All I want for Christmas...

woensdag 24 december 2014 Gastblogger 3 Opmerkingen

Eén van de meest bekende Kerstliedjes is Mariah Carey's 'All I want for Christmas', al zo'n 20 jaar een favoriet bij velen. Omdat een relatie een optie is, doch we als single ook gelukkig zijn en de feestdagen niet gaan zitten wegkwijnen, hierbij een aangepaste versie van de tekst: nuchter, realistisch en feestelijk! 
Fijne Kerst!

I don't want a lot for Christmas
I have everything I need
I appreciate the presents
Other people gave to me

I just want to reach my goals
My ambition's not for show
I'll accomplish what I choose
I've got all I want for Christmas, it's true

I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Everything I want, I'll earn it
My endless drive will light the way

There's a boy who's caught my eye
I wish he was here tonight
I admit that would be cool
But I've got all I want for Christmas, it's true
True, baby

Oh, I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
I'm not going to keep on waiting
When I can do things on my own

I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
Santa Clause is good for children
But I can't count on magic tricks

I'm the hero of my story
I'm the one who'll bring me glory
With or without you
I've got all I want for Christmas, it's true
True, baby

Oh, all the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air

And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa, I don't need your matchmaking skills tonight
I'm the only one who'll do this right

Oh, I don't want a lot for Christmas
But I do have one small wish
There's a special guy I'm wanting
And I'd love just one small kiss

Oh, I'll just grab some mistletoe
For a Christmas party at my home
If my wish doesn't come true
I've still got all I want for Christmas, it's true

  1. :-) Prettige kerst iedereen!

  2. Inderdaad, het laatste wat we gaan doen, is zitten wegkwijnen. Voor al wie één van de komende dagen feest met familie, vrienden of gewoon alleen: carpe diem en geniet ervan!
