Gaye, Marvin - I Want To Come Home For Christmas Lyrics




I'd give anything to see
A little Christmas tree
And to hear, hear the laughter
Of children playing in the snow
To kiss my baby, under the mistletoe

But I can't promise my eyes this sight
Unless they stop the fight
Cause I'm a prisoner of war
Lying here in my cell
Hoping my family is well
Wish they wouldn't worry so much about me
Just try to get us home
In time for the Christmas tree

Listen, oh yeah, ooo
I want to see snowflakes fall
I want to see Santa Claus
Ooo, I want to hear jingle bells ring
Want to hear jingle bells ringing
But I can't promise my eyes this sight
Unless they stop the fight

Ooo, ooo, ooo
If I can't make it home in time
I know you'll be keeping my spirit bright
By wearing my name and trying to stop this fight
Ah, but I'd give anything to see you the family
And that little Christmas tree

Ooo, I want to see snowflakes fall
I want to see Santa Claus
Oh, I want to hear jingle bells ringing
Yes, I want to hear jingle bells ringing
Ooo, I want to see snowflakes fall
I want to see Santa Claus

  43. LLL Sr.

    This is Marvin using Christmas 🎄 as a vehicle to bring light to the POW's of the Vietnam Nam War..He always has a Message in his Music 🎶!

    Denise Mendez

    LLL Sr. I so agree

    Guinevere Wright

    This song always remind me of when my husband was in Vietnam and when our son was in the first gulf war in Kuwait during Christmas. Christmas can be a very lonely time for our military personnel when they are away from home.

    we were all POW's in that useless war, those of us lucky enough to go undrafted owe our current lives to the ones who were called to serve, thank you and Merry Christmas
