Christmas Eve
Everyone, everywhere
feels the thrill in the air
Christmas Eve, Christmas Eve
Christmas Eve!
All the streets snowy white 
as they sing "Silent Night" 
on this holy holiday eve! 
All the kids are so good 
go to bed when they should 
mustn't take any chances tonight!
They will sleep with a smile 
as they dream all the while 
of the gifts they'll receive 
Christmas Eve!
< instrumental break > 
La, la la, la, la la, la, la la 
la, la la . . .
If they gave me a choice 
if they left it to me 
I know just what my present would be
Peace on earth to all men
and good will once again 
all the things we truly believe 
since that long, long ago Christmas Eve!
La, la la, la, la la, la, la la 
la, la la Christmas Eve, Christmas Eve 
Christmas Eve!
La, la la, la, la la, 
la, la la  . . . to fade
