Lyrics: Having fun
It's the season
Love and understanding
Merry Christmas everyone
Time for parties and celebration
People dancing all night long
Time for presents
And exchanging kisses
Time for singing Christmas songs
We're gonna have a party tonight
I'm gonna find that girl underneath the mistletoe
We'll kiss by candlelight
Room is swaying, records playing
All the old songs, we love to hear
All I wish that everyday was Christmas
What a nice way to spend the year
Merry Christmas everyone
