All I Want For Christmas – Lyrics
All I want for Christmas is a whole bunch of stuff
But anything that you can buy me won’t be enough
Because everything I’m hoping for is intangible
Like free health care and gun control

If you wanna make the world a better place
say alright (alright) alright (alright)

If you wanna peaceful world for Christmas day
say alright (alright) alright (alright)

Chorus:
Christmas is here
I know what I want this year
Presents and toys are fine
But I got bigger things in mind

Santa can you swing more love? More peace?
Because that’s what everybody needs
Come save the world with me

Santa Claus stop by the ghetto too
And bring lots of opportunity with you
Bring the day the government will realize
We’ll all be happier when it’s legalized

So immigrate, stop the hate, let’s educate
The more we do, the less we will incarcerate
7 billion people just below the moon
And if we come together, oh, the things that we could do

If you wanna make the world a better place
Say alright (alright) alright (alright)

If you wanna peaceful world for xmas day
Say alright (alright) alright (alright)

Chorus:
Christmas is here
I know what I want this year
Presents and toys are fine
But I got bigger things in mind

Santa can you swing more love? More peace?
Because that’s what everybody needs
Come save the world with me

Kids talk:
What do you want for Christmas?
I just want peace for everybody on earth
What about you?
I want hope for everybody
Tayjon?
I think I want homes for the homeless
Alina?
I want water for everybody
yaay

All I want for Christmas is to have a chance
So please take care of the environment
Take Mr. Gore seriously
And do what you can to stop global warming

No matter what they say, Barack you did real good
I hope that your successor
Does the things he or she should

That Mr. Trump, he’s an entertaining guy
But lets face it, really is he qualified?

Repeat Chorus

Lyrics by Macy Gray
