"Christmas Must Be Tonight" as written by and Robbie Robertson....
Going down to Bethlehem
To see a little son of man
Lying away in the manger
Praise the prince of peace
Wheels start turning
Fires start burning
Shine a light on the wise men
Journeying from the east

How could a little baby boy
Be bringing down so much joy

Son of a carpenter
Mary carried the light
It must be Christmas
Must be tonight

That's all right

See the shepherds on a hillside
Looking up at the sky
On a cold winter night
They hear the angels sing
In a dream l heard a voice
Said, "Fear not, come rejoice It's the end of the beginning
Praise the new born king"

And just a little baby boy
He's bringing us so much joy

(Son of a carpenter)
Ooh, son of a carpenter
Mary carried the light
Oh, and it must be Christmas
Must be tonight

Son of a carpenter, oh

(Mary carried the light)
Mary carried the light
It must be Christmas
Must be tonight
Oh, and it's all right
Say

And it came to pass
The child was born at last
Happened right before
The star that shines on high

How could a little baby boy
Be bringing down so much joy

Son of a carpenter
Mary carried the light
It must be Christmas
Must be tonight

Son of a carpenter
Mary carried the light
It must be Christmas
Must be tonight

Must be tonight (It must be tonight)
It must be tonight (It must be tonight)
Christmas must be tonight
(It must be tonight)
The son of a carpenter (It must be tonight)
Mary carried the light (It must be tonight)
All right (It must be tonight)
And it's all right
(Mary carried the holy light)
Here we go
