Gotta Have Christmas (Big D original)

This song was inspired by my Father in Law's Christmas lawn display.
It was a Christmas tree and to the right of that three crosses. You gotta have
Christmas before you can have the cross! So true:)
Gotta Have Christmas (dh 12.7.11)

You've got to have Mary no room at the inn;
You've got to have a baby and clothes to wrap him in;
You've got to have a manger for the King;
You've got to have shepherds to hear the angels sing...
You've gotta have Christmas to have Calvary

You've got to have the Savior born in Bethlehem;
You've got to have Glory to God! Good will to men!
You've got to have the Son born to die on a tree;
You've gotta have Christmas to have Calvary

The manger before the cross, the cross before the grave;
From grave to glory! Glory to God in the Highest!
The manger before the cross, the cross before the grave;
From grave to glory!
Gotta have, gotta have Christmas!
