Chistmas When I Was Big As You - Australian Christmas Carol

Christmas, Christmas, When I was big as you
Meant Christmas trees, christmas trees
And lots of things to do
Dear Santa letters sayin we’ve been good, we’ve told no lies
And this year I’d like a pony, like the one old Smoky rides

Christmas, Christmas, When I was big as you
Meant sing alongs, sing alongs
Where noone sang in tune
Come Christmas Eve we’d pin our stockings to the wall
And lay in bed for hours thinking that a chimney seems so small
Me an your grandad took the axe to find a tree
While your gran stayed home and wrapped up things we weren’t to see
Thats what Christmas was when I was big as you

Christmas, Christmas, When I was big as you
Meant Christmas Day, Christmas Day
And parcels wrapped in Blue
Socks for my dear old dad, and an apron for dear mum
And though we never had much money,
Christmas was always fun

Christmas, Christmas, When I was big as you
Meant Storytime, Storytime
And aunts and uncles too
They’d come to visit us for lunch on Christmas Day
And answer all my Christmas questions like I am with you today
Me an your grandad took the axe to find a tree
While your gran stayed home and wrapped up things we weren’t to see
Thats what Christmas was when I was big as you
Thats what Christmas was when I was big as you
