I Remember Christmas
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Names and moments and faces and words
Names and moments and faces and words
Names and moments and faces and words
The things of my past now a little bit blurred

Ya’ see sometimes my mind gets hung up in the fluff
Yeah it’s mostly superfluous useless stuff
But occasionally something of note gets lost
My neurons and synapse and wires get crossed
And it drives me a little bit crazy
When it’s all a little bit hazy
Then is gone in the blink of an eye

Now the ol’ mem’ry’s usua’ly pretty good I trust
Most of the time
It works just fine
But some of the time
Well, it just turns to dust

But I remember Christmas
And I remember tinsel
And I remember stockings hung with care
I remember children and bells
And angels with wings and ribbons of silk
And chimneys and cookies and milk

I remember mistletoe
And men of snow
And reindeer prancing on tiptoe
French toast a’toasting and chestnuts a’roasting,
And silent night
Oh what a night!

Yes I remember Christmas
And I remember angels
And I remember light in Bethlehem
I remember Mary and Joseph
And that little babe that lay in the hay
And the shepherds and the wise men three

And I know that God was there
And hope was there
And the music came down from the heavens
And the star above sang
Of the promise of peace
In a silent night
And all was so bright

Well ya’ know I must have forgotten more than I know
But at least I know what I’ve not forgotten
The insignificant lost long ago
The mostly unnecessary lost long ago

But I remember Christmas
I remember tinsel
And I remember stockings hung with care
I remember children and bells
And angels with wings and ribbons of silk
And chimneys and cookies and milk
I remember mistletoe and men of snow

Yes I remember Christmas
I remember Christmas
Yes I remember Christmas
