Lyrics I'M FILLED WITH CHRISTMAS CHEER
BECAUSE I GOT A WONDERFUL GIFT
THIS YEAR.

I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL,
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL,
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL
IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY.
I'M GONNA HAVE A HALO,
A BRIGHT AND SHINY HALO,
I'M GONNA HAVE A HALO
IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY TODAY.
I'M GONNA WEAR A PAIR OF WINGS
AND RIDE UPON A CLOUD.
WHEN MOMMY HEARD
I GOT THE PART
I DON'T KNOW WHY
SHE LAUGHED SO LOUD.
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL,
A PERFECT LITTLE ANGEL,
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL
ANYWAY.

THIS MORNING
I LOST MY FAVORITE SNAKE
IN A BATTER
OF MOMMY'S CHOCOLATE CAKE.
THEN I WENT TO THE STORE
AND BOUGHT SOME CHALK
AND SCRIBBLED THE NEWS
ON OUR FRONT WALK.
BUT I WILL BE AN ANGEL
IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY.
THIS MORNING
I MADE A BIG MUD BALL
AND I SPLATTERED IT
ON MY BEDROOM WALL.
THEN I HURRIED OUTSIDE
AND CAUGHT A MOUSE
AND MADE IT A HOME
IN SISTER'S BLOUSE.
THEN MY DADDY FELL DOWN
A FLIGHT OF STAIRS
THEY TELL ME
I LEFT MY SKATES SOMEWHERE.
BUT I WILL BE AN ANGEL,
A BRIGHT AND SHINY ANGEL,
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL
IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY.
