  1. Hello! Thanks for this song, but I'm longly looking for a record of Pat Hervey's song "One wish for Christmas". May be you'll be able to find it and post it here? It's a nice song, and it's nice for Christmas.

    1. I wish I could help you! Unfortunately, I can't find any reference to a recording of that name by Pat Hervey, or any other artist between 1950 and 1973. It is not on any of her singles or albums, nor is it listed in the history records of her recording sessions. I can't even find a single Christmas song recorded by Pat Hervey regardless of title. If you have some more information about it, please let me know and I'll try to dig a bit deeper. It could be that she performed that song live on a TV show and it was never recorded or prepared for official release.

    2. Thank you for your answer. May be I wrongly attributed this song to Pat Hervey? Here's the lyrics:

      One wish for Christmas

      If I could have one wish, for Christmas,
      And if all my dreams could come true,
      I'd wish that I could be safe in your arms,
      Wayting fo Santa and cuddling with you.

      I've waited all year just for Christmas,
      And pray you'll come home to stay,
      And now and forever you won't leave me ever,
      And each day will be Christmas day.

      I hung up the lights on the front porch,
      It started to snow yesterday,
      I put a star on the top of the tree,
      But I'm just not happy, 'cause you're not with me/

      Why can't you just make it for Christmas,
      And help me get rid of these blues,
      My darling, my baby, don't make it just "maybe",
      I'd love to spend Christmas with you!
