Like a fixture down on Main Street,
she stood there all year long,
With a tea cup and a tambourine,
singing the Christmas songs;
Folks thought she was crazy,
but they loved to hear her sing,
Drop some money in her cup,
she'd shake that tambourine.

And they called her Christmas Carol,
There's not a Christmas song she couldn't sing;
Well, I remember Christmas Carol,
With snow-white hair and a beat-up tambourine.

She wore that same old ragged coat
all the year around,
Lived all alone in a little shack
just outside of town;
She'd stand there singing Jingle Bells
in the heat of the summertime,
Yes, everyday was Christmas
in Carol Johnson's mind.

And they called her Christmas Carol,
There's not a Christmas song she couldn't sing;
I remember Christmas Carol,
With snow-white hair and a beat-up tambourine.

But I can still remember
that twinkle in her eye,
'Cause Carol kept a secret
from the people passing by;
That secret was a mystery
they talked about so long,
How Christmas Eve those gifts
showed up outside the Children's Home.

Well, that was forty years ago,
or fifty I believe,
But still the toys kept showing up
each year on Christmas Eve;
I wonder if we'll ever know
just who took up the cause,
Is it still Christmas Carol
or is it Santa Claus?

And they called her Christmas Carol,
There's not a Christmas song she couldn't sing;
Well, I remember Christmas Carol,
With snow-white hair and a beat-up tambourine.
With snow-white hair and a beat-up tambourine.
