  • There's a streetlight that sits above the night
    And it shines its gray light on the midnight air
    And the houses twinkle on the block
    But there's one house that shines a special way out there

    It's Christmas in the city
    And the trees are lighted pretty
    But the prettiest Christmas tree of all
    They can see all the colors that we cannot
    And theirs is the most beautiful
    Christmas on the block

    Though they cannot see the light of day
    And the night is forever, the fact still remains
    In this world of confusion there is peace
    There is hope in despair sometimes, the beauty is a beast

    And they cannot see the lightning
    and they cannot see the thunder
    But they know what no one understands
    That beauty is a blessing, love is all we got
    And theirs is the most beautiful
    Christmas on the block

    In the darkest corner of the night
    Only dreams illuminate their eyes
    And they see all the colors that we cannot
    And theirs is the most beautiful
    Christmas on the block

    The cannot see the lightning
    And they cannot see the thunder
    But they know what no one understands
    That beauty is a blessing, love is all we got
    And theirs is the most beautiful
