Lyrics

And so this is Christmas, and what have you done?
Another year older, a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young
A merry, merry Christmas and a happy new year
Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fears
And so this is Christmas, for weak and for strong
The rich and the poor ones, the road is so long

And so, happy Christmas, for black and for white
The yellow and red ones, and stop all the fights
A merry, merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fears

And so, this is Christmas, and what have we done?
Another year older, a new one just begun
And so, happy Christmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young
A merry, merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fears
