• Well it is December and Christmas is almost here
    Another happy Christmas for family and good cheer
    There will be tables loaded with turkeys, hams and sweets
    We know there will be more than we could ever eat

    There will be a big tree shining so bright
    With beautiful decorations and pretty shiny lights
    Under that tree there will be present galore
    So many you would wonder how there could be anything left in the store

    Christmas now is really so much fun
    But gosh there is just too much for everyone
    My thoughts go back to a cold Christmas long ago
    To a family not blessed with riches and gold

    Our little tree was kind of skimpy, with some ribbons and a few shiny balls
    But to us it stood magnificent, the greatest of them all
    Under that tree was a present for Raye, a present for Sister and a present for me
    And we could hardly wait as we would open them with glee

    There was not a lot of fancy food on that table, times were kind of tough
    But we were all happy and for us it was enough
    We were so thankful as we thanked the Lord above
    We knew what we had was paid for with Daddy's hard work and Mamas love

    I'm thankful that we now have so much and our blessings are many
    And it is good to live in this great land of plenty
    But I would gladly give every material thing that I own
    To have one more Christmas with Mama and Daddy and my two sisters at home.
