On Christmas Eve,  I went for a walk along a busy street
Never expecting the sight I'd see  or the man I'd meet

He was dressed up in a pinstripe suit,  a stylish hat and tie
There was an old black book  he waved in his hand
At the cars that were passing by,  and he said,


There'd never be a Rudolph  with his nose so bright
And Santa wouldn't fly  from the North Pole
on a 'round the world' flight

There wouldn't be pretty presents  'neath the tree with all the lights,
If The Little Baby Jesus Hadn't Been Born  in Bethlehem tonight



He was standing on the corner  as the cars stopped for the light
He shouted out the name of Jesus,  Ooh wee, what a sight

They all got scared  and rolled up their windows  and tried to hide from view
He shouted the name of Jesus again an said, "Hey, I'm talkin' to you!"


There wouldn't be a Christmas star  and no wise men too
And Mary and Joseph be hangin' around,  just wond'rin what to do

There wouldn't be twelve apostles  and Lazarus would lose his life,
If The Little Baby Jesus Hadn't Been Born in Bethlehem tonight

( Back to "There,d never be a Rudolph" and finish with the chorus. )
