Christmas Shoes by New Song


 It was almost Christmas time, there I stood in another line

Tryin' to buy that last gift or two, not really in the Christmas mood

Standing right in front of me was a little boy waiting anxiously

Pacing 'round like little boys do

And in his hands he held a pair of shoes



His clothes were worn and old, he was dirty from head to toe

And when it came his time to pay

I couldn't believe what I heard him say



Chorus:

Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please

It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size

Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time

You see she's been sick for quite a while

And I know these shoes would make her smile

And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight



He counted pennies for what seemed like years

Then the cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here"

He searched his pockets frantically

Then he turned and he looked at me

He said Mama made Christmas good at our house

Though most years she just did without

Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,

Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes



So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out

I'll never forget the look on his face when he said

Mama's gonna look so great



Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please

It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size

Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time

You see she's been sick for quite a while

And I know these shoes would make her smile

And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight



Bridge:

I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love

As he thanked me and ran out

I knew that God had sent that little boy

To remind me just what Christmas is all about



 


Chorus:

Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please

It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size

Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time

You see she's been sick for quite a while

And I know these shoes would make her smile

And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight



He counted pennies for what seemed like years

Then the cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here"

He searched his pockets frantically

Then he turned and he looked at me

He said Mama made Christmas good at our house

Though most years she just did without

Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,

Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes



So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out

I'll never forget the look on his face when he said

Mama's gonna look so great



Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please

It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size

Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time

You see she's been sick for quite a while

And I know these shoes would make her smile

And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight


This is such  a beautiful song! I love it. When I first heard this song I was in the car coming home from some where and heard it, as this was playing in the car I started to cry :( This song reminded me so much of my great grandma who has passed away and who I miss so MUCH. "He said Mama made Christmas good at our house.Though most years she just did without tell me Sir, what am I going to do, somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes" This is from the song and when they are talking about how mama made Christmas good at our house, this reminds me to much of my grandma because I loved my Grandma so very much. My Grandma kinda made Christmas good at my house because she would allways give us the best presents ever and she would allways make the best Christmas cookies for us. :)


This whole song is awsome to me, when I heard it for the first time in the car I loved it and now when ever I hear it playing on the radio in the car I allways think of my grandma. In the song when the little boy wants to buy his mom these red shoes I think of myself because before my grandma passed she asked my mom & other grandma if they would do something for me and my sister. She wanted our birthstones put into a ring for us to have. On the inside of this ring it says "love Richie September 25,2005" (Richie is what I used to call my grandma) At the time I got this ring it was too big for me to wear so my dad put a chain on it and said wear it as a neacklace until you can wear it for a ring. So brining this back to the little boy who wanted to buy the red shoes for his mom my grandma wanted something for us to remember her by. That was the awsomest Chritsmas present she could ever give me!
