I don't want a golden bracelet,
nor a shiny diamond ring.
I don't want a trip to Paris,
or any expensive thing.

I don't want an antique rocker,
not even a red silk gown.
I don't want personal possessions,
forget about the three foot clown.

The thing I want for Christmas,
isn't sentiments from the heart.
For if this is what I wanted,
you wouldn't know where to start.

So I'll tell you this now,
and I hope you know.
All I want this day, from you,
is just a simple "hello."

Thanks Denise. Well, this Christmas is going to be easy for my parents. I'm not asking for anythig. (All though my mom has done "whispered" to me that my dad is looking for me a CAR.      It was just a little mother-daughter gossip.) Hope you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Thanks everyone. Well, I haven't gotten my HELLO yet, but I did get my car. It's a 1993 Corsica. Better than nothing. I'm just happy about getting it. Thanks again.
