I'd give anything to see
A little Christmas tree
And to hear, hear the laughter
Of children playing in the snow
(Woo) to kiss my baby, under the mistletoe

But I can't promise my eyes this sight
Unless they stop the fight
'Cause I'm a prisoner of war
Lying here in my cell 
Hoping my family is well
Wish they wouldn't worry so much about me
Just try to get us home
In time for the Christmas tree

Listen
Oh yeah, oh 
'Cause I 
Want to see snowflakes fall
I, want to see Santa Claus
Oh, I want to hear jingle bells
Want to hear jingle bells ringing
But I can't promise my eyes this sight
Unless they stop the fight

Ooo, ooo, ooo 
If I can't make it home in time
I know you'll be keeping my spirits bright
By wearing my name, trying to stop this fight
Ah, but I'd give anything to see you the family
And that little Christmas tree

(Woo) I want to (want to see snowflakes fall) see snowflakes fall
I want to see Santa Claus
Oh, I want to hear jingle bells ringing
Yes, I want to hear jingle bells ringing

Oh, I want to see snowflakes fall
I want to see Santa Claus
Oh, I want to hear jingle bells ringing, ringing
I want to hear jingle bells (ringing) ringing

Oh, I want to see snowflakes fall
I, want to see Santa Claus
Darling, I want to hear jingle bells ringing
I miss you babe
I want to hear jingle bells, I miss you darling, I miss the kids

Oh, I want to see snowflakes fall
I, want to see Santa Claus
I want to hear jingle bells, oh
I want to hear jingle bells
