Lyrics

It's the spirit of the season
You can feel it in the air
You can hear it if you listen
Everywhere, so much care, like a prayer
Whatever it is, you need to share it

It's the spirit of the season
You can feel it in the air

People smile as they pass you by
The day will be here soon
Dreams are dancing in the children's eyes
Hearts are singing, bells are ringing, too

It's the spirit of the season
Filling hearts with love and care
Let the shining star increase it
Everywhere, feeling there, like a prayer
Whatever it is, you need to share it

It's the spirit of the season
It's the spirit of the season

(instrumental break)

Snow is falling as you rush downtown
The city seems to glow
Laughter reaches from the happy sounds
Hearts are singing, bells are ringing too

It's the spirit of the season
Healing hearts with love and care
Like a shining star, it glistens
Everywhere, feeling there, like a prayer
Whatever it is, you need to share it

It's the spirit of the season
You can hear it in the air
It's the spirit of the season
You can hear it everywhere

Fa la la la la!
