"December Song " as written by George Michael, Jule Styne, David Austin and Sammy Cahn....
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
May your every New Year dream come...

Sweet December song
The melody that saved me
On those less than Silent Nights
When snow would fall upon my bed
Like sugar from Jesus
And take me to the day
She could always smile
The Virgin Child would always show you see
Just to save me (Just to save me)
There was always Christmas time
To wipe the year away
I guess that Mum and Dad decided
That the world would have to wait

There was always Christmas time
Jesus came to stay
I could believe in peace on Earth
And I could watch TV all day
So I dreamed of Christmas

Maybe since you've gone
I went a little crazy
God knows they can see the child

But the snow that falls upon my bed
That loving I needed
Falls every single day
For each and every child
The Virgin smiles for all to see
But you kept her from me

There was always Christmas time
To wipe the year away
I guess that Mum and Dad decided
That the world would have to wait

There was always Christmas time
Jesus came to stay
I could believe in peace on Earth
And I could watch TV all day
And so I dreamed of Christmas
Yes I dreamed like you

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
May your every New Year dream come true

    General CommentDecember Song (I Dreamed of Christmas)" is a Christmas single released by George Michael on December 14, 2009. The track was originally announced during one of the last dates on Michael's 25 Live tour. It was available for free on George Michael's official website on December 25–26, 2008.

    The track was written by George Michael and longtime writing partner David Austin.

    During the Gerry Ryan show, David Austin confirmed that the song had originally been written with the Spice Girls in mind. After a few failed deadlines, the song was going to be given to Michael Bublé but George Michael decided to keep it for himself.

    The song features a sample from the Frank Sinatra recording "The Christmas Waltz".

    George Michael performed the song live on December 13 for the final of the 2009 series of The X Factor. The day after the performance, physical copies of the song were sold out in one day, forcing George Michael's record label to print new copies. Many fans have commented on forums of their annoyance at not being able to buy a physical copy of the single, possibly also giving the song a lower chart position than its true potential. The song debuted at number fourteen on the UK Singles Chart.

    General CommentThe accompanying music video was Michael's second animated one, with 2002's "Shoot the Dog" being the first. The video featured Michael as a boy, and it shows his view of Christmas from a child's perspective; shown by the visualization of sunshine, lightbulbs, and motherly love.
