Lyrics:-

It’s the mem’ry of an Old Christmas Card…

There’s an Old Christmas Card in an old dusty trunk
And it brings back sweet mem’ries dear to me
‘Tho it’s faded and worn, it’s as precious as the morn
When I found it ‘neath our first Christmas tree

I thrill with every word, every line
Guess I’m always sentimental ’round this time
Pardon me if a tear falls among my Christmas cheer
It’s the mem’ry of an Old Christmas Card

You know, I don’t know why I get to feeling sentimental about this
time, every year. But every time I see a Christmas card, I somehow
can’t help reminiscing. About the very first Christmas that you and
I spent together. What a beautiful Christmas card you gave me that
year. Why, I know you must have looked through thousands of cards
to find that wonderful poem that still brings a tear to my eyes.

I thrill with every word, every line
Guess I’m always sentimental ’round this time
Pardon me if a tear falls among my Christmas cheer
It’s the mem’ry of an Old Christmas Card.
