Aight say hi my name is daryl
Hi my name is daryl
And dj jazzy jeff (and dj jazzy jeff)
And the fresh prince (and the fresh prince)
Wanted you to say (wanted you to say)
Merry christmas (merry christmas)
And happy new year (happy new year)
Yo this is dj jazzy jeff and the fresh prince
And we got our whole family and friends in here right (everybody)
And we're having a little fun and ho ho ho and merry Christmas and all that kind a stuff right
Now what we wanna do we want you to do we want every one to know that this is the season to max And relax and just take a little bit of time to send your grandmother that Christmas present or whatever But spend some time with your family (yep)
Its time to get back to the family cause our family is in here partying
Y'all ready to party (ho)
Say yeah (yeah)
(Hit it)
It's Christmas so I'm telling you all what is this
It's more than economics the point is being missed here
The yule tied spirit isn't down at the mall
It's in ya heart in ya house and with ya family y'all
You can't buy happiness and sax 5th ave
It's with your brother and your sister and your mom and your dad
So lets get it back together cause I don't know what a better time to be
The time is now y'all to get back to the family
Let's get back to the family
(Ya don't quit)
Now DJ Jazzy Jeff and yours truly the prince would like to
Take a couple of minutes to try to convince you that
The spirit of the season isn't found in a gift
It isn't found in a store it's in the people that you spend it with
So lets forget about the dollar amount because
More now than ever it's the thought that counts
The point that I'm trying to make is plain as day for me to call it
Giving is from your heart y'all not your wallet
Think back think back to the past
Think back to 4th grade making Christmas cards in class
Struction paper glitter and glue
The card looked a mess but to ya mom it was the best gift
That you could give her you know what I'm talking about
You put your heart into it and so your heart came out
Christmas cookies cakes and pies remember the way they made you feel inside (hit it)
Now that's what we need to get back to
Black white red and yellow please stay with me
Because now is the time to get involved with my rhyme again
And to get involved wit ourselves and get back to the family

Hey grandma lets dance let's dance
(I don't wanna dance)
Come on grandma lets dance
(I don't wanna dance)
I know your knee hurt grandma but lets dance
(alright)
Grandma slow down (hit it)
(Little Billy knocked over the tree)
(Little Billy knocked over the tree)
(Hit it)
What you get you got a sock
I got a G I Joe with a kung fu grip
Merry Christmas man
Merry Christmas and a happy new year man
From ours to yours merry Christmas and a happy new year
