Frosted window panes, candles gleaming inside

Painted candy canes on the tree

Santa's on his way, he's filled his sleigh with things

Things for you and for me

 

It's that time of year when the world falls in love

Ev'ry song you hear seems to say "Merry Christmas,

"May your New Year dreams come true"

And this song of mine in three-quarter time

Wishes you and yours the same thing, too
