Christmas Concerto  © 2011 String Theory.
(music by String Theory, lyrics by Ken Glaser, based on the “Concerto Grosso in G minor, Op. 6, No. 8” by Arcangelo Corelli)

The elves have loaded up the sleigh
And sent Saint Nicholas on his way
Circling the globe as darkness falls
Bringing gifts to one and all

Silvery icicles glistening
Angels dance and reindeer sing
On rooftops capped with sheets of snow
While children sleep in rooms below

The telephone dares not make a sound
As the family gathers ’round
To see the joy in a child’s eyes
On peaceful Christmas morning

A star atop majestic tree
Abundant treasures underneath
Wooden soldiers keeping watch
As Santa stacks the final box

The crack of dawn, a crackling fire
The warmth the holidays inspire
The pitter patter of little feet
Down the stairs and seeking treats

The telephones dare not make a sound
As all the world has gathered ’round
To see the joy in children’s eyes
On peaceful Christmas morning
