Tenth Avenue North – The First Christmas lyrics
No room in the end
No toys by the tree
No lights, no presents, no snow, no Bing

The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
Yeah, but we finally got what we need
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)

Alright, let me tell you a little story

In a dirty little stable in Bethlehem
Mary and Joseph had nothing
But the light of the world came down from the heavens
The shepherds and the magi came a-runnin' just to meet him
"Hallelujah," the angels sing
That first Christmas

No stockings on the mantle
Parades or movies
No Santa, no cookies, no office parties

The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
That first Christmas (that first Christmas)
But the world, we got what we need
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)

Saxophone!
Come on Zach
Yeah
Come on guitar

No special cup from Starbucks
Or shopping online
But with Jesus in the manger
They were doing just fine

The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
'Cause we finally got what we need
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)

Yeah we finally got what we need
That first Christmas
