Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
When December comes, I bet you want to
Wrap me all up and take me home with you
See what I look like under them lights
We'll keep it quiet, whatever we do

[Refrain]
I'm just tryna keep my baby warm through the wintertime
I'm just tryna give you something to remember through the summerti-i-ime

[Pre-Chorus]
And whatever is on your list, I'll do it
Boy, whatever it is, you know I'll do it

[Chorus]
Merry Christmas, here I am, boy
Gonna love you, gonna give you all I can, boy, ah
Merry Christmas, here I am, boy
I'm the present and you know it, here I am, boy, ah
Merry Christmas, here I am, boy
Gonna love you, gonna give you all I can, boy, ah
Merry Christmas, here I am, boy
I'm the present and you know it, boy

[Verse 2]
I'll give you the fire I keep inside
Guide you all the way down, be your nightlight
Give you the sweetest kiss that you'll taste
Come unwrap me now, been waiting since midnight

[Refrain]
I'm just tryna keep my baby warm through the wintertime
I'm just tryna give you something to remember through the summerti-i-ime

[Pre-Chorus]
And whatever is on your list, I'll do it
Boy, whatever it is, you know I'll do it

[Outro]
Merry Christmas, here I am, boy
Gonna love you, gonna give you all I can, boy, ah
Merry Christmas, here I am, boy
I'm the present and you know it, here I am, boy, ah
Merry Christmas, here I am, boy
Gonna love you, gonna give you all I can, boy, ah
Merry Christmas, here I am, boy
I'm the present and you know it, here I am, boy, ah
