We Need A Little Christmas

We Need A Little Christmas lyrics, written by Jerry Herman, originally performed in Mame by Angela Lansbury on Broadway, later by Lucille Ball in the motion picture

Haul out the holly
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again
Fill up the stockings
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now

For we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
Candles in the window
Carols at the spinet

Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
It hasn’t snowed a single flurry
But Santa, dear, we’re in a hurry

So climb down the chimney
Put up the brightest string of lights I’ve ever seen
Slice up the fruitcake
It’s time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough

For I’ve grown a little leaner, grown a little colder
Grown a little sadder, grown a little older
And I need a little angel sitting on my shoulder
I need a little Christmas now

Haul out the holly
Well, once I taught you all to live each living day
Fill up the stocking

But Auntie Mame, it’s one week til Thanksgiving Day now

But we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
Candles in the window
Carols at the spinet

Yes we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
It hasn’t snowed a single flurry
But Santa, dear, we’re in a hurry

So climb down the chimney
It’s been a long time since I felt good, neighborly
Slice up the fruitcake
It’s time we hung some tinsel on that mayberry bough

We need a little music
We need a little laughter
We need a little singing
And ringing with the laughter
We need a little snappy
Happy ever after
We need a little Christmas now

We need a little Christmas now
We need a little Christmas now
