Lyrics


What would I like for Christmas this year,
Let me just think for a while,
Somethin’ real nice, to wear on my arm,
Already I’m startin’ to smile.

What would I like for Christmas this year,
I don’t mind as long as it’s you,
Anything else would just disappoint,
And even leave me feeling blue.

Chorus.
I don’t need, more aftershave,
Or yet another pair of socks,
I don’t need, anymore ties,
Or any sudden shocks. (so tell me)

What am i gonna get for Christmas this year,
I’m hopin’ its the sparkle in your eyes,
Somethin’ real nice, to make me feel good,
And take me up to paradise.

Instrumental.
Chorus.

(I’m sayin’)
All I want, for Christmas this year,
Is to know you’re gonna be here,
Not just, for Christmas time,
But each and every day of the year.

Maurice Vizard Nov. 2012.

Okay, now we're rollin'!
Nice one Mo. The sentiment is absolutely perfect in these times of greed and conspicuous consumption. It even SOUNDS like a Christmas tune ;-) My only nit would be that your voice is a little low in the mix though I got used to it as the song progressed. A very happy Christmas to you and your loved ones Mo. Cheers.

Great song
I think the pads combined with the vocals bring a nice softness to the song. Very nice work, much enjoyed.

Well Bob
There are certainly no big surprises with this song I know, but as you say it fits in nicely with the sentiments we expect at this time of year.... regarding socks; I don't actually get them, but you know what I mean.... they ar a predictable gift, regards M

For Christmas
Well if you can't get a bit sentimental at Christmas, when can you? Beautiful work, Maurice! Of course, if you don't get "the sparkle in your eyes" for Christmas, I can recommend champagne as a substitute :-)

sentimental Mo'.... I agree, Christmas is the time for sentiment and I'm very pleased you came along to listen and like this song....... I think a drop of Baileys will go down nicely to give me that sparkle LOL.... all the best to you and yours, regards M

This was just glowing with sly charm and one can't help but feeling good listening to you here Maurice. Thank you so very much for the swell work here and wishing you--well you know already! Merry Christmas! Michael

You old charmer! This could become the UK's No. 1 song at Christmas this year. A lovely melody with a backing that's perfect for the season. You are made to sing songs like this Maurice.

Cheers,
Doug

That's so complementary.... Burl Ives indeed. Glad you liked the Christmassy vibe and the bridge.... almost did different lyrics second time round, but thought it might be a 'Bridge too Far' LOL.... that's the kind of corny joke you get in a Xmas cracker, cheers M
