Lyrics


ENDLESS CHRISTMAS
 
If you want to know what's really wrong with Christmas
Here's what I would certainly reply
It just goes by too fast, when you know that it should last
Way past the 4th of July.

So if I could have just one gift this Christmas
I'd wish upon the brightest star above
To send me down an Endless Christmas
And fill each day with unending Love...and Joy...and Peace...
'Cause I want Christmas endlessly.

At Christmastime we send out season's greetings
To all our friends and loved ones far and near
Packages to buy and Christmas cards to write
But what about the rest of the year?

So I'm makin' up my mind this December
To remember why the first Christmas was
And try to keep that candle glowing
And fill each day with unending Love....and Joy ...and Peace....
'Cause I want Christmas endlessly

I'm gonna hang on to that Christmas spirit
I won't let it melt away like winter snow
I'm gonna do my very best to share it
And shower it on everyone I know...

So when I'm takin' down the tinsle and the holly
And I'm packing all those ornaments away
I won't have to miss having Christmas
If I never let the feeling get away
'Cause I can have an Endless Christmas
If I celebrate it everyday
With Love...and Peace..
Christmas goes on endlessly.

TOYS
 
Chorus: Toys, Toys, Christmas Toys
Lightin' up the faces of the girls and boys
I can't think of a greater joy than Givin' those Christmas Toys!

Mom and Dad are still in bed, Matthew's wide awake instead
Down the stairs comes sneakin', careful not to speak
And he only wants to take a peek and open up the Christmas toys!

There's trucks and dolls and basketballs
And a wind-up puppy that walks
Spiderman and a Raggetty Ann
And a brand new set of buildin' blocks...
Chorus: Toys, Toys, Christmas Toys
Lightin' up the faces of the girls and boys
I can't think of a greater joy than Givin' those Christmas Toys!

Little John just learned to spell, he wrote a letter very well
He used a yellow crayon and licked the stamp so it'd stay on
Mr. Santa don't delay on bringin' those Christmas toys!

There's trucks and dolls and basketballs
And a wind-up puppy that walks
Spiderman and a Raggetty Ann
And a brand new set of buildin' blocks...
Chorus: Toys, Toys, Christmas Toys
Lightin' up the faces of the girls and boys
I can't think of a greater joy than Givin' those Christmas Toys!

The kids have all gone off to sleep, presents safe under the tree
But Dad just wants a bit of all the fun, they really had a ball
Now he's the biggest kid of all, playin' with the Christmas Toys!

Chorus: Toys, Toys, Christmas Toys
Lightin' up the faces of the girls and boys
I can't think of a greater joy than Givin' those Christmas Toys!

CHRISTMAS DAY ALL OVER AGAIN
 
Away in a manger in Bethlehem town
Jesus was born on Christmas day....
The wisemen came and they gathered around
When Jesus was born on Christmas day......

And like that sage, if I follow the Star
Straight to the cradle of my heart
And I open the door and let His love pour in
It's Christmas day all over again!
Chistmas day all over again!

Now, the world was in trouble and in darkness deep
When Jesus was born on Christmas day....
He made a lame man walk, He made a blind man see
Jesus was born for you and for me.....

He's my fortress, He's my rock
Jesus stands at my heart and He knocks
And if I open the door and let His love pour in
It's Christmas day all over again!
Christmas day all over again!
Christmas day all over again!
