"All I Want For Christmas Is You" as written by Mariah Carey and Walter N. Afanasieff....
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

    General CommentThat's illegal. She wants a human being for Christmas. Slavery is already illegal for about 2 centuries :P.
    Cool song to sing along with :P (exaggeratedly ofcourse). I know what I want for Christmas: you! :D

    General CommentThis song is great if you like Mariah Carey.

    Lyrically, it's so much like every other Christmas 'love' song. All they want is the one they love. It never stops there, though. When people get what they want, they always want more.

    General CommentI, too, think that this is a great song, the best Christmas-themed pop song since "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)" by Darlene Love. This song expresses ideas that are universal no matter the time of year. The things that make us happiest in life are things we can't buy. Also, the things we want the most are often things we don't (or can't) have. Things that are seemingly out of our reach have an ability to enthrall our imagination and tug at our innermost emotions. I could go on, but I think Carey's song puts it so much better than I ever could.

    General CommentThis song is like cigarette smoke to me. I don't actually like it, but whenever I smell cigarette smoke it reminds me of holidays in Europe and puts me in a good mood. And although I despise this song, it reminds me of Christmas and makes me happy.
