Once upon a time in a far off land
Wise men saw a sign
And set out 'cross the sand
With songs appraised to sing

They traveled day and night
With precious gifts to bring
Guided by a light

They chased a brand new star
Ever towards the west
Over mountains far

And when it came to rest
They scarce believed their eyes
They'd come so many miles
This miracle they prized
Was nothing but a child

Nothing but a child
Could wash those tears away
Or guide a weary world
Into the light of day

And nothing but a child
Could help erase those lines
So once again
We all can be children for a while

Now all around the world
In every little town
Every day is heard
A precious little sound

And every mother kind
And every father proud
Looks down in awe to find
Another chance allowed

And nothing but a child
Could wash those tears away
Or guide a weary world
Into the light of day

And nothing but a child
Could help erase those lines
So once again
We all can be children for a while
