Christmas Song Revision



"It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas"
                                                               by Meredith Willson

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere we go;
Take a look at the shopping malls, with signs so shiny and tall
and shoppers with enormous bags in tow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Stuff in ev'ry store,
But the happiest sight to see is the fam’ly that will be
On your own front porch.

A pair of tall fashion boots and a basketball hoop
Is the wish of Carol and Joe;
Movies to show and piles of snow
Are the hopes of Moni and Pete;
And Mom and Dad enjoy a chat with ev’ry friend they meet.
                     
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere you go;
There's a tree in the Durham Museum, Andrea wants to see ‘im,
The sturdy kind with tinsel and lights aglow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the Mass will start,
As the choir begins to sing, peace is the grandest thing
Right within your heart. 

       Merry Christmas to All!
