I wonder if you heard the story
Of little fame and lesser glory
The night to keep her on me
The little town of Bethlehem
Counting Joseph, fearless Mary
About to birth the savior of the world

His wife said, 'go and see who's knocking'
He ran out to the gate, unlocked it
The moment he heard Mary's cry
Couldn't look the in the eye
Denied the men with 'when his wife asked who was there
He said, 'I don't know, just a girl
Just a couple of gypsies begging at the door
I told them we don't have room for any more
And closed the door. It was just a girl'

He tried to sleep, he wasn't able
He snuck out to the dirty stable
Where the two would find the covering
Later in her suffering 'and pray, 'what have I done?'
It's just a bed, just a minute so they're trembling in the hay
I could've found a room for them to stay, I'm so ashamed
It's just a bed

There is no room, there was no crowd
The shepherd stood on royal ground
The keeper wept for what he done
He turned away God's own son

Just a kid, just a million angels crowding there to see
Jesus there for all humanity
Just a bed, just a minute so they trembling in the hay
Staring at his mother in the face
She's just a girl, just a girl
Does she even know that she just changed the world?
Does she even know that He will save the world?
Does Mary know that He will save the world?
She's just a girl, just a girl, just a girl, just a girl
