ALL ABOUT GIVING

V1
The first flakes of the season were swirling thru the air
Like children on a playground as if they had no cares
Loaded down with presents all year she'd scrimped and saved
She stepped out of a Brooklyn store on that cold December Day

V2
Her daddy was a wise man and before he left this earth
He said, "The more you give away my child, the more that you'll be worth."
On the 4th floor of her high rise she changed into her jeans,
And headed to the kitchen that serves the poor in Queens.

Chorus
It's all about giving, it'?s all about living,
It'?s not about yourself.
It's all about sharing, it's all about caring.
If you really want some wealth.
It'?s like money in the bank,
When you appreciate the chance,
To look up and give some thanks,
It's all about giving.

V3
She saw he had no jacket, there was nothing on his feet,
Peering through a store front window, a teen living on the streets,
He told the angel standing by him while looking straight ahead,
I'm asking God for shoes ma'?am, but he hasn't answered yet.

Bridge
She said you won't survive a winter storm
Lets go inside this shop it's safe and warm
At the stock room basin with a clean wash clothe
She got on her knees to wash his feet off...

V4 (Spoken)
She bought him socks, new shoes a coat and hat,
He couldn't believe his good fortune, no one ever treated him like that,
She turned to walk away, he said, "You've changed my life.
I don't know why but thanks for the chance. By the way are you God's wife?"... she said, "No...

Chorus
It's all about giving, it's all about living,
It's not about yourself,
It's all about sharing, it's all about caring,
If you really want some wealth,
It's like money in the bank,
When you appreciate the chance,
To help your fellow man,
It's all about giving.
It's all about giving.
