Lyrics

Christmas in Philly

 

Verse 1

 

It was Christmas in Philly, all the lights were lit up                                                                 

We were dark and defeated, when the lighting bolt struck

And I think of it always even when I don’t think

The process is happening, hey!, we’re on the brink

 

Chorus

 

Wait some more, forever it seems

The 76ers, they’re stuck in my dreams              

They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell                       

The bright lights are shinin’ on Carson and Joel

 

Verse 2

 

The Flyers they tease you year after year

But winning a Cup, oh, it seems so not near

Rocky was a champ, and the Phillies were too

The Eagles are surging, they won’t make us blue

 

Chorus

 

Wait some more, forever it seems

The 76ers, they’re stuck in my dreams              

They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell                       

The bright lights are shinin’ on Carson and Joel

 

 

Verse 3

 

Soon the sun’ll be shinin’ on the Mummers parade

Cheap booze on our breath, but I ain’t afraid

 Cuz it’s Christmas in Philly, and tonight I will dream

Of a party down Broad Street for a championship team

 

Chorus

 

Wait some more, forever it seems

The 76ers, they’re stuck in my dreams              

They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell                       

The bright lights are shinin’ on Carson and Joel

The bright lights are shinin’ on Carson and Joel
