Countdown to the midnight hour Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four You can feel the tension in the air Among the people waiting there Three, two, one, the bells ring out The crowd lets roar with a mighty shout Happy New Year, Happy New Year
The old year has gone, finished at last All its troubles are in the past We can all look forward to a bright new year Full of hope, full of good cheer After the bells there’s a firework display That lights the sky on a brand new day Happy New Year, Happy New Year.
The year is but a few days old The celebrations soon grown cold The news in the headlines are as bleak As they were in old year just last week A stabbing on the second, a shooting on the third Just the same old news we’ve heard Happy New Year? Happy New Year?
Its really sad, its such a shame That everything is just the same Good news is what we need to hear But only bad things make news, I fear Forget the economy, the murders and such The year ahead of us offers so much HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAPPY NEW YEAR
