I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true...
All I want for christmas
Is you...

I don't want a lot for christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stockings
There upon the fireplace
Santa Clause won't make me happy
With a toy on christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you...
You baby

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it
To the north pole for Saint nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeer click
'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Baby all I want for christmas is you

All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of childrens
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won't you bring me the one I really need
Won't you please bring my baby to me...

Oh I don't want a lot for christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is

    My father was hit by a train while working for the county. He was air lifted to st. Vincent hospital for treatment. This was the later part of november. We weren't sure if he would be home for christmas, but he came home this week. My mom ask that we find the lyrics to the song so we can sing it to him, because that's all we wanted this year for christmas.

    I'm sending this song to my boyfriend who I wish didn't live far from me and didn't have to help his mom, I just want him here with me on Christmas day and he is all I'm asking for as my present. He means so much to me more then he'll ever know and not having him here is really hard, maybe my wish will come true. Seeing him outside my door on Christmas day would be the greatest present I could ask for anytime. This is what All I Want For Christmas means to me. I know this song says it all for me and I feel and the same for my boyfriend about me.
