  • Welcome to my Christmas song
    I'd like to thank you for the year
    So I'm sending you this Christmas card
    To say it's nice to have you here
    I'd like to sing about all the things
    Your eyes and mind can see
    So hop aboard the turntable
    Oh step into Christmas with me

    Step into Christmas
    Let's join together
    We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
    Eat, drink and be merry
    Come along with me
    Step into Christmas
    The admission's free

    Take care in all you do next year
    And keep smiling through the days
    If we can help to entertain you
    Oh we will find the ways
    So merry Christmas one and all
    There's no place I'd rather be
    Than asking you if you'd oblige
    Stepping into Christmas with me

    Step into Christmas
    Let's join together
    We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
    Eat, drink and be merry
    Come along with me
    Step into Christmas
    The admission's free
    Oh oh oh
    La la la la

  • Tim from Kettering, OhGreat video and a different version of the song than the one released on record.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhA very classy Christmas classic! Upbeat & energizing. Right up there with Paul McCartney's "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time", John & Yoko's "And So This Is Christmas" and Tom Petty's "Christmas All Over Again".
  • Brock from Jackson, Miusually I do NOT like it when singers make Christmas or other holiday songs whether it's their own or they're doing a classic. But Elton and Bernie made this a very creative, nice rhythm, and meaningful.
  • Cj from Lalaland, --Definitely my favorate Christmas song.
  • Paul from Rothesay, New Brunswick , CanadaThere is an extremely fun video that was made for this song, featuring the band (Davey Johnstone,Nigel Olson, the late Dee Murray) and rare on camera appearance from lyricist Bernie Taupin. Corny as heck but good fun!
  • Mark from London, EnglandThis song had to compete with two absolute classic Xmas singles: "Merry Xmas Everybody" by Slade and Wizzards "I Wish It Could Be Xmas Everyday", so no wonder it didn't chart higher!
