It’s the Christmas play
It’s the Christmas play
Hope I don’t forget
What I’m supposed to say
Here we are at last - -
Standing on the stage
Singing in the Christmas play

Yesterday at practice
Things didn’t go that great
Shepherds were fighting with the sheep
And the wise men came in late
And angels wings got broken
Someone stepped on Joseph’s toes
And the kid who sings “Good will to men”
Went home with a bloody nose

Teacher says “It’s a miracle!”
She cried and then she laughed
Our one hour dress rehearsal
Took two hours and a half
The microphone works - - sometimes
The piano’s not in tune
Rumor is first grade's got lice
And the fourth grade's got the flu

The kindergartners will be cute
If they don’t trip on the stairs
As tangled antlers twist and turn
In restless reindeers hair
Santa called to say he’s late
He’s stuck in a traffic jam
But we’re glad you’re here, it’s another year
Singing in the Christmas play
