The Statler Brothers Something You Can't Buy Lyrics

Last updated: 01/12/2006 10:00:00 AM

The greatest Christmas present
Is something you can’t buy

When World War 2 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 couldn’t buy
The greatest christmas present
Is something you can’t buy

I’ve talked to Pa this evening
For an hour on the phone
He said don’t spend a lot on presents (now son don’t you spend a lot on presents)
We just want you to come on home (you know all me and Momma want is you all to come on home)

But we’ll buy Momma a new dress
And Daddy another tie
And we’ll spend lots of time together
And that’s something you can’t buy
The greatest Christmas present
Is something you can’t buy

Some day I know it’s coming
When all of us won’t be
Together there for Christmas (I hate to face it but we won’t always be together for christmas)
You know Daddy’s seventy-three (it seems hard to believe but your daddy will turn seventy-three)

And to pay back all he gave me
I can’t but I will try
I’ll pass along to my kids
Something they can’t buy
The greatest Christmas present
Is something you can’t buy
