Christmas Day

Christmas Day
(Difford/Tilbrook)

Mary and Joseph drove into town
Searching for a place to stay
The moon was up and his foot was down
A miracle was on its way
They tried the hotels the motels
The bed and breakfast locals
But no one seemed to have any room
Better find a double room soon

They found a place with the neon lights
TV, pool and vacancies
The man on the desk didn’t hear them right
When the two of them booked for three
They watched the TV and deeply
She felt the pushing neatly
And the heavens delivered this way
And it happened on Christmas Day, Christmas Day, Christmas Day

Mary and Joseph were so surprised
With admirers around the crib
There was something in their son’s eyes
That magnetically took one in
Like a messiah and a fire
Like the tread around a tyre
To grip all roads to fortune and fame
And it happened on Christmas Day, Christmas Day, Christmas Day

So where would Christmas be without
Mary and Joseph, Morecambe and Wise
Laurel and Hardy, cracker surprise
Lights on the pine tree and more aftershave?
And not forgetting Jesus
Who was born on Christmas Day

Christmas Day
