Dolly Parton - A Holly Dolly Christmas Lyrics






Holly Jolly Christmas

Have a holly, jolly Christmas
It's the best time of the year
Now, I don't know if there'll be snow
But have a cup of cheer
Have a holly, jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet
Ho, ho the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss him once for me
Have a holly, jolly Christmas
And in case you didn't hear
Oh, by golly, have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Ah, let's let these boys play some Christmas music
And that is sweeter than Christmas candy
Oh, I just love Christmas
All the celebrations, all the presents
Fun with family and friends, mm, mm, mm
Hmm-hm, hmm-hm, mm, mm, mm

Oh, every year, I love singing this song
And I thought, well why not just do a whole album
Called "A Holly Dolly Christmas"
So I did

Have a holly, jolly Christmas
And in case you didn't hear
Oh, by golly, have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Have a holly, jolly Christmas
It's the best time of the year
Now, I don't know if there'll be snow
But have a cup of cheer
Have a holly, jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And to everyone you meet
Ho, ho the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Won't you kiss him once for me?
Have a holly, jolly Christmas
And in case you didn't hear
Oh, by golly, have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Oh, by golly, have a holly jolly Christmas
This year
Ooh, yeah

Christmas Is

Mmhmm
Ah huh
Mmhmm

Christmas is a time for caring
Being at your best
Christmas is a time for sharing
Knowing you've been blessed
Christmas is a time for giving
Love is made of this
That's what Christmas is

Christmas is a joyful time
If you're the lucky ones
Some are blessed with gifts and trinkets
Others having none
Some have feasts up on the table
Others having crumbs
There are the haves and the have nots
And you could be either one

It's all about kindness
Love and compassion
Better to give than receive
That is a true fact
But those who don't know that
Well, they are the poorest indeed
And I hope you remember every December
That bright shining light from above
The promise from God's lips
The greatest of all gifts
Wrapped up in His wonderous love (His wondrous love)
So rejoice in His glory
The great Christmas story
And to all that you're sharing in will (uh huh)
You go tell it with passion (oh)
Of love everlasting (lasting)
'Cause that's what Christmas is

Is a time for caring
Being at your best
Christmas is a time for sharing
Knowing you've been blessed
Christmas is a time for giving
Love is made of this
That's what Christmas is

Mmhmm, mmhmm, mmhmm

That's what Christmas is

Cuddle Up Cozy Down Christmas

I want to cuddle up and cozy down with you
Wrap myself around you
Do what lovers do

Ah, the snow is fallin', passion's callin'
A glass of wine or two
I want a cuddle up, cozy down Christmas with you

Oh, we're not goin' anywhere (no we better not)
The storm is just too bad (oh, it's terrible)
There's no gettin' out of here
Old man Winter's seen to that
So here we sit
The candle's lit
And now that we're snowbound
Aw, what's to do but love on you
Cuddle up and cozy down

I want to cuddle up and cozy down with you (oh my)
Nestle up against your skin, do anything that we want to (mm)
Makin' love, hug and touch
And steal some kisses, too
I want a cuddle up and cozy down Christmas with you

We could both pretend we're sorry, act so disappointed
But to tell you the truth snugglin'
With you is all I ever really wanted
Now the fire is blazin', my thoughts are racin'
What we're gonna do (oh, baby)
When I cuddle up and cozy down with you
What do ya say, wanna cuddle?
Yeah, I'd love to

Do, do, do, do
Mm-hmm (do, do, do, do, do, do)

Cuddlin' with you, aw
The snow is fallin', passion's callin'
A glass of wine or two
I want a cuddle up and cozy down Christmas with you

Cuddle up and cozy down in a wonderland for two
Why don't we cuddle up and cozy down Christmas with you?
Merry Christmas, Dolly
Merry Christmas, baby

Christmas On The Square

Merry Christmas (merry Christmas, merry Christmas)

Merry Christmas to everyone (merry Christmas)



Christmas on the square

Everybody's there

Laughin', singin', bells a-ringin'

Snow is in the air

Carolers sing and gifts exchanged

Lovers walk in pairs

Trees a'glow and mistletoe

It's Christmas on the square



Christmas on the square

Catch me if you dare

Runnin' frantic, playful antics

Jokesters everywhere

Streets alight with snowball fights

You better duck, beware

Friends and neighbors cuttin' capers

Christmas on the square



Together as each year

We joyfully meet here

To celebrate family and friends

And we all stick together

No matter whatever

It's a wonderful town we live in (howdy, friends)



Christmas on the square

Nothing ordinar'

It's a holly, dolly, Christmas folly

I had to get that in there (why not?)

