Pick The Christmas Tree

Pick The  Christmas Tree

Intro:
Christmas gifts to be
Placed beneath the tree
I have received a long list
Rushing to get everyone’s request
I have to make  a quick decision
As I shop this morning in a hurry
It’s a week before Christmas Eve
Like the movie
“A Miracle on 34 Street ”
A miracle is what I  need
Because first ,  I must  still
Pick the Christmas  tree

Verse 1
It’s fast and easy
An artificial  tree
Out of the box fully trimmed
The  ornaments  include
Silver bells and red bows
perfect  little angels
with their halo
There are  some trees that are white
Look as if they are covered
with a light  night’s
Fresh fallen snow

Chorus :
Christmas gifts to be
Placed beneath the tree
I have received a long list
Rushing to get everyone’s request
I have to make  a quick decision
As I shop  this morning in a hurry
It’s a week before Christmas Eve
Like in the movie
” A Miracle on 34 Street”
A miracle is what I  need
Because  first  I must  still
Pick the  Christmas tree

Verse 2:
I remember the search
Each year  for the perfect
Evergreen Douglas fir tree
And the challenge  to tie it
Secure on the car roof
Check the ropes making sure
That they aren’t loose
Excited about trimming the tree
Christmas ornaments
That are made personally
by  family

Chorus :
Christmas gifts to be
Placed beneath the tree
I have received a long list
Rushing to get everyone’s request
I have to make  a quick decision
As I shop  this morning in a hurry
It’s a week before Christmas Eve
Like in the movie
A Miracle on 34 street
A miracle is what I  need
Because  first I  must  still
Pick the Christmas  tree

Bridge :
I’ve loved our tradition
Picking our evergreen
Douglas fir tree
But would it be
so terrible
Buying this year’s tree
Already assembled ?
Looking perfectly

Chorus :
Christmas gifts to be
Placed beneath the tree
I have received a long list
Rushing to get everyone’s request
I have to make  a quick decision
As I shop  this morning in a hurry
It’s a week before Christmas Eve
Like in the movie
A Miracle on 34 street
A miracle is what I  need
Because  first I  must  still
Pick the Christmas  tree
