SANTA
Belle, I'll agree that it doesn't look good right now, but you're forgetting one thing. That nothing's impossible when it comes to Christmas.
(Singing)
THIS IS THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR, TRULY
WHEN CERTAIN THINGS YOU'RE ONLY HALF-EXPECTING
SOMEHOW SUDDENLY APPEAR
EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW

AND ON THIS ONE DAY OF THE YEAR, TRULY
IF YOU'RE FEELING LIKE THE WORLD'S AGAINST YOU
TRY TO SET ASIDE YOUR FEAR
AND THE WORLD MAY TURN AROUND

JUST OPEN UP YOUR EYES!
THERE'S CHRISTMAS MAGIC ALL AROUND YOU!
YOU MIGHT JUST BE SURPRISED
AT WHAT A HEART THAT HOPES CAN DO

(Lights come up on the loading shed, to half on the workshop. Music continues under)

TINKLE (an elf)
I can't believe you would turn down a chance like this.

SMASHER (a reindeer)
Listen, kid, pulling a sleigh on Christmas is a dream in every reindeer's heart. But we're never going to do it, and we've accepted that. Now is not the time to raise hopes only to have them dashed again.

TINKLE
But this time it can really happen because you've got exactly what this Christmas needs.
(Singing)
JUST OPEN UP YOUR EYES!
THERE'S CHRISTMAS MAGIC ALL AROUND YOU!
TONIGHT, THROUGH SILVER SKIES
YOUR HOPES-COME-TRUE COULD PULL US THROUGH

SANTA
THERE'S ONLY ONE DAY OF THE YEAR, TRULY

TINKLE
THIS IS THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR

SANTA
ONLY ONE DAY WITH THIS KIND OF MAGIC

TINKLE
WHEN NOTHING REALLY IS IMPOSSIBLE

SANTA and TINKLE
AND ON THIS ONE DAY OF THE YEAR
YOU CAN DREAM ANYTHING
WISH FOR ANYTHING
AND DON'T BE TOO SURPRISED
IF IT COMES TRUE
