Shirley Temple — That's What I Want For Christmas lyrics

Lyrics/Music Irving Caesar/Gerald Marks
Make my mommy's life a song
Keep my daddy safe and strong
Let me have them all year long
That's what I want for Christmas
Let my dolls be made of rags
Fireman hats of paper bags
Just write love on the greeting tag
That's what I want for Christmas
Its a happy holiday
Every heart is light 'n gay
For Santa Claus you're kind I'm sure
To young and all the rich and poor
Won't you please for goodness sake
Do away with tummy ache
Give out lots of lucky breaks
That's what I want for Christmas
Yes, that's what I want for Christmas
I don't want electric trains
Twenty-dollar aeroplanes
Free our friends from aches and pains
That's what I want for Christmas
I like pretty shoes to wear
But if I could give a pair
To poor little children everywhere
That's what I want for Christmas
When the Reindeer pass my house
I was quiet as a mouse
But in my dreams I seem to see
Marching round the Christmas tree
Animals that never bite
Never giving any fright
Soldier boys who never fight
That's what I want for Christmas
Yes, that's what I want for Christmas
