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 just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true...
All I want for Christmas is
You... yeah

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
(And I) Don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
(Ahhh) Santa Claus 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

Oh I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
(And I) 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
(Ahhh)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
You baby

Oh all the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere (so brightly baby)
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air (oh)
And everyone is singing (oh yeah)
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
You

All I want for Christmas is you baby... (Repeat-x7)
(Fade out)

    I lurve this song. To me it means she doesn't care about presents or all the Christmas things, all she wants is to be loved by the person she cares about.
