Aiken, Clay - Don't Save It All For Christmas Day Lyrics

Don't get so busy that you miss
Giving just a little kiss
To the ones you love
And don't even wait a little while
To give them a little smile
A little is enough

How many people are crying
Some people are dying...
How many people are askin’ for love

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
Cause holidays have come and gone
But love lives on
If you give on

How could you wait another minute
A hug is warmer when you're in it
Oh Baby that's a fact
And saying "I love you's" always better
Seasons, reasons, they don't matter
So don't hold back
How many people in this world
So needful in this world
How many people are praying for love

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday
Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
Cause holidays have come and gone
But love lives on
If you give on
Give love…..

Let all the children know
Everywhere that they go
Their whole life long
Let them know love

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh [sung over Don't save it all for Christmas Day]
Yeah, and give a little love everyday

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
Cause holidays have come and gone

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
Cause holidays have come and gone

  1. ellen munson

    saw him do this song several times.  He has one of the most powerful voices I have ever heard.  I saw Pavarotti and he rivals him.............Go CLAY.........

  2. Joan Louise

    He is one of the modern talents and American Idol golden nugget!

  3. Nicholas Walz

    Not gonna lie, I came hard when homeboy soared with that high note. Merry Christmas.

    -On The Third Night Before Christmas Eve! Dutch Earthquake ‘Enthusiast’ Claims to Predict Major Tremor

    -Twas the night, before the night, before the night, before Christmas Eve, guess what December day I am? No, no, no, every to all creatures were stirring about with might, my dads all out war on the mouse and the mice. No, the stocking weren't all hanging by the chimney with care, okay, because in my hood, we had no Santa into chimney's into fire places, here. See, there's my dad now, taking a break, decked in his Raider's Mack Jersey and matching cap, all nestled to settled down, for a full stomach, nap.

    -No way were the kids all nestled in bed for a long, winter's snap, the youngest two as usual, were in front of a game of fortnight, fussing along their own war, to fist and fights. My eldest sister, this year, man, away, P. farming, no man's zone, wondering, dancing, she her mourns, would he ever get there, she being, all alone?

    -Then there's the dark horse bro, probably out with his killer girl, no doubt looking for more of those killer, banging, clothes he be wearing, dap, dap, bomb. Awwww, my most gentle and kind male family member, over there, kinda on lock up himself, singing, wishing, praying for Christmas day, that he's also here or on his way. Don't get me started, my travel, the nation, nod head brother, away for miles and miles, yet wondering, how did he get trapped, by those California wild fires? Did I mention my mom? This kerchief tied, her head, sitting, knitting, whatever all that is, not even here, out somewhere as usual, shopping with aunt Guinevere.

    -What's that, where am I? Shhhh, shush, I'm in the kitchen, sneaking just a bite of grandma sweet potatoes pies, that no one can have just one bite of, to save their miserable lives. Still, joy to the world, our Savior is Born, there is yet one Wonderful, Winter land story to be told, it's zero tempts, frozen outside the door, and look, weeee, there's, snow, ahhhh, snap, there's my mom, and she's not alone, I'm gone, ah, happy holidays everyone, hope you make it home! ....Happy Holiday Everyone, Happy New Year, Apb,

    Here is my version

  14. gardensofthegods

    Hi Malvena McCloud..

    did u see the time he was on Kelly Ripa's show and she was not very nice to him


    I just saw part of that show recently. Clay jokingly put his hand over her mouth to stop her from saying something. She had a moo cow. Guess she thinks nobody should be able to touch her.

  15. tieha tia

    Come hear because of NAM WOOHYUN

  16. Arlene Elliott

    My friend was playing this CD I heard the song and love it she brought me the CD for Christmas and played it over and over for years, the season is not Christmas without this song. He can sing heard others but this is the bomb even my grandbabies love it.

  17. PLS Critic

    Childhood memories🤤

  18. McCrary Foundation

    Gearing up for the season and this song is a must do for our choir every year. It was an awesome privilege for our choir to sing the bgv's under the direction of our brother Howard McCrary. Can't believe we performed this piece over a decade ago. Clay really nails it with such conviction in his plea. Our family lives by trying to show love each and every day. Bewildering that we need this song more than ever. Blessings to you all out there and best of the holidays to you and yours! Charity

  19. Makhiya Martin

    I love this song

  20. Edgar Vargas

    oh my freaking focking god

  21. Joyce Bahr

    great song and great singer.

