Only Thing I Ever Get For Christmas

Album: Under the Mistletoe (2011)
  • If you're the only thing I ever get for Christmas
    Then everything I wished for has come true
    You're the single item on my list
    You're my one and only Christmas wish
    The mistletoe is where I'll be waiting, meet me there

    I know someone out there knows what I'm saying
    Baby you're a girl who's wishing just like me (yeah, yeah)
    There is one, and you know who you are
    My gift to you is all my heart
    Make my holiday, and hear me when I say

    If you're the only thing I ever get for Christmas
    Then everything I wished for has come true
    You're the single item on my list
    You're my one and only Christmas wish
    The mistletoe is where I'll be waiting, meet me there

    In the morning I know everybody's rushing
    To see what's underneath the Christmas tree
    Know what I mean, 'cause I don't find it there
    Underneath the mistletoe is where
    You make my holidays, so hear me when I say

    If you're the only thing I ever get for Christmas
    Then everything I wished for has come true
    You're the single item on my list
    You're my one and only Christmas wish
    The mistletoe is where I'll be waiting, meet me there

    Only you can make this, a merry merry Christmas
    There is one, and you know who you are
    My gift to you is all my heart
    Make my holiday, and hear me when I say

    You're the only thing I ever get for Christmas
    Everything I wished for has come true
    You're the single item on my list
    You're my one and only Christmas wish
    The mistletoe is where I'll be waiting, meet me there

    All I ever wanted was you, this Christmas
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
    I need you baby
    You're the single item on my list
    You're my one and only Christmas wish
    The mistletoe is where I'll be waiting, kiss me there

    I'll be waiting, kiss me there
