<p><strong>Christmas in Philly </strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Verse 1</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It was Christmas in Philly, all the lights were lit up&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>We were dark and defeated, when the lighting bolt struck</p>
<p>And I think of it always even when I don&rsquo;t think</p>
<p>The process is happening, hey!, we&rsquo;re on the brink</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Chorus</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Wait some more, forever it seems</p>
<p>The 76ers, they&rsquo;re stuck in my dreams&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>The bright lights are shinin&rsquo; on Carson and Joel</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Verse 2</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>The Flyers they tease you year after year</p>
<p>But winning a Cup, oh, it seems so not near</p>
<p>Rocky was a champ, and the Phillies were too</p>
<p>The Eagles are surging, they won&rsquo;t make us blue</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Chorus</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Wait some more, forever it seems</p>
<p>The 76ers, they&rsquo;re stuck in my dreams&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>The bright lights are shinin&rsquo; on Carson and Joel</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Verse 3</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Soon the sun&rsquo;ll be shinin&rsquo; on the Mummers parade</p>
<p>Cheap booze on our breath, but I ain&rsquo;t afraid</p>
<p>&nbsp;Cuz it&rsquo;s Christmas in Philly, and tonight I will dream</p>
<p>Of a party down Broad Street for a championship team</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Chorus</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Wait some more, forever it seems</p>
<p>The 76ers, they&rsquo;re stuck in my dreams&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>The bright lights are shinin&rsquo; on Carson and Joel</p>
<p>The bright lights are shinin&rsquo; on Carson and Joel</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
