I was playing Santa Claus
downtown on Christmas Eve,
A little girl of three or four
climbed up onto my knee;
I could tell she had a Christmas wish
behind those eyes of blue,
I asked her what's her name,
what can Santa do for you?

My name is Christmas Carol,
I was born on Christmas Day,
I don't know who my daddy is,
and mommy's gone away;
All I want for Christmas
is someone to take me home,
Does anybody want
a Christmas Carol of their own?

All that I could say was
Santa'd do the best he could,
I sat her down and told her,
now remember to be good;
She said, I will, then walked away,
turned and waved goodbye,
I'm glad she wasn't close enough
to see old Santa cry.

My name is Christmas Carol,
I was born on Christmas Day,
I don't know who my daddy is,
and mommy's gone away;
All I want for Christmas
is someone to take me home,
Does anybody want
a Christmas Carol of their own?

But early Christmas morning
I got up and dialed the phone,
I made a few arrangements
at the County Children's Home;
They told me it would be alright
to pick her up today,
My little Christmas Carol
won"t ever have to say:

My name is Christmas Carol,
I was born on Christmas Day,
I don't know who my daddy is,
and mommy's gone away;
All I want for Christmas
is someone to take me home,
Does anybody want
a Christmas Carol of their own?

Merry Christmas, Carol...
I love you...
Welcome home.
