Don’t Wanna Say Goodbye to Christmas

By Jimmy Rankin and Patricia Conroy

Even though Santa’s come and left this town,
Don’t wanna take the decorations down,
I’m leaving up this Christmas tree,
The holidays ain’t seen the last of me,
I’m as sentimental as you can get,
Don’t wanna say goodbye to Christmas yet.

‘Cause I’m a sucker for some mistletoe,
Charlie Brown’s my favorite Christmas show,
I can watch it over and over, to me that’s as good as it gets,
Don’t wanna say goodbye to Christmas yet.

Pour me another double jack and coke,
Fix me some eggnog for the road,
Take a walk down Main Street one more time,
So I can keep this feeling in my mind,
I gotta do it so I don’t forget,
Don’t wanna say goodbye to Christmas yet.

‘Cause I’m a sucker for some mistletoe,
White Christmas is my favorite Christmas song,
I can sing it over and over you see, with no regrets,
Don’t wanna say goodbye to Christmas yet.

I’ll admit it, I guess I’m just a kid at heart,
Get so excited as soon as the season starts.

Go ahead ring in the brand new year,
Sing Auld Lang Syne, I’m staying here,
Drink champagne from your paper cups,
Tell yourselves things are looking up,
Still got December dancing in my head,
Don’t wanna say goodbye to Christmas yet.

‘Cause I’m a sucker for some mistletoe,
Charlie Brown’s my favorite Christmas show,
I can watch it over and over, to me that’s as good as it gets,
There’s no one else like Nat King Cole,
Jim Stewart it never grows old,
Give it to me over and over, to me that’s as good as it gets,
Don’t wanna say goodbye to Christmas yet,
Don’t wanna say goodbye to Christmas yet,
Don’t wanna say goodbye to Christmas.
