lyrics

All the decorations are up
And there's people singing carols
And my Christmas shopping is going really rather well
Got presents for my best friend
My parents, sisters too
But I can't for the life of me work out what to get you

I'd buy you a necklace, but I don't think that you'd wear it
I'd buy you a pony, but I don't think that you'd ride it
I'd buy you some chocolate, but I think you're diabetic
I know you need some new socks, but that's not very romantic

I wish I knew what to get you for Christmas
Yeah, I wish I knew what you wanted
Oh, but I just don't know what to get you for Christmas
Want to get you something to make you happy

I could buy you a car, but I don't think you can drive
I could send you paragliding, but I'm not sure you'd survive
I could buy you some perfume, but you might think that you smell bad
I'm running out of ideas and I really really wish that

I wish I knew what to get you for Christmas
Yeah, I wish I knew what you wanted
Oh, but I just don't know what to get you for Christmas
Want to get you something to make you happy

And if you want to give me the perfect Christmas gift
I'll stand under the mistletoe for a Christmas kiss

I wish I knew what to get you for Christmas
Yeah, I wish I knew what you wanted
Oh, but I just don't know what to get you for Christmas
Want to get you something to make you happy

I wish I knew what to get you for Christmas
Yeah, I wish I knew what you wanted
Oh, but I just don't know what to get you for Christmas
Want to get you something to make you love me
