The greatest Christmas present
Is something you cant buy

When World War II was over
We trimmed the tree alone
But we saved the star for daddy
'Cause daddy was coming home

We bought momma a new dress
We bought daddy a tie
But he brought us each something
That money couldnt buy

The greatest Christmas present
Is something you cant buy

Ive talked to pa this evening
For an hour on the phone
He said, "Dont spend a lot on presents
(He said, "Son, now dont you all spend a lot of money on presents")
We just want you all at home"
("You know all momma and I want is just to have you all here at home")

But well buy momma a new dress
And daddy another tie
And well spend lots of time together
And thats something you cant buy

The greatest Christmas present
Is something you cant buy

Some day, and I know its coming
When all of us wont be
Together there for Christmas
(I hate to face it but I know we wont always be together at Christmas)
You know, daddys seventy-three
(Doesn't seem possible but guess your daddy will turn seventy-three)

And to pay back all he gave me
I cant but I will try
Ill pass along to my kids
Something they cant buy

The greatest Christmas present
Is something you cant buy
