My Grown-up Christmas List

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs. It has a touching message and beautiful melody. I love the Michael Bublé version.

Grown-Up Christmas List

[via FoxyTunes / Michael Bublé]



My Grown-Up Christmas List
David Foster, composer

Do you remember me
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you
With childhood fantasies

Well, I'm all grown up now
Can you still help somehow
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream

So here's my lifelong wish
My grown-up Christmas list
Not for myself
But for a world in need

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Every man would have a friend
That right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list

What is this illusion called the innocence of youth
Maybe only in that blind belief can we ever find the truth

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal our hearts
Every man would have a friend
That right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list
This is my only lifelong wish.

This is my grown-up Christmas list.

This one is a piano version of "My Grown-up Christmas List" played by a young man from Russia who simply played it by ear by listening to Bublé's version.


This one is an interpretation by Aicelle Santos from the Philippines.


And from Australia, Anthony Callea of the Australian Idol.


This classic Christmas song as (originally, I think) performed by Natalie Cole with David Foster on the piano.


A Blessed Christmas to every one!
