I believe it's the other way 'round -- "All I Want For Christmas (Is  
My Two Front Teeth)" is the original title. Will need to check the  
session sheet to be sure, but at least on my copies the titling "My  
Two Front Teeth (All I Want For Christmas)" appears to be on the  
newer pressing.

Take care,

"No more frisking as of old,
Or chasing his shadow over the lawn,
But a dignified old person, tickling
His nose against twig or flower in the border,
Until evening falls and bed-time's in order...
My cat and I grow old together."--A.L. Rowse
