Lyrics

The Ghost of Christmas Present: One little boy is just a dot
In all the Human Race,
One little boy is just a spot
Upon the planet's space.
And when he is no longer there
A billion takes the place
Of One Little Boy.

Scrooge: But One little boy can sing a song
And have the world of fun,
One little boy can grow up strong
And leap and jump and run.
And you will watch to see him grow If he will be your sun
of One Little Boy.

The Ghost of Christmas Present: If he passes on after he is gone,
There's one less in the nation.
Let him rest in peace and he will decrease,
The surplus population.
That's what you thought not long ago.

Scrooge: That's what I thought but now I know.
One little boy who cannot walk Is not a broken toy,
One little boy can laugh and talk
And filled a home with joy.
And No one else who takes the place
Of that One Little Boy

That One Little Boy.

Reprise

Bob: One little boy can sing a song
And have the world of fun,
One little boy can grow up strong
And leap and jump and run.
And feel the healthy glow of life
Come flowing from the sun
On One Little Boy.

Scrooge: Though he's just a small,
Tiny part of all the crowded population
Such a boy as he
May grow up to be
The hero of the nation
And you and I should help him grow
Bob:We ought to help because we know.

Bob: One little boy who cannot walk
Is not a broken toy,
One little boy can laugh and talk
And filled a home with joy.

And No one else who takes the place

Of that One Little Boy
That One Little Boy
