The Christmas Shoes lyrics 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 Repeat Chorus Its total rubbish and there is an INSANELY cheesy video to go with it.

Had never heard that Christmas Shoes song before, just clicked into it on YouTube there - my God the cheese!!! It's terrible, it's actually so bad it's like it's a parody :eek Also, right, pendantic point - but "If Mama meets Jesus tonight"she won't be wearing the flippin shoes, Christians don't believe our bodies go anywhere after we die - UNLESS it's the End Of Days that particular Christmas Eve, and the Lord has come to judge the living and the dead, and the 4 Horsemen are running amok... and then let's face it Kid, Mama's gonna have a bigger problem than her shoes. Just sayin'.

I loved it last year too & was just thinking about this channel yesterday. Bring on Christmas I say - I wish it would just kick off - none of the radio stations are playing any festive songs yet!!! Come On!! We need cheering up... granted I will be all Christmassed out by the time it actually comes along. I did notice with the station last year that their collection was fairly limited!