  22. BIGTONEonline

    Celine may have written this, but to me CLAY owns this song now! This is one of my all time favorites!

    Cathy Britt

    I so agree. just saw rubin and clay in ny for christmas show. He sings this so beautiful(its a beautiful song to begin with)

  23. Peter frye

    Love this song...he's so talented ! ! ! ! !


    Celine Dion made this song.

  24. The Sugar Venom

    This version is great, but no version comes close to touching the original version. Celine's version is just so festive and powerful.


    Wait, are you telling me Clay's versions is not the original?

    The Sugar Venom

    BIGTONEonline haha. Yep. Clay is not the original artist. Céline penned this song with two other writers and sang it originally on her Christmas album, "These are the Special Times"


    Robbie Baker Wow, I didn't know that!

    Jean Owen

    Celene sings through her [email protected]

  25. Judi Richards

    Fabulous song stupendously sung !

    Jean Owen

    So much conviction in his voice

  26. Andy Dibacco


  27. Winter Rose

    I like this one I like Celines a bit better :)

  28. monica mccartney

    Every time i listen to this song it reminds me of my mom and i close my eyes and i can hear her singing along, she LOVED this song

    Raheem Riley Quiz raw

    are you okay i haven't seen you in some time..

  29. D. Williams

    An all year round love song. Love it

  30. CheeryToes

    LOVE this Album, and this song and when he bumps that note up at 3:32 the hair on the back of my neck stands up - wow!! I went to his Christmas concert here in town years back and 1 thing I didn't expect is how big he is. He's tall! And he commands a large crowd of people with charm and humor - it was wonderfully intimate at it was a crowd of hundreds of people. The man can SING!

    Cindy Hedgepath

    Yes, Clay can sing. I have been blessed to see him on every tour including the Christmas tours. Most of his tours I traveled with 4 amazing women to multiple venues. I’ve been blessed to meet him personally several times. He was always gracious and went out of his way to make sure everyone were able to get their picture taken with him and to sign an autograph. Thank goodness that I have CLACK (video recording) of every tour saved and put away for safekeeping. I hope he does another tour somewhere down the road because I miss seeing him live.

  31. P James

    I loved Clay Aiken also!!!  I have been to 4 of his concerts and enjoyed each and every one of them.  His Christmas concert was absolutely fabulous!!!  Please, bring us back a singer who can impact us with words such as these days.  Please, bring the music industry back to the meaning and words of songs.  Clay Aiken went astray and went off on political issues that he felt were important,. 

  32. TØP GhØstie

    Have the cd my grandma is obsessed with that whooping around 17 second note we listen to it almost 2 times a day

  33. Willow Whiteflame

    I used to sing this all the time !!

  34. Kandee Cooks

    I love, love, love me some Clay Aiken! Love this Christmas CD! Been wearing it out since the day it was released!

  35. Melody Dickson

    Clay can sing!

  36. Alice Yousef

    if you love this you should listen to it sung by its co-writer and amazing performer Celine Dion <3

    The Sugar Venom

    Alice Yousef agreed. Céline's version is mindblowing. The notes she can hit! Not to mention, this is HER song so it's only fair she gets a listen too. ;)

    PLS Critic

    Alice Yousef Clay is better

    Cindy Hedgepath

    I like Celine and have heard both versions but Clay sings it the best. Hearing Clay singing it in person is even better.

    Jean Owen

    You can listen to Celine I love Clay

    Bray Rodriguez

    So true! Clay is okay. But this is Celines song after all. And she needs no introduction.

  37. Kathleen Standley

    Love his voice and the song

  38. why1itsme

    DAMN.  That money note gives me goosebumps every time.  This man can sing.

    The Sugar Venom

    why1itsme you should hear the original version, sung by Céline Dion. Her note is phenomenal, it gives me shivers.

    Cindy Hedgepath

    Why do you keep replying on every post about Celine? We know she co-wrote and sang it. But, 99.99% coming here to listen are Claymates and you aren’t going to change our minds. Celine’s good but Clay’s version is better. No-one tops Clay’s “glory” note and that includes Celine. If you like Clay’s CD version then you would be blown away to hear him sing it in person (Live)!

    Ashlie Smith

    dammm I get chills woooo wow love ❤️ him so much go clay love

  39. scribe712

    One of my favorite Christmas songs on my iPod. 

  40. Anniebean25