Coats and hats and such as that

And thermal underwear (underwear)

Scarves and sweaters

Furs and feathers

Christmas on the square



Come on, boys, I know you wanna play some

Yee-haw (well, swing your partner 'round and 'round)

Ah, you always fiddlin' around down here (what fun)

Well, all this celebratin', all this music and dancin'

Is makin' me hungry (well, what you got cookin'?)



There's turkey and stuffin'

And cranberry muffins

Potatoes and gravy and peas (yummy)

Cakes, ham and biscuits

However you fix it

You're in for a fabulous feast (let's eat)



Christmas on the square

Everybody's there

Sleighs and skates and chestnuts baked

Everybody shares (everybody)

Dancing mimes and such good times

I hope to see you there (see you there)

So come on down, enjoy our town

Christmas on the square



Oh, what fun for everyone

Christmas on the square (hey, fiddler)

Christmas on the square (banjo, banjo)

Christmas on the square

Celebrate, let's celebrate

Christmas on the square



Come on down, yee-haw

Circle Of Love

Ah, ah, ah

Circle of love, halo of light
When Jesus was born, on that Christmas night
And oh what a night, that Holy night was
When Bethlehem glowed, in the circle of love

God sent His Son, His great gift to us
Salvation for all, He loved us that much
We honour and praise, that gift from above
He holds all of us, in a circle of love

Circle of love, halo of light
When Jesus was born, on that Christmas night
And oh what a night, that Holy night was
When Bethlehem glowed, in a circle of love

Happy birthday to You, we praise and we sing
We celebrate You, we are so glad You came
Happy birthday dear Jesus, let us lift You up
How thankful we are, for all of Your love

So Jesus was born
Wore His crown of thorns
And He gave it all up
To save all of us

Circle of love, halo of light
When Jesus was born (Jesus was born)
On that Christmas night (Christmas night)
And oh, what a night, that Holy night was
When Bethlehem glowed, in a circle of love (ooh)

Ah

A circle of love, circle of love

To the North Pole for Saint Nick (mmhmm)

To hear those magic reindeer click (ah ha)(aw)

'Cause I just want you here tonight (mmhmm)
Holdin' on to me so tight (mmhmm)

All I really, really want you, baby (you, baby)

And all the lights are shinning (ooh)
So brightly everywhere (ooh)
And the sound of children's (ooh)
Laughter fills the air (ooh)
And everyone is singing (ah ah)

Santa won't you bring me
The one I really need
Please bring my baby to me quickly (please)

I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for (and I)

Standing right outside my door
I just want you for my own (ooh ooh)
More than you could ever know (ooh ooh)
Make my wish come true (ooh ooh)
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you

Comin Home For Christmas

Ooh ooh
Mmhm

Mama's in the kitchen, Christmas on the stove
Daddy's in the woodshed with ax and overcoat
Everybody's helpin' to place and trim the tree
The picture's almost perfect, it's only missin' me

But I'm coming home for Christmas, save a place for me
I'll arrive before Saint Nicolas, places gifts beneath the tree
Leave a candle burnin' and a key underneath the mat
I'm comin' home for Christmas
You can count on that (let it snow, let it snow)

Snow is gently fallin' as I make my way toward home
I hear sweet memories callin', I've been a long time gone
Nothin' like the family and friends to celebrate
The fun, the food, the music, of this special holiday

Oh and I'm comin' home for Christmas, save a place for me
I'll arrive before Saint Nicolas places gifts beneath the tree
So leave a candle burning, leave a key underneath the mat
I'm comin' home for Christmas, we can all depend on that

Ooh

Hang holly in the window (the window)
Hang tinsel on the tree (on the tree)
Hang mistletoe above the door and hang your hopes on me
I'm comin' home for Christmas, no place I'd rather be
I'm comin' home for Christmas, you can count on me

I'm comin' home for Christmas, you can count on me
Oh I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home
Mmhm

