Up and down the street I see
Santa Claus and Christmas trees
White lighted reindeer nodding their heads
Houses glowing bright blue and red

The utility company loves this season
And Christmas lighting is the reason
Everyone tries to see who can be brighter
And next month their billfold will be lighter

Spiral trees sparkle, off and on they shine
With every color in their design
Big balloons of Christmas Scooby-Doo
And I've even seen some of Winnie-the-Pooh

Now there are snowglobes with flakes going 'round
As if we didn't have enough on the ground
There are lighted candy canes lining the drives
All this shows that Christmas is here, and thrives!

The yard decorations that I like the most
Is the nativity scene and the heavenly host
It is really what Christmas tries to impart
So we'll keep the True reason in our heart
