What do you want for Christmas?
Santa’s on his way. [Santa gesture.]
I want a train. [Make locomotive actions with your arms.]
I want a train.
I want a great big train. [Make BIG locomotive actions with arms.]
A train?
A train!
[Move around the room like a train!]
What do you want for Christmas? Christmas? Christmas?
What do you want for Christmas?

I want a rocket. [Put your hands up over your head making a rocket shape.]
I want a rocket.
I want a great big rocket.
A rocket?
A rocket!
Prepare for lift-off…5, 4, 3, 2, 1, LIFT-OFF!
[Crouch down, with hands overhead like a rocket and count down. At “Lift-off,” shoot up like a rocket and spin around!]
What do you want for Christmas? Christmas? Christmas?
What do you want for Christmas?
Santa’s on his way.
I want a robot. [Make robotic actions with your arms.]
I want a robot.
I want a great big robot.
A robot?

I want a teddy bear. [Stick both arms out in front of you like a teddy bear.]
I want a teddy bear.
I want a great big teddy bear.
A teddy bear?
A teddy bear!
Right leg. Left leg. Right arm. Left arm.
Oh no!
[Sit down and one at a time, put out your legs and arms, posing like a teddy bear. Then, on, “Oh no!” fall over like a teddy bear might, staying frozen in the teddy bear position. Kids love it!]
What do you want for Christmas? Christmas? Christmas?
What do you want for Christmas?
Santa’s on his way.
Santa’s on his way! ♫
