Ray Charles — Christmas Time lyrics

Down through the ages
Round this time of year
People's hearts all a-glow

Yuletide carols fill the air with cheer
While children laugh and play out in the snow

Lights on christmas trees
And snowflakes fallin' down
What a lovely site to see

You will always know when christmas time is near
You feel the need to be in harmony

'Cause christmas time
Is really more than givin'
It's spreading all the news of peace and love

Christmas time
Is all about receiving
The gift that god has sent from up above

People goin' here
And people goin' there
Buying gifts for those they
Know and love

Never stop to think
That the greatest gift of all
Is he who sends his love from up above

Waitin' in suspense
To open all my gifts
It seems like the time just creeps along
When we finally see the presents that we have
We open up our hearts and sing this song

That christmas time
Is really more than givin'
It's spreading all the news of peace and love

Christmas time
Is all about receiving
The gift that god has sent from up above

Christmas time
Is really more than givin'

Christmas time
Is all about receiving

Christmas time
Spreading news of peace and love

Christmas time
The gift that god has sent from up above

Christmas time
Is really more than givin'
