Beside The Christmas Tree (Remastered)

from Ragged Christmas Crackers by The Ragged Flags



Dead of night in a quiet house
And not a creature stirs
Wait for the footfall up on the roof
A creak upon the stairs

Then suddenly all the kids awake
To see what Santa brings
Enough noise to make the whole house shake
As Christmas Day begins

So come on down with me
And sit beside the Christmas tree
While their little faces glow so happily
’Cause you and I we know
The past is young but the future’s old
So unwrap your present now with family

Now there’s paper all around the house
And strewn across the floor
Find the sherry while the children shout
Think we can take one more

So come on down with me
And sit beside the Christmas tree
While we hold each other close so happily
’Cause you and I we know
One day you’re young and the next you’re old
So unwrap your presents now with family

This is why we work all year
Why we suffer life’s indignities
All to see those beaming faces
Sat beside the Christmas tree
