"There's A New Kid In Town"
(Don Cook / Curly Putman / Keith Whitley)

Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head
The stars in the sky look down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

We're looking for The King
The new Messiah
We're following the star
Shining brighter
Old man won't you help us if you can
He shook his head
But he pointed his hand

There's a new kid in town
And He's lying in a manger down the road
There's a new kid in town
But He's just another baby I suppose
Heaven knows
There's a new kid in town
Here in Bethlehem

I see you've traveled far
Bearing treasures
You say these gifts are for
The new King's pleasures
I've heard that a King might come
But up 'til now there hasn't been one
