lyrics

HOW I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS

VERSE 1
I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS YOUNG
CHRISTMAS TIME WAS SO MUCH FUN
HOW I WOULD RUSH TO SLEEP SO EARLY ON CHRISTMAS EVE
ONLY TO WAKE AND SEE
WHAT WAS WAITING THERE FOR ME
HOW MANY BOXES WERE MINE UNDER OUR CHRISTMAS TREE
AND I WOULD ALWAYS SAY HOW I WISH CHRISTMAS WAS EVERYDAY
CAUSE IT WAS MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR
TO BE OUT IN THE COLD I WOULD MAKE ANGELS OUT OF SNOW
BETTER THAN MY SIBLINGS DID

HOOK
WE NEVER REALLY HAD A LOT
GRATEFUL FOR THE THINGS WE GOT
AND PRAYED FOR THOSE WHO HAD NOT
GRANDMA’S HOUSE IS WHERE WE’D GO TO
REMOVE THE PAPER AND THE BOWS FROM
GIFTS WE GOT FROM FAMILY FOLKS

VERSE 2
CHARLIE BROWN WOULD BE ON THE SET
BROTHER AND I WOULD PLACE A BET
OF WHO WAS GONNA GET THE MOST TOYS THAT YEAR
AND HE WOULD ANNUALLY WIN THE BET
BEING THE YOUNGER I WOULD GET
A BUNCH OF CHRISTMAS CLOTHES TO WEAR TO SCHOOL THAT NEXT YEAR
MOTHER AND ALL OF MY AUNTS WOULD STAND ‘ROUND THE PIANO AND SING SPIRITUAL HYMNS AND ALL THE CHRISTMAS GEMS
OTHERS RAN OUT TO PLAY
BUT I’D STAY BEHIND TO WATCH
AND IN MY HEART I’D SAY
THAT I’M GONNA SING AND PLAY LIKE THAT ONE DAY

HOOK
WE NEVER REALLY HAD A LOT
GRATEFUL FOR THE THINGS WE GOT
AND PRAYED FOR THOSE WHO HAD NOT
GRANDMA’S HOUSE IS WHERE WE’D GO TO
REMOVE THE PAPER AND THE BOWS FROM
GIFTS WE GOT FROM FAMILY FOLKS

WE NEVER REALLY HAD A LOT
THANKFUL FOR THE THINGS WE GOT
AND PRAYED FOR THOSE WHO HAD NOT
GRANDMA’S HOUSE IS WHERE WE’D GO TO
REMOVE THE PAPER AND THE BOWS FROM
GIFTS WE GOT FROM FAMILY FOLKS
