Christmas is the Time to Say "I Love You" - Billy Squier


[Chorus]
F                Bb             F
Christmas is the time to say "I love you"
F                 Dm                Gm
Share the joys of laughter and good cheer
Bb               G              F           Dm
Christmas is the time to say "I love you" - And a
Gm                C                    F
feeling that will last all through the year


[Verse]
F             Bb           F
On the corner carolers are singing
F                  Dm           Gm
There’s a touch of magic in the air
     Bb         G     F               Dm
From grownup to minor no one could be finer
Gm                                 C
Times are hard but no one seems to care


F                 Bb               F
Christmas Eve and all the world is watching
F                Dm                   Gm
Santa guides his reindeer through the dark
     Bb         G             F         Dm
From rooftop to chimney, from Harlem to Bimini
Gm               C             F        (Bb)
They will find a way into your heart


[Chorus]
F                Bb             F
Christmas is the time to say "I love you"
F                 Dm                Gm
Share the joys of laughter and good cheer
Bb               G              F           Dm
Christmas is the time to say "I love you" - And a
Gm                C                    F      (Bb)
feeling that will last all through the year


[GUITAR SOLO] (slightly different progression)

F Bb F  |  F Bb F  
Bb G F Dm  |  Gm C F  Bb


[Verse]
F                Bb             F
Just outside the window snow is falling
    F               Dm                Gm
But here beside the fire we share the glow
   Bb            G       F              Dm
Of moonlight and brandy, sweet talk and candy
Gm                              C
Sentiments that everyone should know


F               Bb               F
Memories of the year that lays behind us
F              Dm                 Gm
Wishes for the year that's yet to come
    Bb           G           F               Dm
And it stands to reason that good friends in season
Gm                 C               F
Make you feel that life has just begun


[Chorus]
F                Bb             F
Christmas is the time to say "I love you"
F                 Dm                Gm
Share the joys of laughter and good cheer
Bb               G              F           Dm
Christmas is the time to say "I love you" - And a
Gm                C                    F
feeling that will last all through the year


        Bb-Bb        G-G         F                Dm
So when spirits grow lighter and hopes are shining brighter
Gm                 C                 Bb     F
Then you know that Christmas time is here.

In the third line of every verse, the bass line ascends from a Bb to a D. The bass notes are Bb, B, C and then D.Chords should be: Bb B(dim7) F/C Dm
