All I Want For Christmas

All I want for Christmas

By Mariah Carey

This song illustrates wishes and wants

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’s just one thing I need.
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree.
I don’t need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace.
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

I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I don’t even wish for snow
I’m just gonna [going to] 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 reindeers click.
‘Cause [Because] 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
Ooh baby!
All the lights are shining,
So brightly everywhere.
And the sound of children’s
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…
You

All I want for Christmas is you… baby (repeat and fade)
