Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 30/12/2018 – new

img_1345-3

Each week Helen gives us a new theme and asks us to choose music with lyrics to suit.

Sometimes it is difficult, sometimes a song comes immediately to mind. Always, it is enjoyable.

By listening to everyone’s chosen song, which you can do here, we get to hear old favourites, and music that is completely new to some of us.

This week the theme is “new“, and I’m offering two seasonal songs for your enjoyment. The first is by ABBA, and I am using them to help me wish every one of you A Happy New Year.

“Happy New Year”

No more champagne
And the fireworks are through
Here we are, me and you
Feeling lost and feeling blue
It’s the end of the party
And the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday
Now’s the time for us to say…Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Sometimes I see
How the brave new world arrives
And I see how it thrives
In the ashes of our lives
Oh yes, man is a fool
And he thinks he’ll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay
Never knowing he’s astray
Keeps on going anyway…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Seems to me now
That the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor
It’s the end of a decade
In another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find
What lies waiting down the line
In the end of eighty-nine…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

  1. Fairytale of New York remains my absolute favourite to listen to. Watching is something altogether different, I have to close my eyes because the sight of that man chewing gum with his mouth open is nauseating! 🤮

    Brilliant song and I’m glad you included it thank you. Happy New Year… again! 🙂
