I don't want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need I don't care about the presents Underneath the Christmas tree I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true oh All I want for Christmas is you
I don't want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need, and I Don't care about the presents Underneath the Christmas tree I don't need to hang my stocking There upon the fireplace Santa Claus won't make me happy With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas is you
I won't ask for much this Christmas I won't even wish for snow, and I I just wanna keep on waiting Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it To the North Pole for Saint Nick I won't even stay awake To hear those magic reindeer click
'Cause I just want you here tonight Holding on to me so tight What more can I do Oh, Baby all I want for Christmas is you
All the lights are shining So brightly everywhere And the sound of children's Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing I hear those sleigh bells ringing Santa won't you bring me The one I really need Won't you please bring my baby to me quickly
I don't want a lot for Christmas This is all I'm asking for I just wanna see my baby Standing right outside my door
I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true Baby all I want for Christmas is you
All I want for Christmas is you, baby

Justin Truth from New OrlransThe song All I want was Christmas is You was written and recorded by Vince Vance about 1989. I heard them play it at Christmas time festivals many times before M Carey claims to have penned it. A lawsuit is apparent unless she paid Vince Vance for the song then made up how she wrote it. Vince Vance is the band name. He is actually a relative of Ellen Degeneres.
Camille from Toronto, OhAhhh...Mariah, Mariah. I did not know until this month, December 2018, that she wrote lyrics. The song became an instant classic and everyone is familiar with the flirty & fun photo of her in the Santa garb on her album cover. To top it all off, she and Merry Christmas share the same initials.
Coy from Palestine, TxI agree with James, this song was ripped off. It is a very close copy of the song by Vince Vance and Valiants which came out in 1992. Carey and a big corporation (Sony) ripped off the title and even some of the words are similar. The song by Vince Vance and sung by Lisa Layne is a better Christmas song.
Ce from Miami, Flthe vince vance song is horrible.i like the one by mariah carey much better!
Carrie from Roanoke, VaThe Vince Vance song is nice, but wanting a significant other for Christmas isn't really an original idea, so Carey didn't "steal" the song. There are plenty of songs out there with the same title.
James from Ft. Worth Tx., TxMariah Carey is a rip off. This title and song was released in 1992 by Vince Vance and The Valiants and sung by the incredible Lisa Layne. Written by Andy Stone and Troy Powers of Dallas Tx. Its a damn shame that Ms. Carey was able to use the same words as a title for her song. Her lyrics are different. The Vince Vance song is my preference.
Louise from Newcastle, United KingdomAww, this is one of my favourite christmas songs. People tend to download it in their thousands in December.
