Little girls, little boys
Dream of words, lots of toys
This time of the year
When Christmas is near

Evergreens are snowy white
Sleigh bells ring through the night
This time of the year
When Christmas is near

Somewhere near a steeple
People kneel and pray
And choirs sing carols of Christmas day
Santa Claus, oh, is on his way

Loads of joy in on his sleigh
This time of the year
Yeah, when Christmas is near

Somewhere near a steeple
People, they kneel and pray
Oh, when choirs sing
Oh, they sing carols of Christmas day
Oh, and Santa Claus, oh, is on his way

Loads of joy on his sleigh, yeah
This time of the year
Oh, when Christmas is near

Oh oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, this time of the year
And oh, when Christmas is near
Oh, oh, Christmas is near
