(1st Verse)
Thought I saw an angel falling
But it turned out to be a star
Thought I should wish for something
Then I remembered how things are

If wishes were snowflakes
If dreams would come true
It would always be December
and I'd spend it with you

(2nd Verse
Thought I heard a bluebird calling
Turned out to be a crow
Thought I should know the difference
Then I remembered what I know

If wishes were snowflakes
If dreams would come true
It would always be December
And I'd spend it with you

In December
We'd stay warm inside
In December
We'd take the cold in stride

(3rd Verse)
Thought I had a carefree feeling
Turned out the be the wine
Thought I oughta know much better
But it's hard to tow the line
