Burl Ives – Christmas Can't Be Far Away lyrics

A neighbor tipped his hat to me this mornin'
The landlord even smiled and said good day
And I want you to know that a stranger said hello
Christmas can't be far away

Old tight wad down the street is a buying candy
To pass out to the neighbor kids at play
The town is on the go and the weather man says snow
Christmas can't be far away

The small fry on our block have all been saving
And now their hiding things and looking sly
Mum will get that doodad she's been craving
And dad will get his usual Christmas tie

Both young and old are planning sweet surprises
They'll soon be tied with ribbons bright and gay
Good will is in the air and you feel it everywhere
Christmas can't be far away

Good will is in the air and you feel it everywhere
Christmas can't be far away
