Buckshot Dot aka Dee Strickland Johnson

Buckshot Dot gave us permission to post one of her uplifting Christmas songs!

 Sing Me the Songs of Christmas  

                   “Buckshot Dot”* © 2012, ® 2020

 

  Don’t sing me songs that make me sad,
  Sing songs about Christmas joys!
  Sing me the songs about peace and love,        
  Let us all make a joyful noise!
  
        
  Chorus: Sing me the songs of Christmas,
  The wonderful carols of old
  That tell of the birth of a tiny child
  By prophets and kings foretold.

 

Sing me the songs of the Prince of Peace,
Of joy and of firelight bright,
Of holly and ivy and mistletoe,
Sweet children whose songs delight.


Don’t tell me stories about lost love,
Tell me only of love that lasts.
Let us go dancing all through the streets,
As in all of our Christmases past.

Chorus:  Tell me the tales of Christmas,
          The wonderful stories of old
          That tell of the birth of a tiny child
          By prophets and kings foretold.
 
          Yes, let us go dancing through the streets
          Where colored lights shine on high,
          Merrily greeting the people we’re meeting
          As we go a-caroling by.   
          As we go a-dancing and singing,
          Bells ringing,
          As we go a-caroling by!
