Lyrics

Merry Christmas everybody! (Yeahhh!)

You know I feel so good (yeah)
I said I feel so good (yeah)
Well I feel so good (yeah)
Yeah I feel so good (yeah)
Well I feel ok (yeah)
On this Christmas Day (yeah)

I got a pocketful of money
And my baby by my side
You know I'm so glad
I'm so glad to be alive
That's why I feel ok
On this Christmas Day

I want you to turn up your hi-fi
I want you to turn it up loud
I want everyone to know
That we're jumping in this house
You know I feel ok
On this Christmas Day
Oh yeah

I think I know my

Because everybody here

You know I feel ok
On a Christmas Day
I better feel so good
Well I feel so good
I feel so good
You know I feel so good
Well I feel ok
On this Christmas Day

Ooh-ooh-ooh
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
