Justin Bieber – Mistletoe lyrics
It's the most beautiful time of the year
Lights fill the streets spreading so much cheer
I should be playing in the winter snow
But I'mma be under the mistletoe

I don't want to miss out on the holiday
But I can't stop staring at your face
I should be playing in the winter snow
But I'mma be under the mistletoe

With you, shawty with you
With you, shawty with you

With you under the mistletoe

Everyone's gathering around the fire
Chestnuts roasting like a hot July
I should be chillin' with my folks, I know
But I'mma be under the mistletoe

Word on the street's Santa's comin' tonight,
Reindeer's flying through the sky so high
I should be making a list, I know
But I'mma be under the mistletoe

With you, shawty with you
With you, shawty with you
With you under the mistletoe

With you, shawty with you
With you, shawty with you
With you under the mistletoe

Hey love
The wise men follow the star (The wise men follow the star)
They way I followed my heart
And it led me to a miracle

Hey love
Don't you buy me nothing (don't you buy me nothing)
Cuz I am feeling one thing, your lips on my lips
That's a very, Merry Christmas

It's the most beautiful time of the year
Lights fill the streets spreading so much cheer
I should be playing in the winter snow (I know)
But I'mma be under the mistletoe

I don't want to miss out on the holiday
But I can't stop staring at your face
I should be playing in the winter snow
But I'mma be under the mistletoe

With you, shawty with you
With you, shawty with you
With you under the mistletoe

With you, shawty with you
With you, shawty with you
With you under the mistletoe

(Kiss me underneath the mistletoe)
Kiss me underneath the mistletoe
(Show me baby that you love me so)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

(Kiss me underneath the mistletoe)
Kiss me underneath the mistletoe
(Show me baby that you love me so)
Ohhh, ohhh,
Mmmm

    This song makes me feel so happy! I love it! It makes me want love :) I don't think it is trying to offend anyone or forget the true meaning of christmas! I don't even think it is about the mistletoe. It's about love. Love makes you forget some stuff and want to be with them. I didn't perticuarlly like jb until he did mistletoe and that should be me. Mistletoe is one of the sweetest songs I have ever heard.

    The mistletoe is still hung up in farm-houses and kitchens at christmas, and the young men have the privilege of kissing the girls under it, plucking each time a berry from the bush. When the berries are all plucked the privilege ceases. We moderns have conveniently forgotten the part about plucking the berries (which, incidentally, are poisonous), and then desisting from kissing under the mistletoe when the berries run out!

    I think it means that christmas is never goin away and he only wants one true girl which is me and btw you people out there trying to take christ out of christmas is jacked up because if it werent for him we wouldnt be alive so think about people if you want to have a gold manshion and anything you want up there in heaven than I suggest you ask him into your heart. And christmas isn't just aout presents it's about the birth of the everlasting god and jesus. So love all those who belive and who don't belive just trust in him it will happen any messed up life and no presents under the christmas tree ask him to help and he'll do it if you just belive god bless those love you guys!

    Mistletoe means that you should spend every minute of christmas with your loved ones instead of being with friends. That's what I do I spend it with the love of my life and my family and maybe sometimes with friends and that's about it. Mistletoe by justin bieber is a great christmas song. I love my family and my boyfriend ohh so much I don't know what I will do with out them at all they are my world and they help me move on in life to suceed in school which now I'm in college to help out with saint joesph hospital. That's about it to me know.

    The meaning to this, quite plentiful, wonderful song is very not-so simple. You see, he wants to be with his shawty. He wants to grasp his chance and kiss her. With the help of the mistletoe, of course. He knows that he has to do other holiday errands. Such as playing in the winter snow, chillin' with his folks, making a list. He does not want to miss out on the holiday. But this girl, is so intriguing. She is his infatuation. All I can say is, good luck justin. I'm sure she will meet you under the mistletoe.

    He finds his true love, basically like romeo and juliet and shes very sad that romeo is talking to his basically friend / ex- girlfriend. She walks off, with no attitude sad and gloomy:/ (why would you do that justin. Lol jk) romeo does everything he could to get her back by doing anything he could. Shes happy with the results, later that night they meet up and they have their everlasting 10 second kiss.

