Verse (Same Pattern as before)

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
The rich and the poor ones
The road is so long
So happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

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
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
And we hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

Chorus (Same as before)

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

Outro (in same pattern as verses)

War is over, if you want it
War is over now
