For my sister

Every year at the Holidays there is a tradition between my sister and I. Who will be the first person to make the other person cry for Christmas. No, we don't poke each other in the eye. We play the worlds saddest Christmas song ever. (and it's not that damn Christmas Shoes song)

So, in an effort to catch her where she least expects it, here you go.

video
The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot sung by Nat King Cole written by Connor/Carr/Leach.

He's the little boy that Santa Claus forgot,
and goodness knows, he didn't want a lot.

He sent a note to Santa
for some soldiers and a drum,
it broke his little heart
when he found Santa hadn't come.

In the street he envies all those lucky boys,
then wanders home to last year's broken toys.
I'm so sorry for that laddie,
he hasn't got a daddy,
the little boy that Santa Claus forgot.

spoken:
You know, Christmas comes but once a year for every girl and boy,
the laughter and the joy they find in each brand new toy.
I'll tell you of a little boy that lives across the way...
this little fella's Christmas is just another day.
he's the little boy that Santa Claus forgot,
and goodness knows, he didn't want a lot.

In the street he envies all those lucky boys,
then wanders home to last year's broken toys.
I'm so sorry for that laddie,
he hasn't got a daddy,
the little boy that Santa Claus forgot.


Great, now I can't even read my own blog.

I love the pre-emptive strike! Nicely done...I bet she's crying already.

I know I am. Didn't even make it to the end of the lyrics. :(

I still think we should sing her our rendition of Away in a Manger. THAT would make anyone cry....
