Spotlight on Christmas Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
(One two three four)
People love the working man
Who does the best that he can but
Don't forget all the horses and toys
Never could fix the poor little rich boys.
Verse 2
People say they love the maid who
Sweats and toils just like a slave but
Don't forget all the diamonds and pearls
Never could fix the poor little rich girls.
Verse 3
You could measure it in blood
You could measure it in mud
Let us say for these twelve days
Put the measurin' away
Cause it's Christmas
And a spotlight shining on Christmas
And a spotlight shining on us.
Verse 4
People love and people hate
People go and people wait but
Don't forget Jesus Mary and Joseph
Once were a family, poor but rich in hope, yeah
Don't forget Jesus Mary and Joseph
Running from the law King Herod hath imposeth
And they were each one quite odd
A mench, a virgin, and a god but
Don't forget that what kept them afloat
Floatin' through the desert doesn't take a boat
Don't forget that what kept them above
Is unconditional love and
Verse 5
You could measure it in blood
You could measure it in mud
Let us say for these twelve days
Put the measurin' away
Cause it's Christmas
And a spotlight shining on Christmas
And a spotlight shining on us.
And a spotlight shining on Christmas
And a spotlight shining on
Verse 6
People love the working man
Does the best that he can but
Don't forget all the horses and toys
Never could fix the poor little rich boys.
