Moira Cameron Christmas songs (83* d) Lyr Add: CHRISTMAS COMES BUT ONCE A YEAR^^ 06 Nov 97


Wolfgang, are you referring to the song by Enoch Kent to the tune of Mary's Boy Chile?



Christmas Comes But Once A Year by Enoch Kent

Christmas comes but once a year, so the holy bible says
And man must stash his cash all year because of Christmas Day.
All the stores were gaily garnished; tinsel and imitation snow.
And we look forward to Christmas Day, and we hope we have enough dough.

Some people say it's all because of a boy called Jesus Christ,
And not for making excess cash; those people are not very nice.
Ring the cash up, sing the praises, the Saviour born to men;
He saved us all from bankruptcy; may he soon come round again.

Now Nina & Frederik & Gracie Fields are getting in the act,
For a Christmas song sells like a bomb, and that's a bloody fact.
Mary's Boy Chile, Little Donkey, Santa, kisses, mum-
As long as you play on the theme, you'll make a goodly sum.

So merry Christmas everyone, although the greeting's stale.
If you didn't get the gift you wanted, then you'll get it in our January sale.
Hallelujah, line the pavements, cram the cash-desk with your pay.
Thank God for Christianity, and roll on Christmas Day!
