Listen to song while you read lyrics!

I’d give anything to see a little Christmas tree
And to hear, hear the laughter of children playing in the snow
To kiss my baby under the mistletoe

But I can’t promise my eyes this sight
Unless they stop the fight ‘coz I’m a prisoner of war
Lying here in my cell, hoping my family is well

Wish they wouldn’t worry so much about me
Just try to get us home
In time for the Christmas tree
Yes, oh, yes

I want to see snow flakes fall
I want to see Santa Claus
Oh, I wanna hear jingle bells
Wanna hear jingle bells ringing

But I can’t promise my eyes this sight
Unless they stop the fight

If I can’t make it home in time
I know you’d be keeping my spirits bright
By wearing my name and trying to stop this fight
Oh, but I’d give anything to see you and the family
And that little Christmas tree

I wanted to see snow flakes fall
I want to see Santa Claus
Oh, I wanna hear jingle bells ring
Yes, I wanna hear jingle bells ringing

I want to see snow flakes fall
I want to see
