“It was almost Christmas time
there I stood in another line
trying to buy that last gift or two
I’m really in the Christmas mood
standing right in front of me
was a little boy waiting anxiously
pacing around like little boys do
and in his hands he held
a pair of shoes

And his clothes were worn and old
he was dirty from head to toe
and when it came his time to pay
I couldn’t believe what I heard him say

Sir I wanna buy these shoes
for my Momma please
it’s Christmas Eve
and these shoes are just her size
could you hurry Sir?
Daddy says there’s not much time
you see, she’s been sick for quite a while
and I know these shoes will make her smile
and I want her to look beautiful
if Momma meets Jesus, tonight.

They counted pennies
for what seem like years
and cashier says son
there’s not enough here
he searches is pockets franticly
and he turned and he looked at me
and he said Momma made
Christmas good at our house
most years she just did without
tell me Sir
what am I gonna do?
Some how I’ve got to buy her
these Christmas shoes

So I layed the money down
I just had to help him out
and I’ll never forget
the look on his face
when he said Mamma’s gonna look so great.


Sir I wanna buy these shoes
for my Momma please
it’s Christmas Eve
and these shoes are just her size
could you hurry Sir?
Daddy says there’s not much time
you see, she’s been sick for quite a while
and I know these shoes will make her smile
and I want her to look beautiful
if Momma meets Jesus tonight.

I knew I caught a glimpse of heavens love
as he thanked me and ran out
I know that God had sent
that little boy to remind me
what Christmas is all about

Sir I wanna buy these shoes
for my Momma please
it’s Christmas Eve
and these shoes are just her size
could you hurry Sir?
Daddy says there’s not much time
you see she’s been sick for quite a while
and I know these shoes will make her smile
and I want her to look beautiful
if Mamma meets Jesus tonight

I want her to look beautiful
if Mamma meets Jesus tonight”.
