So this is Christmas... eh?

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 very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
War is Over
For weak and for strong
If you want it
The rich and the poor ones
War is Over
The world is so wrong
now
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
Now

A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
War is Over
And what have we done
If you want it
Another year over
War is Over
And a new one just begun
Now
And so Happy Christmas
War is Over
We hope you have fun
If you want it
The near and the dear ones
War is Over
The old and the young
Now

A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

War is Over
If you want it
War is Over
Now

I was gonna post this today also! It's such a great song that is encouraging and also a kick in the pants ("and what have you done?").

I want to restate:

War is over
If you want it!

Let's do all we can to make it a peaceful new year!

------------------
One love, one life...
Give peace a chance!
Don't let the bastards grind you down!

Create Light
Create Unity
Create Joy
CREATE PEACE!
