It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Ev'rywhere you go Take a look in the five-and-ten, Glistening once again With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Toys in ev'ry store But the prettiest sight to see Is the holly that will be On your own front door.
A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots Is the wish of Barney and Ben Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk Is the hope of Janice and Jen And mom and dad can hardly wait for school to start again.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Ev'rywhere you go There's a tree in the Grand Hotel, On ein the park as well The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Soon the bells will start And the thing that will make them ring Is the carol that you sing Right within your heart.
