  • Lyrics: THE ROOFTOP Marianne Murdock On the streets of the city, a cold December day A stranger overheard what two kids had to say One child was poor, one child was rich The children didn't seem to care which one was which They talked for awhile, 'til her Momma said We'd better get goin' and find us a bed They walked to the park, the little girl cried Momma I'm worried about Christmas day That little boy said Santa drives a big sleigh He doesn't think reindeer make stops For children who don't have a rooftop Well her Momma found a sturdy cardboard box Laid out the blankets and taped up a sock She fashioned a star from evergreen twigs She checked on the one piece of candy she'd hid They sang Christmas carols 'til her Momma said It's late my baby, better get you to bed She tried to stay warm as her little girl cried Momma I'm worried about Christmas day That little boy said Santa drives a big sleigh He doesn't think reindeer make stops For children who don't have a rooftop They slept through dreams of Christmases past And the moon chased the sun to the morn Awoke to the day that again was hailed high As the day the Christ child was born And the little girl cried when she saw what he'd done Momma come quick, it's Christmas day Santa's been here with his reindeer and sleigh And a stranger's sweet tears wouldn't stop As he watched from up on his rooftop