Christmas Where We Are

Mmhm
Oh ha oh, oh, oh
Hey, Billy Ray

Now I don't need Central Park or snowy weather
And I don't care if it's 98 degrees
Just as long as we can be together
Anywhere you are is fine by me
Well now, I don't need to wrap up boxes
Or put lights on a tree
All I want is you right here beside me
Your love is the only gift I need

Well, I don't need tinsel and lights
Or a tree with a star
All I need is to hold you tight
No matter how near or far
We can have Christmas where we are
Christmas where we are

Mmhm

You can have your Tennessee Christmas
And your evergreens
We can keep this spirit with us
Wherever it may lead
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

hoo hoo, hoo hoo

I can be your Silent Night
And I'll be your Noel
All the joy you bring to my life is
Sweeter than Silver Bells

Oh, I don't need tinsel and lights
Or a tree with a star
All I need is to hold you tight
No matter how near or far
It don't matter, baby
Don't matter how near or far

We can have Christmas where we are (Christmas where we are)
We can have Christmas where we are (Christmas where we are)
Mmhm
Oh, Merry Christmas, baby
Merry Christmas, baby
Let's have Christmas where we are

(Christmas where we are)

Pretty Paper

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write "I love you"
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Crowded streets, busy feet hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh
And there he sits all alone on the sidewalk
Hoping that you won't pass him by

Should you stop? Better not, much too busy
You're in a hurry, my how time flies
And in the distance the ringing of laughter
And in the midst of the laughter he cries

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils (pretty pencils) to write "I love you"
(Oh) pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write "I love you"
Oh, pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

You're not gonna believe what I saw, ha

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
She didn't hear me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom, fast asleep

Then I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

I saw it with my own two eyes
Not only were they kissing
They were drinking milk and eating cookies together
Now I know how to keep a secret
'Cause I want to stay on Santa's good side
You don't just tell everything you know
Nu-uh

(I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus)
(Underneath the mistletoe last night)
She didn't hear me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom, fast asleep

But I wasn't
I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

Don't you go telling it either
It's our secret, ha, ha

You Are My Christmas

When I think about what Christmas means
The celebrations and the scenes
Things that I hold dear and true

I mostly think of you
You, you, you, you're my
You, you, you, you're my
You, you, you, you're my
You, you, you, you are my Christmas (mmhmm)

You, you are my Christmas, my reason for the season every year
Oh you, you are my present, my future and my past
A love that's sure to last
The gift that keeps on giving joy and cheer
Oh, you, you, you, you're my
You, you, you, you're my
You, you, you, you're my
You, you, you, you are my Christmas (oh oh)

I thank God above
For sending me your love
It's heavenly and I feel warm and safe
Just knowing that you care
That you'll always be there
To stand by me with promises you've made

You, you are my Christmas, my reason for the season every year
Oh, you, you are my present, my future and my past
A love that's sure to last
The gift that keeps on giving joy and cheer
Oh, you're my Christmas (my, my, my, my, my)
You are my Christmas (my, my, my, my, my)
Oh, oh, you're my Christmas (my, my, my, my, my)

All wrapped up in love and lights
My heart a'glow, my eyes as bright
As ornaments and lights upon the tree
Ribbons of emotions flow
Lovin' package with a bow
A note that says I'm yours eternally

Oh, you, you, you, you're my (my, my, my, my)
You, you, you, you're my (my, my, my, my)
You, you, you, you are my Christmas (my, my, my, my)
You are my Christmas, my reason for the season every year
You, you are my present, my future and my past
A love that's sure to last
The greatest gift of all, sacred and dear

You know you, you are my Christmas
My reason for the season every year
And you, you are my present, my future and my past
A love that's sure to last
The greatest gift of all, sacred and dear
Oh, you, you, you, you (your my)
You, you, you, you (your my)
You, you, you, you (your my)
You, you, you, you (your my)
You, you, you, you (Christmas)
You, you, you, you (Christmas)
You, you, you, you (your my)
You, you, you (Christmas)

You're the heart and soul of me
I don't need gifts or Christmas trees
You are all I'll ever need
(You are my Christmas) My Christmas
The sweetest gift I've ever known
Love the precious love you've shown
Blessed to know that you're my own
You are my Christmas
