Christmas on you
La la la la la la la la la la lay
Gonna put some love on layaway for you
La la la la la la la la la la lay
Gonna spend it all this Christmas on you

I don’t want diamond rings, perfume or brand new shoes
Baby all I want for Christmas is you
Santa bring, on your sleigh, just for me this holiday
The one I want and make my dreams come true
I’ll be good every day, I’ll put some love on layaway
And spend it all this Christmas on you
La la la la la la la la la la lay
Gonna put some love on layaway
La la la la la la la la la la lay
Gonna spend it all this Christmas on you
La la la la la la la la la la lay
Gonna put some love on layaway for you
La la la la la la la la la la lay
Gonna spend it all this Christmas on you
