(West / Spreen)


Information:
Red West and Glen Spreen wrote If Every Day Was Like Christmas for Elvis, who recorded the song on June 10, 1966, at RCAs Nashville studios. Although the single release did not chart, some sources have credited it with sales of over one million copies. Co-composer Red West later had a recording of his own song on Brent Records (Brent 200).

 

Lyrics:

I hear the bells s
aying Christmas is near
They ring out to tell the world that this is the season of cheer
I hear a choir singing sweetly somewhere
And a glow fills my heart I'm at peace with the world
As the sound of their singing fills the air

1. Oh why can't every day be like Christmas
Why can't that feeling go on endlessly
For if everyday could be just like Christmas
What a wonderful world this would be

I hear a child telling Santa what to bring
And the smile upon his tiny face
is worth more to me than anything


1. (repeat)
