lyrics

I'm coming round to the feeling
Sing like a heavenly child
Rafts of holy angels singing wild
God knows one of them is mine

The pageant play is always so depressing
The ending may seem cheery, may seem sweet
But nothing compares to the sadness
When they nail hot steel to his feet

Oh my little one, go and have your fun
I won't tell you, even though I should
You are lying to yourself, if you think you are safe
Forget the birth and lets skip to the faith

The shepherd's eyeing me with suspicion
The neighbours are all telling me I'm loud
This ain't no minor indiscretion
I'm practically sinning right to God

And I'm stripping every single, single mother
Wishing that they all will call me 'pa'
But Christ that's just your son, not the real one
It must be so much easier for them

**

So wake me when the baby takes his bow
And the Silent Night is definitely done
I want to hold him in my arms and say 'I love you'
Before he returns to his Ma
