Christmas Carol

Like a fixture down on Main Street, she stood there all year long
With a tin cup and a tambourine, singing Christmas songs
Folks thought she was crazy, but they loved to hear her sing
Drop some money in her cup, and she'd shake that tambourine

CHORUS:
And they called her Christmas Carol
there's not a Christmas song she couldn't sing
I remember Christmas Carol
With her snow-white hair and her beat-up tambourine

She wore that same old ragged coat, all the year around
Lived all alone in a little shack, just outside of town
She'd stand there singing Jingle Bells, in the heat of the summertime
Yes, everyday was Christmas, in Carol Johnson's mind

(Chorus)

But I can still remember, that twinkle in her eye
Cause Carol kept a secret, from the people passin' by
That secret was a mystery, they'd talked about so long
How each Christmas Eve those gifts showed up, outside the Children's Home

That was 40 years ago, or 50 I believe
But still those toys keep showin' up, each year on Christmas Eve
I wonder if we'll ever know, just who took up the cause
Is it still Christmas Carol, or is it Santa Claus

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
