CHRISTMAS CAROL Skip Ewing - 1995 I was playing Santa Clause downtown on Christmas Eve When a little girl of three or four climbed up on to my knee I could tell she had a Christmas wish behind those eyes of blue So I asked her what's your name and what can Santa give to you She said my name is Christmas Carol, I was born on Christmas day I don't know who my Daddy is and Mommy's gone away All I want for Christmas is someone to take me home Does anybody want a Christmas Carol of their own Well all that I could say was Santa would do the best he could Then I sat her down and told her, now remember to be good She said I will, then walked away, turned and waved goodbye And I'm glad she wasn't close enough to see old Santa cry She said my name is Christmas Carol, I was born on Christmas day I don't know who my Daddy is and Mommy's gone away All I want for Christmas is someone to take me home Does anybody want a Christmas Carol of their own Early Christmas morning I got up and dialed the phone And made a few arrangements with the County Children's Home And they told me it would be all right to pick her up today Now my little Christmas Carol won't ever have to say My name is Christmas Carol, I was born on Christmas day I don't know who my Daddy is and Mommy's gone away All I want for Christmas is someone to take me home Does anybody want a Christmas Carol of their own Well Merry Christmas Carol I love you, welcome home (Contributed by boB Cartlidge & Mel - August 2004)
