It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas    (1951)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go.
Take a look in the five and ten, glistening once again.
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store,
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

A pair of Hop-a-long boots and a pistol that shoots
Are the wish of Barney and Ben.
Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk
Is the hope of Janice and Jen.
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go.
There's a tree in the grand hotel, one in the park as well,
The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon the bells will start.
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.

Lyrics by Meredith Willson.
Recorded by Perry Como and The Fontane Sisters; Bing Crosby; many others.
