Perry Como - "Christmas Eve" lyrics

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
