Christmas Is A Birthday Christmas Song

Christmas Is A Birthday

Year: 1965

Written By: Dick Manning, Gregory Paul Deutsch

The birthday in question is that of Christ and Burl Ives certainly gave his all in his retelling of the story. 'Christmas Is A Birthday' was the second track on the folk singer's classic 'Have A Holly Jolly Christmas' album, released in 1965, and it revealed an artist not afraid to bring it all back to the reasons we celebrate the event each December. Even after all these years Ives comforting voice remains the perfect foil for Christmas material.

 

Christmas Is A Birthday Lyrics

Sing now a song of joy
Every Christmas is a birthday
Of that Baby born in Bethlehem
Far Far away

Ring out ol' bells of joy
Every Christmas is a birthday
Celebrated for that Baby Boy
Born Christmas Day

Sweet little stranger
There in the manger
Sent to be King of us
That Day of days

Angels above Him
Told us to love Him
Cling to him, bring to Him
Glory and praise

Ring out ol' bells of joy
Every Christmas is a birthday
Celebrated for that Baby Boy
Born Christmas Day

Sweet little stranger
There in the manger
Sent to be King of us
That Day of days

Angels above Him
Told us to love Him
Cling to him, bring to Him
Glory and praise

Ring out ol' bells of joy
Every Christmas is a birthday
Celebrated for that Baby Boy
Born Christmas Day
