Listen Now!

Special Present
00:00 / 02:25


Sing Along Now!


I have a special present
I can give it every day.
It's so magical, you see.
It's a very special present
'Cause the present just for you
Is me!

I can wrap myself in smiles,
To share with you a while.
I'm so full of many wonderful surprises,
Open up your eyes, and then to
Celebrate today I'd like to
Give myself away to you.


I can whistle you a song or two
And give you hugs the whole day through.
Cause I know every day of every season
I don't need a reason.


I'll wrap myself in bows and ribbons
Look inside, you'll see,
I'm really quite a lovely present.
To you I give the best of me.

When you open me I know you'll see
That you're a special present
Just like me.
