“All I Want for Christmas Is You”

I can’t believe that there are only a couple of weeks until Christmas! 😮

One of my favorite things about Christmas is the music! ❤ I have to say that I primarily enjoy listening to the traditional Christmas songs and can be a hard critic when I hear a modern Christmas song. 😉 However, I have made exceptions for some modern Christmas songs. 🙂

One of those songs is Mariah Carey’s, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”

Lyrics:

Written by Mariah Carey, Walter Afanasieff • Copyright © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, Universal Music Publishing Group

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 oh
All I want for Christmas is you

 

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
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

I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I won’t even wish for snow, and I
I just wanna 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 reindeer click

 

‘Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Oh, Baby all I want for Christmas is you

 

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 quickly

 

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all I’m asking for
I just wanna see my baby
Standing right outside my door

 

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

The first time I heard this song, it made me excited! It is filled with so much happiness, energy, and passion that every time I hear it, I cannot help but feel excited and happy! ❤

The message of the song is that being with the one you love on Christmas is the best gift of all, and pairing this message with Mariah’s amazing voice just gives me the goosebumps!

I hope you watch the video for this song. The song itself and the video will surely make you smile. 🙂

What is one of your favorite Christmas songs?

    • Thank you for sharing, Dawn! I recently heard that song on the radio, and I was so surprised to hear that Bing Crosby and David Bowie sang that song! 😮 I had no idea who sang it but always liked that version of “The Little Drummer Boy”!

Thoughts? Please post them :-)
