The Meaning of Christmas Day

The Meaning of Christmas Day

By Robert Boog

Click here to listen to this song & or buy it!

It rained hard the night before Christmas

But I had to buy a gift or two

Yet for some unspoken reason

I turned left on the avenue.

 

My van moved slow through pouring rain

when I saw someone falling down

She held a bundled baby and

Her husband helped her off the ground

 

I pulled off to the side and yelled out

“Do you need a ride?”

Not sure if they spoke English

But they quickly jumped inside.

 

When I asked them “Where ya headed to?”

the man he said “Jose”

Called his wife Maria

And said that Sixth Street would be okay.

 

Well, they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Soon I’ll be opening presents

cuz that’s the meaning of Christmas Day

 

 

When we got to the destination

I found everything pitch dark

“We stay in a back garage ” he said

So I put my van in park.

 

“Gracias for the ride amigo,

Tu eres amable”

Then Maria bundled up their babe

And I watched them step away

 

Well, they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Soon I’ll be home with my family

That’s the meaning of Christmas Day

 

 

The next day I drove to Sixth street

Out of pure curiosity

The day was warm and sunny

So I parked beside a tree

 

That’s when I discovered to my surprise

There was no garage at back.

Just a vacant lot with a chain-link fence

And I wondered where they’d went

 

If there’s a message to this song it’s

treat everyone the same – try to

Do something nice for others that could

Be you walking in the rain

 

Well they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Today I’ll celebrate my savior’s birth

that’s the meaning of Christmas Day

Yeah, the meaning of Christmas Day

Deeply

Robert Boog

to listen to this song, click here.

We took a drive down the coast
The cows gave us sideways looks
Entered my town you saw a man
who sat on a bench and dozed
Watched people on bicycles
women and men young and old
Most would wave or smile and then say
“Hello,” or “have a good day.”
Your intimacy feels like home oh-oh-ome
Your intimacy completes my soul
I deeply believe you know oh, oh, oh
I ‘m deeply feel-ing close
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh
The deep, green leaves turn gold
Like us one day we’ll grow old-
With you by my side we’ll smile
And laugh till we’re ninety five
You’re lovely and passionate
And there are no accidents
Gave me your heart -so go for it—
I’m yours, I’m yours, I’m yours
Your intimacy feels like home oh-oh-ome
Your intimacy completes my soul
I deeply believe you know oh, oh, oh
I ‘m deeply feel-ing close
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh
You are a lock and I am your key
I am a sailor you are the sea
I wanted you you wanted me
The fairy tale goes, they lived happily
Let’s take a stroll in the sun
We’ll feed the ducks like we’re young
I’m in the mood to tell the truth
without a word I love you,
My intimacy feels like home- oh-oh-ome
My intimacy completes your soul
You deeply believe I know
You’re deeply feeling close
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Deeply.Deeply.Deeply feeling you close.
Deeply.Deeply.Deeply feeling me close.
Your intimacy, just you and me, feels like home.
My intimacy just you and me, completes your soul
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Oh, oh, oh.oh

Gift of Love

Gift of Love
sung by Phydra

Jump up –today’s my birthday
And I’m now six years old
I’m a little drunk on freedom
don’t always do as I am told.
Head out— and my mom is smiling
And now I’m wondering?
There’s popcorn on the cherry trees
And a little bird chirps at me
He’s green with yellow feathers
And likes to tickle my neck.
I feed him and I water him
Best birthday present yet!
Gift of love
It’s a gift from above
And as mommy watches me
tears slide from her smiling eyes and
I begin to sing

He’s a gift of love – a gift from above
A gift of love – a gift from my mom
Run out —cuz today’s my birthday
my sister envies me
Put my birdy on her shoulder
And then she laughs out suddenly
Show off— today’s my birthday
And everywhere I go
Little birdy guards my shoulder
cuz he wants everyone to know
He’s a gift of love
A gift from above
And as my mommy watches me
Tears slide from her smiling eyes and
I begin to sing
He’s a gift of love – a gift from above
A gift of love – a gift from my mom
Wake up — today’s my birthday
And I’m twenty-six years old
Buy coffee at the shopping mall
And I shiver cuz I’m cold – oh oh
Sun’s out— cuz today is my birthday
See a little boy and his mom
He smiles at me as he passes by
And I watch them move along
He’s gotta green and yellow sweater
And he laughs out of control
She holds his little hand in hers
They love each other so-oh
He’s a gift of love
a gift from above
And as his mommy watches me
Tears slide from her smiling eyes and
I begin to sing
He’s a gift of love – a gift from above
A gift of love – a gift from above
A gift of love – a gift from his mom
A gift of love – it’s a gift of love.

