I 've got the right chords here, but I may have the wrong name labels on them for the key of A. (I'm not fluent in music theory.)

(A) // (E7) // (A) // (E7) //

(A) Christmas, (Gbm) Christmas (E7) time is near
(E7) Time form toys and (Gbm) time for cheer
(Bm7) We've been (E7) good but (Bm7) we can't (E7) last
(Bm7) Hurry (E7) Christmas, (Gbm) hurry fast
(A) 'Want a (Gbm) plane that (Amaj7) loops the (Gbm)loop
(A7) Me, I want a (D) hoola hoop
(D) We can (Dm) hardly (A) stand the (Gb7) wait
Please (Bm7) Christmas (E7) don't be (A) late!

(A) // (E7) // (A) // (E7) //

Okay, Alvin... any other verses??

Barry, you were perceptive to wonder about the chord names. In the key of A, we speak of F# chords (major, minor, seventh, whatever) rather than Gb chords. This is because F# is the name of the note in the key of A's major scale, which is:
A B C# D E F# G# A
The C# is not called Db, the F# is not called Gb, the G# is not called Ab (even though those pairs of names describe the same note) because of the confusion that would be caused by having 2 different notes in the scale with "C" (or "F", or "G", or "A") in their names. This convention also dovetails nicely with the key signature for the key of A having 3 sharps in it.
