lyrics

Let's have an old fashioned Christmas
Like they had so long ago
The times may have changed
But the spirit remains
Something you never outgrow

Let's bring back those old traditions
Our grandparents and their parents made
It's never obsolete
To sing carols in the street
And walk in the Christmas parade

I remember a time as a child
When Christmas was something divine
Well it seems like the meaning is changing so fast
It's up to us to bring back the past

It's not about shopping on credit
And spending more than you afford
Give from the heart
'cause that's where it starts
You can't find that love in a store

Let's keep our Christmastime simple
Without all the holiday stress
Children at play
Cookies on a tray
Are things that make holidays best

I remember a time
When we told each other stories
By the warmth of the fire
Of a family together on a cold Christmas eve
We can keep that alive if we only believe

Let's have an old fashioned Christmas
Just like they did it before
It worked way back then
We can do it again
And bring back tradition once more