    Kissing under the mistletoe is first found associated with the greek festival of saturnalia and later with primitive marriage rites. They probably originated from two beliefs. One belief was that it has power to bestow fertility. It was also believed that the dung from which the mistletoe would also possess "life-giving" power. In scandinavia, mistletoe was considered a plant of peace, under which enemies could declare a truce or warring spouses kiss and make-up. Later, the eighteenth-century english credited with a certain magical appeal called a kissing ball. At christmas time a young lady standing under a ball of mistletoe, brightly trimmed with evergreens, ribbons, and ornaments, cannot refuse to be kissed. Such a kiss could mean deep romance or lasting friendship and goodwill. If the girl remained unkissed, she cannot expect not to marry the following year. In some parts of england the christmas mistletoe is burned on the twelfth night lest all the boys and girls who have kissed under it never marry. Whether we believe it or not, it always makes for fun and frolic at christmas celebrations. Even if the pagan significance has been long forgotten, the custom of exchanging a kiss under the mistletoe can still be found in many european countries as well as in canada. Thus if a couple in love exchanges a kiss under the mistletoe, it is interpreted as a promise to marry, as well as a prediction of happiness and long life. In france, the custom linked to mistletoe was reserved for new year's day: "au gui l'an neuf" (mistletoe for the new year). Today, kisses can be exchanged under the mistletoe any time during the holiday season.

    I like this song. It inspires me of love and passion. I really like that. I wish I was famous and I would sing a christmas song to my fans. I like to sing and I'm good at singing. I'm not going to say I sing fantastic or great but I do sing good. I wanna post a video on YouTube of me singing one of the christmas songs or normal love songs. I'll hope people will like it if I do post a video of me singing! So, yeah, I like "mistletoe" and keep it up justin bieber. Hope you sing more songs of love. Lol!

    Mistletoes are flowering plants (angiosperms) that obtain their nutrition by living on and parasitizing other plants. This relationship was observed across the european continent by ancient peoples who were so impressed with these plants that the mistletoe became interwoven into legends, myths, and religious beliefs (fig. 2). It will be my purpose to acquaint the reader with the historic origins of some of these customs, especially with those on the european continent, and why they have survived to some extent to the present day.

    Justin bieber is growing up, and he's trying to be a s** object like his friend usher raymond. No one really cares though, and his voice sounds good, and he's a guy, and he's young or was young, so he sells. But a christmas album? I thought how unoriginal, he should have a regular album. I guess its okay> oh and thanks to my mom, I learned the definition to the word shawty.

    I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions. Most people aren't aware of the almost unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites.
    The site that has the best deals is saveonbuycøm
    And I checked with the better business bureau and was told that it is all legit. How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don't know. I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 loews gift cards for $48. Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else?
    This song makes me want love so bad, every time I hear it. It is such an amazing song, and not just because justin bieber sings it, although that makes it ten times better than if a female artist were singing it. The "hey love" part is my favorite part. And it reminds me of past christmases, but this year, ill be under the mistletoe.

    Mistletoe is a parasitic evergreen plant that lives on trees such asoak, elm, fir, and apple. The parasitic plant has yellowish flowers, small yellowish green leaves, and waxy white berries. There are many species of this plant in the viscacea and loranthacea plant families. European mistletoe (viscum album) and american mistletoe (phoradendron leucarpum) are used as medical remedies. In addition to europe and north america, mistletoe is also found in australia and korea.
    Mistletoe berries are poisonous to cats and other small animals. There is, however, some debate about how toxic the berries are to humans, and there is controversy about whether it is safe to use mistletoe as a remedy. Mistletoe is also known as mystyldene, all-heal, bird lime, golden bough, and devil's fuge.

    Mistletoes don't always mean you have to kiss someone, you can kiss someone even if you aren't under the mistletoe. As long as its the person you want to kiss. Kissing under the mistletoe just makes it all the more fun. You never know who you will be standing next to when you are under it. You don't even have to kiss them on the lips, as long as you kiss them someone where on face, well that is what I was told. This song makes everyone wanna find that special someone and pull them under the mistletoe, I mean it makes me wanna do that(:
    By the way justin bieber, I love your songs, you always make the girls feel good about themselves even if you aren't directing it to them.

    Justin beiber can go fall in a hole full of grizzly bears hungry for electric eels because they like the extra tang that they give their tongue. Then after the grizzly bears rip him apart leaving only his head & abdomen they slowly and painful put him in a blender to drink him as a slushy because they don't like to keep the tang in their mouth for too long. After that, they crap him out and a swarm of flies eat him up. Never to be found again. ^_^.

    Well to the person that always buys stuff from online auctions what the heck are you thinking a boy will not care how much money you have so stop saving just spend your heart out on really cool stuff like a phone or something. I actually have a crush and his name is shane but I don't think he likes me like we both are in 5 grade and he said he doesn't know if he likes me because we just met and everything but I really like him and I only felt how I feel about him 3 times and in those 3 times we stayed together a really long time! So please send me hope even though you don't know me I really like him and I want him to ask me out! Oh and I really like this song.
