4: Be My Christmas Gift If you sat beneath the Christmas tree, You’d sure add to the décor, But even if you were gift wrapped, dear, I couldn't love you more. You have to know that if I had you, I’d have the gift I’d most adore, Better than any expensive gift I could purchase in a store. If you hug me tight, you wonderful thing, And be my Christmas gift, You’ll brighten my days forevermore And give my heart a lift. - By Karl Fuchs
