When I was but a youngster Christmas meant one thing
That I'd be getting lots of toys that day
I learned a whole lot different when mother set me down
And taught me to spell Christmas this way.

C is for the Christ Child born upon that day
H's for Herald Angels in the night
R means our redeemer I means Israel
S is for the stars that shone so bright.

T is for three wise men they who travelled far
M's for the manger where he lay
A's for all he stands for S means shepherds came
And that's why there's a Christmas Day.

--- Instrumental ---

T is for three wise men they who travelled far
M's for the manger where he lay
A's for all he stands for S means shepherds came
And that's why there's a Christmas Day...
