ANNIE DINERMAN: *LISTEN

He Was A Little Thing, Like You (Country Christmas Ballad)

(Nashville Demo, sung by Juli Maners)
Music and Lyrics by Annie Dinerman

Annie doesn't know what inspired her to write this Christmas song!  The demo was produced in Nashville by Steve Cooper, featuring the lovely voice of Juli Maners.

WELL, LOOK AT YOU IN YOUR PARTY SHOES.
YOU TIED THEM YOURSELF!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, SUGAR.
SURE, BABY DOLL, ASK ME ANYTHING.
COULD I TELL YOU
ALL 'BOUT THE KING?
HE LIVED IN GRACELAND.
OH.  THE OTHER KING.
SIT ON MY KNEE.
NOW, LET ME SEE …

HE WAS A LITTLE THING LIKE YOU.
THAT'S THE MIRACLE.
YOU'RE A MIRACLE, TOO.
YOU'RE THE REASON I KNOW
THAT GOD LOVES ME, YES, IT'S TRUE.
'CAUSE ONCE UPON A TIME,
HE WAS A LITTLE THING LIKE YOU.

COULD HE TELL TIME?  COULD HE RIDE A BIKE?
DID HE HAVE A DOG?
HOW WOULD I KNOW, SUGAR?
GEE, HONEY PIE, I DON’T MEAN TO SCOLD
BUT DO I LOOK
TWO THOUSAND YEARS OLD?
'CAUSE I SAID SO.
YEAH, YOU LEAVE IT THERE
UNDER THE TREE.
NOW, LET ME SEE …

HE WAS A LITTLE THING LIKE YOU.
HE WAS REAL POLITE.
BRUSHED HIS TEETH EVERY NIGHT.
WHEN HIS MAMA SAID, “EAT,”
HE CLEANED HIS PLATE, SO HE GREW.
BUT ONCE UPON A TIME,
HE WAS A LITTLE THING LIKE YOU.

CHRISTMAS IS HIS BIRTHDAY.
HELP ME SET THE TABLE.
WE’LL THROW A BIRTHDAY PARTY
FOR THE BABY BORN IN THE STABLE.

HE WAS A LITTLE THING LIKE YOU.
THAT'S THE MIRACLE.
YOU'RE A MIRACLE, TOO.
YOU'RE THE REASON I KNOW
THAT GOD LOVES ME, YES, IT'S TRUE.
'CAUSE ONCE UPON A TIME,
HE WAS A LITTLE THING LIKE YOU.
