"Calling It Christmas" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
On a hill long ago
On a cold winter's night
In a land far away
Three kings saw a light
And from heaven it shone
Like God's
God's own crown
And it guided three kings
Into Bethlehem town

Oh they came bearing gifts
And so said each one
Let's call this day Christmas
From this
Moment on
We'll be calling it Christmas
In, in honour of him
The child in the manger
Our saviour and king

We've been calling it Christmas
Keeping the faith
Knowing the reason
We're, we're saving the day

We've been calling it Christmas
Down through the years
(Down through the years, baby)
Spreading joy to the world
When Christmas is here
(Is here)

Oh a simple belief
Was the start of it all
A small child asleep
On a bed made of straw

At the back of an inn
Where, where shepherds and kings
First felt the joy that
This moment would bring

We've been calling it Christmas
Keeping the faith
Knowing the reason
We're, we're saving the day

We've been calling it Christmas
Down through the years
(Down through the years, baby)
Spreading joy to the world
When Christmas is here
(Is here)

We've been calling it Christmas
Down through the years
(Down through, down through)
Spreading joy to the world
When Christmas is here
(Is here)

Spreading joy to the world
When Christmas is here
Spreading joy to the world
When Christmas, ooh
Is here
(Is here)
