  • It’s Christmas in a week and a day…

    The jolly season is aproaching fast
    Giving us a reason to be happy at last
    I just wanna give you
    The best that I have got
    And it’s yours to keep
    Waiting under the tree

    You know it’s christmas in a week and a day
    and I just can’t figure out what to give away
    So I just wrap myself in paper for you baby

    And then the christmas is past and long gone away
    I’ll be right in your arms with a card that says
    That I love you –
    Merry christmas to you baby

    We’re far from strangers
    You’ve got a special glow
    When we’re making angels in the beautiful snow
    I just wanna give you
    the love of my heart
    And it’s yours to keep
    Waiting under the tree
