The Sound of Christmas

 

It’s the crackle of the fire

As the pinecones pop like corn

It’s Autry singing Rudolph

While the little ones sing along

It’s grandpa dressed like Santa

Laughing, Ho Ho Ho

That’s the sound of Christmas we all know

 

It’s the crinkle of wrapping paper

Followed by the oohs and aahs
Then it’s off to church to hear the choir

And all give thanks to God

It’s the silence of the morning

Tucked in blankets of fresh snow

That’s the sound of Christmas we all know

 

Chorus:

Daddy says grace at the table

Three generations say amen

Then it’s eat and drink and talk and laugh

With family and friends

“Oh little town of Bethlehem” on the radio

That’s the sound of Christmas we all know
