"All I Want for Christmas is You" is a song featured in the Sesame Street Christmas special Elmo Saves Christmas. It is sung by Big Bird about how having his best friend, Snuffy, back is the only thing that he really wants for Christmas. It is not to be confused with the more famous song of the same name sung by Mariah Carey.

Lyrics[]

I don't want anything that you pull on a string,
All I want for Christmas is you.
Some jacks and a ball wouldn't please me at all,
All I want for Christmas is you.
I don't need some crayons or an automobile,
Just a shaggy person who can feel what I feel.
A necktie is neat, and shoes are a treat,
But they can't make me smile when I'm blue...
Don't get me a picture book to color and trace,
Don't buy me a rocket ship that goes into space,
All I need's a buddy with a smile on his face,
All I want for Christmas is you!
Uh, you can't see it, Snuffy, but I'm doing a little dance, 'cause I'm happy I'm talking to you. And I never danced on the telephone before. Now I'm dancing in a little circle...Now I'm doing a little soft-shoe...
A necktie is neat, and shoes are a treat,
But they can't make me smile when I'm blue...
I don't need a hula hoop, a top, or a ball,
Don't get me a cuckoo clock to hang on the wall,
All I want is Snuffy, who's my best friend of all!
All I want for Christmas is you!
All I want for Christmas is you!
All I want for Christmas...
Is you.
