Daughters And Sons L. Lieberman I woke up this morning and I put the coffee on A message from my publisher to say why he had called With Christmas round the bend, he said, they’re looking for a song Something to lift the spirit, just about three minutes long So I wrote a cheerful melody and put it in the mail With thoughts of money in the bank and triple-digit sales But my heart, it laid so heavy, in my gut, it felt so wrong With honesty this time around Here is my Christmas song Merry Christmas, daughters and sons One more reckless year’s come and gone In a war that rages on Merry Christmas, sweet child of mine When I tell you, open your eyes To a world of lullabyes Silver presents, sparkling with tinsel, ribbons green and gold Windows etched in snowflakes, icicles and they’ll be coming home Merry Christmas, daughters and sons It’s not Christmas till this is done And you’re back home, where you belong Merry Christmas, daughters and sons One more reckless year’s come and gone We’ll have Christmas when this is done This is my Christmas song…

Daughters And Sons
L. Lieberman
I woke up this morning and I put the coffee on
A message from my publisher to say why he had called
With Christmas round the bend, he said, they’re looking for a song
Something to lift the spirit, just about three minutes long
So I wrote a cheerful melody and put it in the mail
With thoughts of money in the bank and triple-digit sales
But my heart, it laid so heavy, in my gut, it felt so wrong
With honesty this time around
Here is my Christmas song

Merry Christmas, daughters and sons
One more reckless year’s come and gone
In a war that rages on

Merry Christmas, sweet child of mine
When I tell you, open your eyes
To a world of lullabyes

Silver presents, sparkling with tinsel, ribbons green and gold
Windows etched in snowflakes, icicles and they’ll be coming home

Merry Christmas, daughters and sons
It’s not Christmas till this is done
And you’re back home, where you belong

Merry Christmas, daughters and sons
One more reckless year’s come and gone
We’ll have Christmas when this is done
This is my Christmas song…
