Christmas Is For Kids

Song: Kids
Artist: Kenny Rogers
From the 1981 Album: Kenny Rogers Christmas
Written By: Mac Davis

My favorite version of this song is Conway Twitty's version, but I could not find it on online. So Kenny's version will have to do. The video doesn't start playing for about 20 seconds into it, so be patient.

Kids, kids,
Christmas is for kids.

Look around and you will see
Kids from one to ninety-three

Laughin', lovin' life and bein' kids.

Kids, kids, Christmas is for kids.
Kids like you and little brother,
(or cousins).

Aunts and uncles, dads and mothers

Grandma, grandpa an' all the other kids.

Daddy runs the electric train,
While all the children wait in vain.
To take their turn
At playin' engineer.


Grandpa pinches grandma's cheek.
And all the family sneaks a peak.
And suddenly
Their years just disappear.

Take a look at Betty Joe Lindsey
Underneath the mistletoe.
Pretending that
She doesn't know it's there.

And in the front yard Uncle Mike,
Just fell off brother's brand new bike.

There's Christmas cheer,
And laughter everywhere.

Kids (kids), kids (kids)
Christmas is for kids.

Christmas time is here again.

And now it's when the fun begins
This time of year we all turn into kids...
