Circle the block Find the empty parking spot Crowds in the shops Line ups that never stop Smell the winter exhaust Autos are idling, trying to defrost Shopkeepers smiling as presents are bought Startled looks when somebody coughs I always look forward to this The search for the perfect gift Anticipating how your face will lift Surprised that I caught the hints I'll bring it home tonight I know I'll get it right We’ll sit and laugh all night Beside the tree with Christmas lights Hear the bells and buzzers Children calling for their mothers Listen to those festive Christmas carol covers Circle the block Find the empty parking spot Crowds in the shops Line ups that never stop I always look forward to this The search for the perfect gift Anticipating how your face will lift Surprised that I caught the hints
