STATLER BROTHERS


Something You Can't Buy Lyrics

The greatest Christmas present
Is something you can?t buy

When World War II was over
We trimmed the tree alone
But we saved the star for daddy
'Cause daddy was coming home

We bought momma a new dress
We bought daddy a tie
But he brought us each something
That money couldn?t buy

The greatest Christmas present
Is something you can?t buy

I?ve talked to pa this evening
For an hour on the phone
He said, "Don?t spend a lot on presents
(He said, "Son, now don?t you all spend a lot of money on presents")
We just want you all at home"
("You know all momma and I want is just to have you all here at home")

But we?ll buy momma a new dress
And daddy another tie
And we?ll spend lots of time together
And that?s something you can?t buy

The greatest Christmas present
Is something you can?t buy

Some day, and I know it?s coming
When all of us won?t be
Together there for Christmas
(I hate to face it but I know we won?t always be together at Christmas)
You know, daddy?s seventy-three
(Doesn't seem possible but guess your daddy will turn seventy-three)

And to pay back all he gave me
I can?t but I will try
I?ll pass along to my kids
Something they can?t buy

The greatest Christmas present
Is something you can?t buy
