WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS

Haul out the holly
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again
Fill up the stocking
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again nowFor we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
Candles in the window
Carols at the spinetYes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
It hasn't snowed a single flurry
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurrySo climb down the chimney
Turn on the brightest string of light I've ever seen
Slice up the fruitcake
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen boughFor I've grown a little leaner
Grown a little colder
Grown a little sadder
Grown a little olderAnd I need a little angel
Sitting on my shoulder
I need a little Christmas now

Haul out the holly
Well, once I taught you all to live each living day
Fill up the stocking
But auntie Mame, it's one week past Thanksgiving Day nowBut we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
Candles in the window
Carols at the spinetAnd we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
It hasn't snowed a single flurry
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurrySo climb down the chimney
It's been a long time since I felt good, neighborly
Slice up the fruitcake
It's time we hung some tinsel on that mayberry boughFor we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
Candles in the window
Carols at the spinetAnd we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
We need a little Christmas nowWe need a little Christmas now
We need a little Christmas now
