Lyrics Edit

I wouldn't trade Christmas, no no, never would I,
Wouldn't trade Christmas, I love you the best,
I wouldn't trade Christmas, no no, never would I,
Wouldn't trade Christmas, I love you the best.
It's time for the holly, the fun and the folly, and all of that jolly jazz,
The people are glowing, the Santas ho-ho-ing, each window is showing it has
All the latest in toy things, the daddy and boy things and all that
razz-a-ma-tazz,
But I wouldn't trade Christmas, wouldn't trade Christmas for New Year's Day,
Thanksgiving, Halloween and the rest. Christmas we love you the best.
I wouldn't trade, no, no. never would I, wouldn't trade Christmas, I love you
the best.
The traffic gets pokey, the turkey gets smoky, and all of that hokey stuff,
The people are shopping for things they'll be swapping like filigree boxes of
snuff,
Though you pour the hot toddy, to force everybody, though half of the toddy's
enough,
I wouldn't trade Christmas, wouldn't trade Christmas for Father's Day or
Mother's,
Valentine, and the rest, Christmas we love you the best.
The jingle bells jingle, you feel the old tingle, you buy the Kris Kringle
scene.
The idea is clever but subways will never quite handle that huge evergreen.
And the old office party, with Sammy and Marty, keep drinking until they turn
green.
But I wouldn't trade Christmas, wouldn't trade Christmas for Labor Day, or
Easter, Washington and the
rest, Christmas we love you the best.
