Christmas Song - Dave Matthews

 

She was his girl; he was her boyfriend

 

She be his wife; take him as her husband

 

A surprise on the way, any day, any day

 

One healthy little giggling dribbling baby boy

 

The wise men came three made their way

 

To shower him with love

 

While he lay in the hay

Shower him with love love love

 

Love love love

 

Love love is all around

 

Not very much of his childhood was known

 

Kept his mother Mary worried

 

Always out on his own

 

He met another Mary for a reasonable fee, less than

Reputable as known to be

 

His heart was full of love love love

 

Love love love

 

Love love is all around

 

When Jesus Christ was nailed to the his tree

Said 'oh, Daddy-o I can see how it all soon will be

 

I came to shed a little light on this darkening scene

 

Instead I fear I spill the blood of my children all around'

 

The blood of our children all around

 

The blood of our children all around

 

So the story goes, so I'm told

The people he knew were

 

Less than golden hearted

 

Gamblers and robbers

 

Drinkers and jokers, all soul searchers

 

Like you and me

 

Rumors insisited he soon would be

 

For his deviations

 

Taken into custody by the authorities

 

Less informed than he.

 

Drinkers and jokers. all soul searchers

 

Searching for love love love

 

Love love love

 

Love love is all around

 

Preparations were made

For his celebration day

 

He said 'eat this bread and think of it as me

 

Drink this wine and dream it will be

 

The blood of our children all around

 

The blood of our children all around'

 

The blood of our children all around

 

Father up above, why in all this anger have you fill

Me up with love

 

Fill me love love love

 

Love love love

 

Love love

And the blood of our children all around
