"The Greatest Gift" - Christmas Song by James Corden | Sainsbury's Christmas advert 2016 - Song Video and Lyrics


Another year over
Where do they go to?
It's a mystery.
Now it's December
So much to remember
Before Christmas Eve.
I'm already late
And my train is delayed
Disruptions on the line.
I race into work
And the place is berserk
Yes, it's Christmas time.
I want to find the greatest gift
I can give my family,
But right now I don't have time to breathe.
The streets are chaotic,
The shops idiotic,
There's a queue for the queue.
A granny's taking her time at the front of the line
"Ninety-one, ninety-two".
There's a party at work
And the manager's twerkin' inappropriately.
To top off the day
Another train is delayed,
It's a catastrophe.
"Christmas time is here".
I'd like to spend the time
With the ones I love so dear.
I'm trying to find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
I don't have time,
There's only one of me.
Tell me how do people do it all,
I'll never get it done.
If only there was a way to be
In two places at once.
"Wait, that gives me an idea!"
If I wasn't alone,
What if I had a clone,
I could do so much more.
It would all be a breeze,
With a couple more mes
I'd have time galore.
I want to find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
The greatest gift I can give is me.
Now I can meet with the boss
And empty out my inbox all simultaneously,
Leaving me time to spend
With my family and friends,
Where I wanna be.
I want to find the greatest gift
I can give my family.
The greatest gift that I can give is me.
Repeat chorus



Presenting the new Sainsbury’s Christmas Advert – a joyous Christmas musical created in stop frame animation featuring vocals by James Corden. It tells the story of Dave, a hard-working and devoted Dad, who realises that the greatest gift he can give people this Christmas is his time. 


As the first snow falls, we find our hero Dave caught up in the Christmas whirlwind – all he wants to do is to get home to spend time with his family, but all sorts of Christmas duties and calamities are getting in his way. That is until he sees a gingerbread man on his daughter’s bedside table that they’ve made to look like him. That gives him a genius brainwave…
