The Meaning of Christmas Day

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
