The Only Kid Here In The Park …At Xmas

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 there are plenty of new bikes and trainers
and things that light up in the dark
but on Christmas Day at about 8am
I’m the only kid here in the park

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 yes I’m all on my own in my best footie boots
and an old pair of jeans and sweater
my mates are all probably trying new clothes
so I tell you it don’t get much better

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I remember that morning as if it were now
with that brilliant new ball in my hand
it was shiny and perfect and never been kicked
and it felt like the best in the land

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 there are plenty of things you could probably do
than be up and around with the lark
but on Christmas Day at about 8am
I’m the only kid here in the park

In Bath with the grand-children opening presents..being Christmassy..thinking about space suits ,oranges and being a kid in the 50s and getting a new leather ball…that i didn’t want to get dirty!
Wishing you all a multi-cultural politically correct Joyeux Noel and stuff like that..keep on
