It was almost Christmas time,
There I stood in another line
Trying to buy the last gift or two,
Not really in the Christmas mood.
Standing right in front of me
Was a little boy waiting anxiously,
Pacing round like little boys do,
And in his hands, were a pair of shoes.
And his clothes were worn and old.
He was dirty from head to toe,
And when it came his time to pay,
I couldnt believe what I heard him say.

Sir, I wanna buy these shoes for my momma please.
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size.
Could you hurry, Sir?
Daddy says there's not much time.
You see she's been sick for quite a while;
And I, know these shoes will make her smile.
And I, want her look beautiful if Momma meets Jesus tonight.

He counted pennies for what seemed like years
Then the cashier said Son there's not enough here.
He searched his pockets so frantically
Then he turned and he looked at me.
He said Momma made Christmas good... At our house
Though most years she just did without.
Tell me, Sir, what am I gonna do?
Somehow I've got to buy these Christmas shoes!
So I laid the money down;
I just had to help him out.
I'll never forget the look on his face
When he said Mommas gonna look so great!

Sir, I wanna buy these shoes for my momma please.
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size.
Could you hurry, Sir?
Daddy says there's not much time.
You see she's been sick for quite a while;
And I, know these shoes will make her smile.
And I, want her look beautiful if Momma meets Jesus

I knew that I got a glimpse of heavens love
As he thanked me and ran out.
I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me
Just what Christmas is all about.
I got a glimpse of heavens love
As he thanked me and ran out.
I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me
Just what Christmas is all about.

Sir, I wanna buy these shoes for my momma please.
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size.
Could you hurry, Sir?
Daddy says there's not much time.
You see, she's been sick for quite a while;
And I, know these shoes will make her smile.
And I, want her look beautiful if Momma meets Jesus

Wanna buy these shoes for my momma please.
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size.
Could you hurry, Sir?
Daddy says there's not much time.
You see, she's been sick for quite a while;
And I, know these shoes will make her smile.
And I, want her look beautiful if Momma meets Jesus tonight.

    What a precious song, to think of a child wanting his momma to have these shoes in time to meet jesus, remember at christmas time there are people that need necessities and not everyone will be able to give to their kids or kids able to give to their parents. Thank you to my children giving and calling and donating toys to others... I'm so proud of all of you. This song brings tears every time i hear it...

    This is one of the best songs of FM static. It's about a story of a boy who wants to buy her mom a pair of shoes but doesn't have the money. so the singer helped him.

    this shows the real meaning of Christmas.

    Great song By FM static
