  • Music:

Time for me to get in the holiday spirit, I suppose.

There are three songs I actually love in Christmas time. There's Feliz Navidad, of course. Then there's this song (the version by Kenny Chesney):

Thank God for Kids

If it weren't for kids have you ever thought
There wouldn't be no Santa Clause
Look what the stork just brought
Thank God for kids.

We'd all live in a quiet house
Without Big Bird or a Mickey Mouse
And Kool-aid on the couch
Thank God for kids.

Thank God for kids there's magic for a while
A special kind of sunshine in a smile
Do you ever stop to think? or wonder why?
The nearest thing to Heaven is a child.

Daddy how does this thing fly?
A hundred other where's and why's
You really don't know but we try
Thank God for kids.

When you look down in those trustin' eyes
That look to you, you realize
It's love that you can't buy
Thank God for kids.

Thank God for there's magic for a while
A special kind of sunshine in a smile
Do you ever stop to think? or wonder why?
The nearest thing to Heaven is a child.

When you get down on your knees tonight
To thank the Lord for his guiding light
And pray they turn out right
Thank God for kids.

Thank God for kids...


And this one, by Skip Ewing:

Christmas Carol

I was playin' Santa Claus
Downtown on Christmas Eve
When a little girl of three or four
Climbed up onto my knee

I could tell she had a Christmas wish
Behind those eyes of blue
So I asked her, 'What's your name?
What can Santa get for you?'

She said, 'My name is Christmas Carol
I was born on Christmas Day
I don't know who my daddy is
My mommy's gone away
All I want for Christmas is
Someone to take me home
Does anybody want
A Christmas Carol of their own?'

Well, all that I could say was
Santa'd do the best he could
And I set her down and told her
'Now remember to be good'

She said, 'I will', then walked away
Turned and waved goodbye
And I'm glad she wasn't close enough
To see old Santa cry

She said, 'My name is Christmas Carol
I was born on Christmas Day
I don't know who my daddy is
My mommy's gone away
All I want for Christmas is
Someone to take me home
Does anybody want
A Christmas Carol of their own?'

Early Christmas morning
I got up and dialed the phone
I made a few arrangements
With the County Children's Home

They told me it would be all right
To pick her up today
Now my little Christmas Carol
Won't ever have to say

'My name is Christmas Carol
I was born on Christmas Day
I don't know who my daddy is
My mommy's gone away
All I want for Christmas is
Someone to take me home
Does anybody want
A Christmas Carol of their own?'

Well, Merry Christmas Carol
I love you
