I Can Tell When Christmas Is Near

Intro

Ooh
Mmm

Verse 1

Snowflakes are fallin' and angels are callin'
The whole world be happy and sing
Soon there will come the day of days
When Christ was born a king
Stories of old and a way they are told
Carry children far in the past
To times when hope and charity
Were things that made love last

Chorus

I can tell when Christmas is near
'Cause every house is warm as summertime
I can tell when Christmas is near
'Cause every heart celebrates each year
Mmm-hmm

Verse 2

And then when it's night by a warm fireside
All your visions dance in the flames
Yuletide carols offer peace on earth
And no day is the same

Chorus

I can tell when Christmas is near
'Cause every house is warm as summertime
I can tell when Christmas is near
'Cause every heart celebrates each year

Bridge

La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la

Verse 3

Ah, the turkey is roastin' and everyone's toastin'
To things that make life worthwhile
And someone is seeking a real special joy
For one little special guy
In all meditation, there is new salvation
A prayer of love toward all men
The meaning of Christmas brings joy to our life
It's felt deep down within, ah

Chorus

I can tell when Christmas is near
'Cause every house is warm as summertime
I can tell when Christmas is near
'Cause every house is warm as summertime
I can tell when Christmas is near
'Cause every house is warm as summertime
I can tell when Christmas is near
'Cause every house is warm as summertime

Outro

La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
['Cause every house is warm as summertime
La-la
