Lyrics / Paroles


People making lists
Hiding special gifts
Taking time to be kind to one and all
It's that time of year
When good friends are dear
And you wish you could give more
Than just presents from a store
Why don't you give love on Christmas day
Oh, even the man who has everything
Would be so happy if you would bring
Him love on Christmas day
No greater gift is there than love

People you don't know
Smile and nod hello
Everywhere there's an air of Christmas joy
It's that once a year
When the world's sincere
And you'd like to find a way
To show the things that words can't say.

Why don't you give love on Christmas day
Oh, the man on the street and the couple upstairs
Who need to know there's someone who cares
Give love on Christmas day.
No greater gift is there than love
What the world needs is love
Yes, the world needs your love.

Why don't you give love on Christmas day
Every little child on Santa's knee
Has room for your love underneath his tree
Give love on Christmas day
No greater gift is there than love
What the world needs is love
Yes, the world needs your love.

Give love, oh give love on Christmas day
Every Tom, Dick, and Harry, every Susie too
Needs love every bit as much as you
Give love on Christmas day
(Fade)
