Christmas Long Ago
by Daniel O'Donnell



Christmas Long Ago

There used to be a Christmas tree
In the centre of the square
And it was strung with Christmas lights
And laced with Angel hair
All the windows of the shops
Were decorated bright
Shoppers rushing everywhere for a gift so right

Little kids are making snowmen in their neighbours yard
Christmas carollers singing, in a manger He was born
Lovers strolling hand in hand on streets of winter snow
That’s the way it used to be Christmas long a go

I still love Christmas, I love it so
The way it used to be, so long ago
With Christmas plates and mistletoe
Carolling, and big red bows, It’s Christmas
Long Ago

It used to be on Christmas Eve,
I’d listen from my bed
For the sound of sleigh bells
And reindeer overhead
I always seemed to fall asleep
No matter how I tried
But in my dreams old Santa came and took me for a ride

Next thing that I knew my mom and dad were at my door
Saying Merry Christmas, it’s the day you’ve waited for
A single star above our tree, I still can see it’s glow
That’s the way it used to be Christmas long a go

And that’s the way it used to be Christmas long a go
