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
