As I walked to a neighbors house one Christmas day,
A chill came over me, as I heard a small voice begin to pray,
Dear God, way up in Heaven, I'm just a child of only three,
And I don't know much about praying,
So, I'm hopin you'll please hear me,
You know, my Daddy's gone this Christmas,
And I feel it's ,on account of me,
So, if you would Dear God,
Make sure my daddy has a Christmas tree.
You know, my daddy didn't have the money
To shop and go downtown,
And the only reason he stole those toys,
Was because he didn't want to let me down.
And prison is a place for those who are really bad,
And Dear God, you know my daddy's good,
And all that me and mommy had.
So, if you would Dear God, I'm asking you,
If you only will, to somehow, in that dark place,
Let a little Christmas light shine on him from Heaven above,
And let him know that, mom and me,
Have the best gift of all, because he gave his love.
So, Dear God, please do a favor for me,
Please make sure my daddy has a Christmas tree,
Thank you God----Amen.
