Signs of Christmas

Signs of Christmas

Presents wrapped in paper
Ribbons, bells and bows
Stockings on the mantle
Hanging mistletoe

Tinseled tree in window
Wreath upon the door
All the signs of Christmas
Here again once more

Lights in festive colors
Wink in falling snow
Visions of reindeer and sleighs in flight
Carolers on our doorstep
Voices high and low
Singing songs of peace and joy so bright

[interlude]

Snuggling by the fire
Holding you so near
Wrapped in a soft blanket warm and tight
Words of love and caring
Whispered in your ear
My favorite gift is in my arms tonight

Presents wrapped in paper
Ribbons, bells and bows
Stockings on the mantle
Hanging mistletoe

Tinseled tree in window
Wreath upon the door
All the signs of Christmas
Here again once more
Yes, signs of Christmas here for us once more
