Lyrics

Forget About Me
Bev Barnett & Greg Newlon


It?s getting colder; we knew it would
It?s almost Christmas in the neighborhood
Some poor kid wants something that he might not get
A new leather jacket or a TV set
And his mama says ?don?t worry, Santa won?t forget?

Two blocks from nowhere, in a house of doubt
Its even colder, ?cause the fire?s gone out
Some poor kid wants something that he might not get
A little something to eat before he goes to bed
And his mama says ?don?t worry, God won?t forget?

I?m gonna have a merry, merry Christmas
I?m gonna trim an eight foot Christmas tree
And I?m gonna pray for him that God remembers
And I?m telling Santa to forget about me

Another village, a world away
The bombs are dropping, the mines are laid
Some poor kid wants something that she might not get
Just to know if her daddy?s alive or dead
And a mama that still believes God won?t forget

I?m gonna have a merry, merry Christmas
I?m gonna trim an eight foot Christmas tree
And I?m gonna pray for them that God remembers
And I?m telling Santa to forget about me
