Where Santa lives
Author : Dave Barron

Subject

The melody of this carol is taken from a Caitriona O;Leary version of a medieval carol from Wexford: An Angel This Bright Midnight.

Description

My friends spoke in the schoolyard
When we went out to play;
The story that I then heard
Soon filled me with dismay.

I wrote a note to Santa
And asked Him to explain.
The answer came back quickly
And calmed my troubled brain.

CHORUS
And all who care and love me
Were quick to comfort me:
Where Santa’s people love and care
That’s where Santa will be.

My parents then spoke to me
And cleared the mystery:
Where Santa’s people love and care
That’s where Santa will be.

CHORUS

My Nano* came and kissed me
And she explained to me
Family Care and family love
At Santa’s Christmas tree.

CHORUS

My Dado** came and hugged me
And eased my worries free,
Told of Santa long ago
And how it used to be.

CHORUS

So now I know for certain
What Santa means to me:
Love and Care for everyone
And a loving family.

CHORUS

Nano* = Grandmother
Dado** = Grandfather
