All I Want for Christmas Is You
Mariah Carey Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you, yeah

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need (and I)
Don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace (I)
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day

I just want you for my own (ooh)
More than you could ever know (ooh)
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you (you, baby)

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow (and I)
I just wanna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick (I)
I won't even stay awake
To hear those magic reindeer click

'Cause I just want you here tonight (ooh)
Holding on to me so tight (ooh)
What more can I do
Oh, baby all I want for Christmas is you (you, baby)

All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air (oh)

And everyone is singing (oh, yeah)
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won't you bring me (yeah)
The one I really need (oh)
Won't you please bring my baby to me quickly

I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for (I)
I just wanna see my baby
Standing right outside my door

I just want you for my own (ooh)
More than you could ever know (ooh)
Make my wish come true
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you (you, baby)

All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby




All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
