"Give me your love, on this Christmas Day.
Give me your thoughts when the chimes are ringing.
Send me the happier along the way,
Deep in my soul let your words be singing.
Give me your wishes, as bells sound clear,
Charming the air with their golden measure.
Give me your hopes for the unborn year,
Fill my heart with a secret treasure.
Give me the things that you long to say,
All of your tenderest dreams unfetter.
Give me your love, on this Christmas Day -
But, come across, please, when times get better."
