Lyrics

(recite)...
..." Years ago when I was a college student, I took a part-time job in a local shopping mall during the Christmas break, helping a photographer take pictures of children sitting on Santa's lap.
Late that Christmas Eve, as the mall was closing, about the time we were thinking of going home, a little girl came running over with her Mom closely behind her.
We knew that Santa had to pose for one more picture, but it wasn't the photo opportunity and the excitement of Christmas in the little girl's eyes that I remember so well.......It was what she asked her Mother, just afterwards, as they slowly walked away, holding hands."......

Mommy, why was Santa crying?...cause I saw a little tear roll down his cheek....
Mommy, why was Santa crying?...cause I thought his smile seemed too weak, and all the while, I wondered why....Mommy, what made Santa cry?

Mommy, why was Santa crying?...when he looked at me, he said my name
Mommy, why was Santa crying?...when he whispered in my ear, his nose was red, and I saw a little tear fall from his eye...Mommy, what made Santa cry?

CHORUS:
Was it because he was tired?... There were so many
Children to see.
Maybe he missed Mrs. Clause.....
Do you know what it could be?

Mommy, why was Santa crying?...cause I saw his eyes look up at you.
Mommy, why was Santa crying?...When the camera clicked, you were crying too,,, Did you hear him say, "How time can fly"?
Mommy, what made Santa cry?

CHOURUS

TAG:
When the camera clicked, you were crying too,....
Did you hear him say, "How time can fly"?...
Mommy, what made Santa cry?