Not Yet Christmas

Not Yet Xmas
Robert Boog

You can listen to the song here, love it and buy it!
maybe it’s the chilly weather
Seeing folks … together.
Last minute gifts, disappointments
Nuff food to feed a small city.
Santas , Dads, Moms with Kids
Jesus ,Mary and Joseph.
Three wise men… bringing gifts…
people-watching excitement.
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it, it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you, and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it, yeah,
Baby, I’m not over it, yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.
Snow came late again this year
Draped the yard in white and it’s weird
Heard a song by Ziggy Stardust
With Bing Crosby –your favorite
remember that time in Hawaii? kept
Saying Mele Kalikimaki
Then we went to the Christmas party
And we missed a plane to Maui.
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it, it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it, yeah.
Baby, I’m not over it, yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.
BRIDGE: [ I miss your lousy parking
I miss your stupid joking
And I wish I could bring you back cuz
I think I’m kinda jealous]
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it,it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s, nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it,
Baby, I’m not over it, Yet.
Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.Not yet.

The Dream

The Dream

Robert Boog

CLICK THIS LINK TO LISTEN – OR PURCHASE

This year held so many things

But I learned to let them go.

It’s not someone or something…

but the hardest thing I know.

 

I’m not blaming anyone but

I hope now for what I want.

Maybe I will never get it –

but in others I’ll see the best.

 

Chorus:       I’m not lonely but I do live alone

I’m satisfied but I know I want more

Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to

Play these games no more. No more.

 

So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to hear blunt honesty.

And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to have “the dream”.

 

I know I may not be perfect,

But I know I am unique.

I’m no cookie- cutter image

of what someone else should be.

 

I know I’m certainly flawed…

but I’m fearful of being deceived.

I know I’m certainly flawed…

but this is… ME.

 

 

I’m not lonely but I do live alone

I’m satisfied but I know I want more

Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to

Play these games no more. No more!

So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to hear blunt honesty.

And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to have “the dream” – ee-eem.

 

BRIDGE: Wanna live and love and laugh

Have a family… You and me,

two kids… and in love.. it’s my Fantasy.

It’s my Fantasy….

 

You will set my heart on fire

Laugh and tell me silly things.

You’ll hold my hand when it’s tough

Smile at me –n- say I’m loved.

 

I’m not lonely but I do live alone

I’m satisfied but I know I want more.

Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to

Play these games no more. No more!

 

So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to hear blunt honesty.

And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to have “the dream”.

Ruby Ring

My sister had a little ruby ring that she lost while on a vacation to Los Angeles   so I thought I’d write a song about it. If you would like to hear it, click here!

santa clarita sign

It is sung by Ruthlee. Below are the lyrics:

Ruby Ring

By Robert Boog

When I was twelve I had a ruby ring

I used to think it was such a precious thing

But one summer day when driving to LA

I took it off when I went to wash my hands

Then three days later – I realized that it was gone

I cried and I cried and I cried the whole night long

Mom shook her head but, Dad was understanding.

He knew I missed that thing. My little ruby ring.

My little ruby ring.

And sometimes when I look at you,

I see your smiling eyes gazing back at me

Waiting there you stand and inside I think

You’re so loving like I loved my ruby ring

My little ruby ring.

 

Two weeks later, Dad drove five hundred miles

I checked the bathrooms- even the floor tiles

Dad finally said “Hon – I’m sorry it’s just gone.

Somebody’s found it –they might have even pawned it.”

 

And sometimes when I look at you,

I see your smiling eyes gazing back at me

Waiting there you stand -inside I think

I love you more than, my little ruby ring…

My little ruby ring.. My little ruby ring

 

You know how cute I think you are…

You’re my soul mate –my rock star

And you love me more and more each day

So I just want to share my thanks!

 

On the way back – dad stopped to buy some gas

And filled the truck so –I thought I’d try my luck

Inside the washroom – red sparkle caught my eyes,

Like It’d wait for me –when others had passed by

 

And sometimes when I look at you,

I see your smiling eyes gazing back at me

Waiting there you stand and inside I think

You’re so loving like I found my ruby ring

My little ruby ring.. My little ruby ring

 

I found true love like — my little ruby ring

You love me more than –I loved my little, ruby ring
