Around the Christmas Tree ~ RCA Victor 45 EPA-496C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S 

When I was but a youngsterPerry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
Christmas meant one thing,
that I'd be getting lots of toys that day

I learned a whole lot different 
when Mother sat me down 
and taught me to spell 'Christmas' this way:
 
C - is for the Christ child, born upon this day is for the Christ child, born upon this day
H - for herald angels in the night for herald angels in the night
R - means our Redeemer means our Redeemer
I - means Israel means Israel
S - is for the star that shone so bright  is for the star that shone so bright 
T - is for three wise men, they who traveled far is for three wise men, they who traveled far 
M - is for the manger where He lay is for the manger where He lay
A - 's for all He stands for 's for all He stands for
S - means Shepard's came means Shepard's came
 
And that's why there's a Christmas day!
 
<instrumental break >
 
And that's why there's a Christmas day!
