"Happy Christmas (War Is Over)" - Song Lyrics                        

  • So this is Christmas, and what have you done
    Another year over, and 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 fear
  • So this is Christmas (war is over)
    For weak and for strong (if you want it)
    For rich and the poor ones (war is over)
    The world is so wrong (na, ah, ah, ah)
    And so happy Christmas (war is over)
    For black and for white (if you want it)
    For yellow and red ones (war is over)
    Let's stop all the fight (na, ah, ah, ah)
    A merry merry Christmas, and a happy new year
    Let's hope it's a good one, without any fear
  • So this is Christmas (war is over) (so this is Christmas)
    And what have we done (if you want it) (and what have we done)
    T'is another year over now (war is over) (another year over)
    And a new one's just begun (na, ah, ah, ah) (a new one just begun)
    And so this is Christmas (war is over)
    I hope you have fun (if you want it)
    The near and the dear ones (war is over)
    The old and the young (na, ah, ah, ah)
    A merry merry Christmas (a very merry Christmas)
    And a happy new year (and a happy new year to everybody)
    Let's hope it's a good one (let's all hope it's a good 'un)
    Without any fear (without any fear)
  • War is over, if you want it, war is over, na, ah, ah, ah
  • War is over, if you want it, war is over, na, ah, ah, ah
