Comes the time for Christmas, and I really have to ask
Bm                 G               A              D
If this is feeling merry, how much longer must it last
D                          G                      A        Bm  A
I wish your one-horse open sleigh, would come and carry me away
              Bm               G                 A              D
But I've been waiting here all day, and one just hasn’t come my way
    D                          G                   A                       Bm       A  
Now excuse me if I’m not being reverent, but I was hoping for a miracle to hold me, wash me
Bm              G                      A                  D
Save me from my righteous doubt, as I watch helpless, and everybody sings
        D           G       A                   Bm       A      Bm
If it's Chanukah or Kwanza, Solstice Harvest or December twenty fifth
Bm                G             A            D
Peace on Earth to everyone, and abundance to everyone your with

CHORUS:  D   G   A   Bm A     Bm   G   A   C  D D   C C   D D
         La Laaaa La La La La…             Laaaaaa

D                   G                     A                   Bm   A
Comes the time for Christmas, and as you raise your Yuletide flask
                  Bm               G                       A         D
There’s like this feeling that you carry, as if from every Christmas past
        D               G                    A               Bm   A
It’s as if each year it grows, it’s like you feel it in your toes
           Bm            G                A               D
And on and on your carol goes, harvesting love among your woes
          D               G                   A                       Bm       A  
      I want to buy into the benevolence, and I was hoping for a miracle to hold me, wash me
Bm                 G                 A              D
Make me know what it’s about, as the longing in me, makes me want to sing
D       G        A                     Bm       A          Bm
Noel or Navidad, season celebration or just the end of the year
Bm                 G               A                D
Christmas can mean anything, and I mean to keep its hope forever near

REPEAT CHORUS

        Bm       Bm     A        A          Bm       Bm         D    D
As if a cold and frozen soul was warmed, to love, by love’s own hand
            Bm         Bm    A         A         G        G       A
So goes the prayer, if for a day peace on Earth, and good will to men

At twenty below the winter storm it billows, but the fire is so warm inside
        Bm                              G                 A             D
And the children while nestled in their pillows, dream of St. Nicholas’ ride
            D                                G                 A                       D   A
   And how the next day they’ll get up and they will play, in the still falling Christmas snow    
    Bm                          G            A                      D A
And together we’ll celebrate forever, in defiance of the winds that blow
          D                           G              A                     D 
My God in Heaven, now I feel like I’m seven, and the Spirit calls to me as well
      Bm                      G              A                      D
As if Christmas, had made the winter warmer, made a paradise from what was Hell
        
        Bm       Bm     A       A          Bm       Bm         D    D
As if a cold and frozen soul is warmed, to love, by love’s own hand
            Bm         Bm    A         A         G        G       A
So goes the prayer, if for a day peace on Earth, and good will to men
