lyrics

Lyrics:

Did you say it's Christmas, did you say New Year?
Time to come together to share the Christmas cheer
You may be lighting candles, you may be drinking beer
We need a new, New Year.

Here’s to the homeless whose spirits fallen low
Sleeping in the shelter with nowhere left to go
Drinking in the doorway, hiding by the hedge
Breathing in the winter wind and living on the edge.

Did you say it's Christmas, did you say New Year?
Time to come together to share the Christmas cheer
You may be lighting candles, you may be drinking beer
We need a new, New Year.

We need a new, we need a new, we need a new, New Year.
We need a new, we need a new, we need a new, New Year.

Here’s to the stranger, the frightened refugee
Let’s hope that this Xmas means more than mugs of tea
Left their life behind them, left their broken land
Now they need a manger, they need a helping hand.

Did you say it's Christmas, did you say New Year?
Time to come together to share the Christmas cheer
Let’s cut the usual cliches, let’s make it real and true
We’ve got to make the changes in 2022.

We need a new, we need a new, we need a new New Year.
We need a new, we need a new, we need a new New Year.

Here’s to the planet, the oceans and the trees
The beauty all around us, the eagle and the bees
She’s lived for many centuries, breathed for many years
Now with smoke and gases, the earth is full of tears.

We need a New Year to blow the clouds away
We need a new beginning, we need a different day
Let’s cut the usual cliches, let’s make it real and true
We’ve got to make the changes in 2022.

We need a new, we need a new, we need a new New Year.
We need a new, we need a new, we need a new New Year.

Did you say it's Christmas, did you say New Year?
Let’s have a celebration, let’s share the Christmas cheer
You may be lighting candles, you may be drinking beer
We need to come together, to make a new, New Year.
