    Lyrics

    It was almost Christmas time
    And there I stood in another line
    Trying to buy that last gift or two
    Not really in the Christmas mood

    Standin right in front of me was a
    Little boy waiting anxiously
    Pacin 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 beleive what I heard him say

    CHORUS:
    Sir I wanna buy these shoes
    For my mama 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 mama meets Jesus tonight

    He counted penny's for what seemed like years then the
    Cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here."
    He searched his pockets frantically
    Then he turned and he looked at me he said
    "Mama made Christmas good at our house, though
    Most years she just did without, Tell me sir,
    What am I gonna do?
    Some how I gotta buy her these Christmas shoes."

    So I laid the money down
    I just had to help him out
    And I'll never forget the look on his face when he said,
    "Mama's gonna look so great."

    Sir I wanna buy these shoes
    For my mama 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 mama meets Jesus tonight

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

    With Kids:
    Sir I wanna buy these shoes
    For my mama 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 mama meets Jesus tonight

    Kid:
    I want her to look beautiful
    If mama meets Jesus, tonight
