    Santa, My Dad and Me

    Christmas Eve 1975
    Seen through a child’s eyes
    Tucked in bed, but I couldn’t fall asleep
    Hoping Santa would stop by for me

    And just like the year before,
    I heard the sleigh bells and a knock on our door
    Followed by a great big, Ho Ho Ho
    I jumped up and my mom let Santa in, but where did my dad go?

    Santa and my dad
    Every single time
    Dad would disappear
    When Santa arrived
    Santa and my dad

    How I wanted them to meet
    We had so much in common
    Santa, my dad and me

    We each had twinkling blue eyes
    Bluer than a cloudless sky
    When we smiled our rosy cheeks would glow
    There was more, if you wanted to know

    We each had a teasing laugh
    Silly things could trigger that
    It was like, I’d known Santa all my life
    I felt so loved when he hugged me goodbye

    Santa and my dad
    Every single time
    Dad would disappear
    When Santa arrived
    Santa and my dad
    How I wanted them to meet
    We had so much in common
    Santa, my dad and me

    They say with age, comes wisdom
    
I know firsthand, that’s the truth
    Oh how I long for the mystery
    When I didn’t know, who was who

    Santa and my dad
    Every single time
    And, yes, I still believe in
    The magic of the season
    And love beyond all reason
    Santa, my dad and me
    Santa, my dad and me
