The Christmas Shoppe

Way back behind the high street

Way back behind the high street Down a cobbled, old, dark road

Way back behind the high street Down a cobbled, old, dark road Sits a place of awesome wonders

Way back behind the high street Down a cobbled, old, dark road Sits a place of awesome wonders And Christmas presents by the load

It's a little, tiny, Christmas Shoppe

It's a little, tiny, Christmas Shoppe It sits alone, with a small sign

It's a little, tiny, Christmas Shoppe It sits alone, with a small sign It has sooty, frosted windows

It's a little, tiny, Christmas Shoppe It sits alone, with a small sign It has sooty, frosted windows And a door of painted pine

If you don't believe in Christmas

If you don't believe in Christmas Don't carry Christmas in your heart

If you don't believe in Christmas Don't carry Christmas in your heart You'll never find The Christmas Shoppe

If you don't believe in Christmas Don't carry Christmas in your heart You'll never find The Christmas Shoppe It'd be a waste to even start

To look for Christmas Magic

To look for Christmas Magic In a store, you will not find

To look for Christmas Magic In a store, you will not find For to see it, you must carry Christmas

To look for Christmas Magic In a store, you will not find For to see it, you must carry Christmas In your heart and in your mind

It's a place of magic and of wonder

It's a place of magic and of wonder It's only there one month a year

It's a place of magic and of wonder It's only there one month a year But, if you aren't a true believer

It's a place of magic and of wonder It's only there one month a year But, if you aren't a true believer It's just best if you steer clear

Nick and Holly are the owners

Nick and Holly are the owners When I say owners, I mean staff

Nick and Holly are the owners When I say owners, I mean staff They show up each and every Christmas

Nick and Holly are the owners When I say owners, I mean staff They show up each and every Christmas And these two know how to laugh

The door will open to believers

The door will open to believers It can tell, you may be shocked

The door will open to believers It can tell, you may be shocked It decides for whom to open

The door will open to believers It can tell, you may be shocked It decides for whom to open For non-believers, it stays locked

Once inside, the store is magic

Once inside, the store is magic It goes forever and a day

Once inside, the store is magic It goes forever and a day It's full of presents like no others

Once inside, the store is magic It goes forever and a day It's full of presents like no others It's just a place you'd want to stay

Tell Nick and Holly your desire

Tell Nick and Holly your desire What Christmas gift and tell them who

Tell Nick and Holly your desire What Christmas gift and tell them who You would like to get this present

Tell Nick and Holly your desire What Christmas gift and tell them who You would like to get this present And they will find it fast for you

A gift for granddad for his workshop

A gift for granddad for his workshop A special plate for your wife's mom

A gift for granddad for his workshop A special plate for your wife's mom No request cannot be answered

A gift for granddad for his workshop A special plate for your wife's mom No request cannot be answered You get your wish each time you come

The shelves are full of nothing

The shelves are full of nothing But, then again, you give your list

The shelves are full of nothing But, then again, you give your list Then the shelves are full of wonder

The shelves are full of nothing But, then again, you give your list Then the shelves are full of wonder And you see all the things you missed

The store is magic, that is certain

The store is magic, that is certain With gifts from many years gone by

The store is magic, that is certain With gifts from many years gone by It's full of gifts lost over eons

The store is magic, that is certain With gifts from many years gone by It's full of gifts lost over eons To find them now, you wouldn't try

There are extra men for playing soldiers

There are extra men for playing soldiers Made of lead and painted up

There are extra men for playing soldiers Made of lead and painted up There's extra dice for snakes and ladders

There are extra men for playing soldiers Made of lead and painted up There's extra dice for snakes and ladders And over there, a barking pup

As long as you are a believer

As long as you are a believer Nick and Holly, will come on through

As long as you are a believer Nick and Holly, will come on through They'll find a doll from 1940

As long as you are a believer Nick and Holly, will come on through They'll find a doll from 1940 They'll find a dress from back then too

It doesn't matter what you ask for This store is full of what you ask

It doesn't matter what you ask for This store is full of what you ask It knows exactly what you're thinking It is a portal to the past

The prices are within your budget

The prices are within your budget There's nothing here you can not buy
