Christmas

  • Did you ever see the faces of the children
    They get so excited
    Waking up on Christmas morning
    Hours before the winter sun's ignited
    They believe in dreams and all they mean
    Including heaven's generosity
    Peeping round the door
    To see what parcels are for free
    In curiosity

    And Tommy doesn't know what day it is
    He doesn't know who Jesus was
    Or what praying is
    How can he be saved
    From the eternal grave?

    Surrounded by his friends
    He sits so silently
    And unaware of anything
    Playing poxy pinball,
    Picks his nose and smiles and
    Pokes his tongue at everything
    I believe in love
    But how can men who've never seen
    Light be enlightened
    Only if he's cured
    Will his spirits future level ever heighten

    And Tommy doesn't know what day it is
    He doesn't know who Jesus was
    Or what praying is
    How can he be saved
    From the eternal grave?

    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Can you hear me?
    How can he be saved?

    See me, feel me, touch me, heal me!
    See me, feel me, touch me, heal me!

    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Tommy, can you hear me?
    Can you, can you, can you hear me?
    How can he be saved?

    Did you ever see the faces of the children
    They get so excited
    Waking up on Christmas morning
    Hours before the winter sun's ignited
    They believe in dreams and all they mean
    Including heaven's generosity
    Peeping round the door
    To see what parcels are for free
    In curiosity

    And Tommy doesn't know what day it is
    He doesn't know who Jesus was
    Or what praying is
    How can he be saved
    From the eternal grave? Writer/s: PETER TOWNSHEND
