“Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun” – A Christmas Story
Music and Lyrics: Benj Pasek & Justin Paul
Classic holiday film A Christmas Story based on the musings of Jean Shepherd debuted on this day in 1983. Twenty-six years later, the movie became a stage musical featuring this whippersnapper of a tune where Ralphie describes the gift he desires the most. What do you want for the holidays? If you’re having trouble deciding, maybe this song will give you some inspiration.
