Shawn Phillips - A Christmas song
Tekst en muziek: Shawn Phillips
(1969)






He came in the way that the good things come
With the light shining in His eyes
And most people thought He was another little babe
That wrinkled up his face and cried
And then one wise man, two wise men
Three wise men come afrom afar
And the many colored men knew this was a special Child
And that’s why they followed that star



He came east and west, then He found himself
In fourty day and fourty night
He gave a lot of love to everyone He met
And He told them that the way was right
And then the people drew near, said they want to hear
What’s all this talking about
And everybody loved that Man so much
That they wanted to laugh and shout



But a bunch of people said He had the wrong idea
So they told Him to forget that thought
So a secretive society came about
And they were looking for the love they sought
And then the people in power said
We gave You an order: go back and be a carpenter
But the shining in His face told him He was right
So they put Him on a cross right there



Now He’s been gone for a mighty long time
We’ve forgotten what the Man had said, yeah
Look at your life in the right direction
And be sure to look inside your head
And when you get around your Christmas tree
Be sure to give all you can
’Cause the more you’re gonna give, the more you’re gonna get
To be a woman or a gentleman



Now Christmas and Easter ain’t the only time
That we should be that way
Love all the people and help your neighbour
Now each and every single day
And when you do that, you’ll feel where it’s at
You’ll feel what I’m talking around
And then the whole wide world is gonna live in peace
And everybody’s gonna be found
