I have to say ... it seems to me
As a child... Christmas then appeared to be
A peaceful happy holiday feel
Wartime, yes .. . but I recall ... great goodwill
Neighbor to neighbor ... one to another
With love and respect and care for each other
Sharing what little they had for sure
In those days I enjoyed Christmas a whole lot more
Than all today's tinsel and the hard ruthless selling
I'm tired of it all ... without all the fuss ...
A good old-fashioned down-to-earth country Christmas?
Minus the hassle ... stress ... bally-hoo
I really would like that, I think... wouldn't you?
