Rosemary Clooney — C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S lyrics

When I was but a youngster, Christmas meant one thing
That I'd be getting lots of toys that day
I learned a whole lot different when mother sat me down
And taught me to spell Christmas this way
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/rosemary-clooney-c-h-r-i-s-t-m-a-s-lyrics.html ]
C is for the Christ child born upon this day
H for herald angels in the night
R means our redeemer
I means Israel
S is for the star that shone so bright
T is for three wise men, they who traveled far
M is for the manger where He lay
A is for all He stands for
S means Shepard's came

And that's why there's a Christmas day

T is for three wise men, they who traveled far
M is for the manger where He lay
A is for all He stands for
S means Shepard's came
And that's why there's a Christmas day
And that's why there's a Christmas day
