I Wish It Was Christmas Today

I don’t care what the neighbors say
Christmas time is near
I don’t care what anyone says
Christmas is full of cheer
All I know is that Santa’s sleigh
Is makin its way to the U.S.A
I wish it was Christmas today

I wish it was Christmas today
I wish it was Christmas today, oh, oh
I wish it was Christmas today
I wish it was Christmas today, oh, oh
All I know is that Santa Claus
Don’t care about breaking or applying laws
I wish it was, wish it was
Wish it was, wish it was, oh

I don’t care about anything else
Christmas is almost here
And I don’t care what the newsman said
Christmas is full of cheer
I don’t care about anything
Except hearing those sleigh bells a’ring-a-ding, ding
I wish it was Christmas today
In the good old U.S. of A

I wish it was Christmas today
I wish it was Christmas today, oh, oh
I wish it was Christmas today
I wish it was Christmas today, oh, oh
Santa’s bringing goodies to the boys and girls
In every nook and cranny of this crazy ass world
I want it, I want it
I want it, I want it
