lyrics

SANTA'S SLEIGH

WELL THE LIGHTS ARE BRIGHT IN THIS SHOPPING MALL
EVERYTHING AROUND GLITTERS LIKE A DISCO BALL
BUT MY HEARTS NOT INTO IT
AND THE GIFTS ARE WRAPPED BENEATH THE TREE
EVERYONE IS LAUGHING CELEBRATING FEELING FREE
BUT MY HEARTS NOT INO IT

CUZ I'VE NEVER BEEN HERE BEFORE
WAITING FOR A KNOCK AT THE DOOR
I TELL MYSELF I'LL BE FINE
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND

CUZ I'VE STILL GOT THE FROSTED WINDOW PANES
I'VE STILL GOT THE PAINTED CANDY CANES
I'VE STILL GOT THE TINSEL ON THE TREE
AND GOOD FRIENDS AROUND ME
I'VE STILL GOT THE STOCKINGS ON THE WALL
STILL GOT LOTS OF TIME TO DECK THE HALLS
I'VE STILL GOT EVERYTHING THING I NEED THAT MUCH IS TRUE
STILL I HOPE THAT SANTA'S SLEIGH HAS ROOM FOR YOU

AS THE DIAMOND SNOW SPARKLES IN THE NIGHT
I LONG TO WISH YOU MERRY CHRISTMAS IN THE PALE MOON LIGHT
PUT MY HEART RIGHT INTO IT

BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN HERE BEFORE
PALMS SWEATING NERVOUS UNSURE
I TELL MYSELF I'LL BE FINE IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND

CUZ I'VE STILL GOT THE FROSTED WINDOW PANES
I'VE STILL GOT THE PAINTED CANDY CANES
I'VE STILL GOT THE TINSEL ON THE TREE
AND GOOD FRIENDS AROUND ME
I'VE STILL GOT THE STOCKINGS ON THE WALL
STILL GOT LOTS OF TIME TO DECK THE HALLS
I'VEE STILL GOT EVERYTHING THING I NEED THAT MUCH IS TRUE
STILL I HOPE THAT SANTA'S SLEIGH HAS ROOM FOR YOU (I SURE DO)
HOPE THAT SANTA 'S SLEIGH HAD ROOM FOR YOU
