We're gettin' ready for Christmas,
Bringing from the attic Christmas toys and things;
Music off the radio and carols,
Say: Hark The Herald Angel voices sing.

It's just a few more days before Christmas,
Children's eager happy faces say it's so;
Boxes full of memories just remind us,
How little time it takes for them to grow.

Teddy bears and dinkies, Barbie dolls and trains,
GI Joes and magic shows, Tonka trucks and cranes;
Rubik's cubes and movie stars, Lego castle walls,
Rock and roll and video, and cabbage baby dolls.

Now there's no need for stuff in stockings,
Waiting Christmas morning,
hanging on the bedroom door;
No fantasy of reindeers on the rooftop,
They don't ask if there's a Santa Claus no more.

He'll be going back again tomorrow,
In a day or two chances are
she'll be leaving on the train;
We hope there'll be a baby next December,
The toys have changed but
it's Christmas just the same.

Teddy bears and dinkies, Barbie dolls and trains,
GI Joes and magic shows, Tonka trucks and cranes;
Rubik's cubes and movie stars, Lego castle walls,
Rock and roll and video, and cabbage baby dolls.

How little time it takes for them to grow...
They don't ask if there's a Santa Claus no more...
The toys have changed but
it's Christmas just the same.
