Christ In The Stable

This song is by ApologetiX and appears on the album Handheld Messiah (2013).

This song is a parody of "Cat's in the Cradle" by Harry Chapin.
Our child arrived just the other day
He came to the world as the Truth and the Way
But they were trained to catch and kill the babe
We learned to watch out and run away
But He was born before they knew it or had a clue
I said, my son will be like You, God
I know He's gonna be like You

And the Christ's in the stable
'Cause they filled the rooms
Little boy, who are You? Man, if they knew!
When they gonna know that? I don't know when
But we'll get to Heaven then
You know we'll have a good time then

Our son went to temple the other day
I said, Thanks for the boy, God -- His mom just prayed
Then two people who showed up had a lot to say
And they were prophets, too, I said that's so strange
And they walked away, but they smiled as they did, I said
My goodness, they liked Him, yeah
You know, they really seemed to like Him

And the Christ in the stable
Will fulfill them soon
Little boy, who are You? Man, if they knew!
When they gonna know that? I don't know when
But we'll get to Heaven then
You know we'll have a good time then

Well, they came a-callin' just the other day
Such nice wise men, I just had to say
Wondered how they knew and brought gifts for the child
Just look, they said, overhead, with a smile
Well, it's really quite rad but we followed the star's beams
To see the leader that its advent means

And the Christ in the stable
Will fulfill them soon
Little boy, who are You? Man, if they knew!
When they gonna know, Son? I don't know when
But we'll get to Heaven then, yeah
I know we'll have a good time then

My lungs seem so tired, my son's come of age
I call Him "son" for His mother's sake
I said, I'd like to see You fulfill those signs
Except my health's too bad
Look like it's time to die
You see, I knew God could handle anything You'll go through
But it's sure nice watchin' Him do that
It's been sure nice adoptin' You too

And as I run up to go into eternity
Jehovah, yes, I see
My boy looks just like Thee

And the Christ in the stable
Will be killed real soon
Little boy, who are You? Man, if they knew!
When they gonna know the Son? I don't know when
But they'll get to Heaven then, yeah
They're gonna have a good time then
