OLD SCHOOL CHRISTMAS (Daniel Wilson, 2016)

Snow is falling in the shoebox in my mind
These faded pictures always leave me smilin'
Dog-eared Polaroids bring memories to life
Ghosts stare back from sepia, moments locked in time

I want that old school Christmas
The way things used to be
Grandma's warm plum pudding
To sit on Santa's knee
A rotary-dial telephone, a black and white TV
The sound of Daddy's laughter while he's cuttin' down the tree

There's a table set for twenty and the glow of candlelight
I hear the little drummer boy drifting through the night
Beyond the roaring fire and fixin's on the stove
Is a little piece of yesterday that only my heart knows

I want that old school Christmas
The way things used to be
Grandma's warm plum pudding
To sit on Santa's knee
A rotary-dial telephone, a black and white TV
The sound of Daddy's laughter while he's cuttin' down the tree

There's something to be said for that simple life we led
I'll take your pen and paper, you can have my Internet
And on those cold winter nights, when I'm curled up by the fire,
I’ll remember...

That old school Christmas
The way things used to be
Grandma's warm plum pudding
To sit on Santa's knee
A rotary-dial telephone, a black and white TV
The sound of Daddy's laughter while he's cuttin' down the tree

I want that old school Christmas
The way things used to be
Grandma's warm plum pudding
To sit on Santa's knee
A rotary-dial telephone, a black and white TV
The sound of Daddy's laughter while he's cuttin' down the tree
