There are happy tunes drifting upon the air
All the retailers have put them there
Sleigh bells and Santa with food and drink
All for just profit I must confess I think
It's a world gone mad to make us acquire
To fan greedy flames of increasing desire
But from this celebration ahead of its time
The Christmas spirit has its own timeless rhyme
And for all my intelligence I have no will
For the child in me wishes for Christmas still
It seeks no presents or tree to place them under
All it desires is to recapture all the wonder
So if you are celebrating before the holidays are here
Try to remember Christmas has to last all the year
