Christopher Cross - The best Christmas
Tekst en muziek: George Green en Steve Dorff
(1992)






How many, many years ago
Still my heart recalls
The gifts beneath the Christmas tree
That stood so very tall
Papa sang the Christmas songs
While mama danced and smiled
That was my best Christmas
When I was just a child



We built a snowman in the park
We dressed him up so fine
We were young, life was fun
The world was yours and mine
Beneath the mistletoe we kissed
I whispered: “I love you”
That was my best Christmas
When you said you loved me too



So, let’s sing Merry Christmas
And hang our Christmas star
A very Merry Christmas
The very best so far



We woke up to a mountain of snow
The windows locked in ice
Miles from home, no telephone
The earth lay frozen white
The radio played Christmas songs
The ash burned warm and true
That was my best Christmas
Snowed in all day with you



The city wore its Christmas clothes
Carols filled the air
Girls and boys and shiny toys
And shoppers filled the square
Candy canes hung from a cradle
And a stocking by the door
That was my best Christmas
The year our child was born



So, let’s sing Merry Christmas
And hang our Christmas star
A very Merry Christmas
The very best so far



How many Christmas days we’ve shared
And once again we are
Glad of those that still live close
And missing friends afar
So, now we’ll make our Christmas wish
And pray that it is heard
For everyone’s best Christmas
With peace upon the earth



So, let’s sing Merry Christmas
And hang our Christmas star
A very Merry Christmas
The very best so far



Sing Merry Christmas
And hang our Christmas star
A very Merry Christmas
The very best so far



So, let’s sing Merry Christmas
And hang our Christmas star
A very Merry Christmas
The very best so far
