No Room at the Inn

 
Young couple forced to leave their home.
The count must be taken for the emperor in Rome.
She’s so far along that it seems too far to go.
Young couple come to the town of his fathers.
Most already there taking care of each other.
So, where can they stay? "We’re all full," "So sorry, no."
 
There is no room at the inn. (Closing their doors, closing their hearts)
No room at the inn.
 
Young family forced to leave their home.
Eviction notice came when the doctor bills had grown.
She’s so far along that it seems too far to go.
Young family look for a shelter from the cold.
The winter winds blow hard as they’re told and they’re told,
"Try St. Vincent’s downtown," "We’re all full," "So sorry, no."
 
Chorus	
 
Still we point our fingers at the people of Bethlehem
And ask, "Why would no one make room for them?"
 
Chorus
Ó 1996 Nick Cardilino and Tom Sheibley
