The wonderful world of Christmas
Is a wonderful world to behold
The wonderful world of Christmas
Was made for the young and the old

Smile and good cheer of each neighbor
And children with cheeks all aglow
So warm is this Christmassy feeling
With the tree tops all locked up with snow

Listen to those wondrous bells
And you'll hear them say
Open up your hearts to all on this holy day
The wonderful world of Christmas
Is a joy from the moment it starts
The wonderful world of Christmas
Shall remain everyday in our hearts
Recorded: 1971/05/16, first released on Elvis Sings the Wonderful World of Christmas

I like it. Its plain, simple and evokes the season. I like these original songs better than old retreads like Silver Bells, Winter Wonderland, and others which you have hears hundreds of times by others.

Not outstanding. Nothing super special. But it's a pretty song, well sung that nicely evokes the best of the Christmas season. Leaves me feeling hopeful.

A really beautiful Christmas song with bells and all. Elvis sings it with great feeling.

A nice pleasant song that does not attempt to break new barriers but leaves one with a real good feeling and ready to enjoy the festivities

Great voice,good melody and really christmas feeling, not the best track on the album though, that honor goes to Merry christmas,baby, with I´ll be Home on Christmas day just behind it, IMHO. Now I´ll go order the FTD version, as I didn´t get around to that last year. By the way I gave it 4 stars.

This is such a beautiful song and it should definitely be way better known than it actually is. I love every song from Elvis' "The Wonderful World Of Christmas" album.

The title tune of Elvis 1971 Christmas album is a short, yet pleasant feel good track that while not earth-shattering is still a nice addition to the LP. Elvis' voice is outstanding on this one.
