Well the news spread through Jerusalem, tonight a child is born
There are shepherds falling to their knees, and Angels blowin' horns
But in their golden halls the Pharasees
Scarfed and drank their wine
They said it's only Hebrew prophesy
We don't care and besides he just a kid
That's all he is
One more pebble in the gravel
One more rumor in the ravel
How can he be king?
He's just a kid

Well in no time he seen the world was knockin on his door
Full of miracles and wonders they had never see before
Soon the Pharasees stopped laughin
The silver sun was paid
And near the end he knelt down in the garden and he prayed

I'm just a kid
That's all I am
I'll need your strength too see me through it
If it is your will I'll do it
But how can I be king I'm just a kid?

Now I think about the baby and the man at Christmas time
Of mother's, son's and father's and children just like mine
About the power in unselfishness, love and sacrifice
The gift that we were given and the price

And how the news spread through Jerusalem, tonight a child is born
There are shepherds fallin' to their knees, and Angels blowin horns
I wonder how on Earth the Pharasees, could scarf and drink their wine
And say he's only Hebrew prophesy
We don't care and besides he's just a kid
That's all he is
One more pebble in the gravel
One more rumor in the ravel
And how can he be king he's just a kid

Oh how can he be king?
He's just a kid
Ooooh
