Story

As special as the Holiday season can be, don't we all occasionally wish that we could go back and live it once again as a child? Was there any more magical, exciting time of year, with the anticipation of Santa's visit... getting together with your cousins... the pile of presents under the tree... the sights, sounds and smells of the Christmas season as processed and experienced by a still-innocent mind and un-jaded heart? This richly-versed and lushly-produced carol brings back memories of a simpler time, when you felt safe and warm and the world was a place of wonder. 

Lyrics

Writing with your finger on the frosted window pane
The spicy scent of pine trees and the taste of candy canes
The mounting pile of presents underneath the Christmas tree
Oh Santa if you’re listening won’t you grant this wish for me

In this season so divine more than any other time
I want to be a kid again at Christmas
Peace on earth goodwill to men but make me 8 years old again
I want to be a kid again this Christmas

At Grandma’s with my cousins folks are in from out of town
Cookies fudge and eggnog peanut brittle by the pound
No school ‘til after New Years and the snow is piling up
And Mom is in the kitchen brewing cocoa for our cups

In this season so divine more than any other time
I want to be a kid again this Christmas
Peace on earth goodwill to men but make me 8 years old again
I want to be a kid again this Christmas

Driving up and down the streets to see the Christmas lights
Standing side by side in church and singing Silent Night
The story of the shepherds and the star and Wise Men three
Oh baby in the manger fill this heart with childlike glee

In this season so divine more than any other time
I want to be a kid again this Christmas
Peace on earth goodwill to men but make me 8 years old again
I want to be a kid again this Christmas
