Play the song ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ by John and Yoko

Lyrics:-

So this is Xmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is Xmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Xmas
And a happy new year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas
(War is over)
For weak and for strong
(If you want it)
The rich and the poor ones
(War is over now)
The road is so wrong

And so Happy Xmas
(War is over)
For black and for white
(If you want it)
For yellow and red ones
(War is over now)
Let’s stop all the fight

A very merry Xmas
And a happy new year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

So this is Xmas
(War is over)
And what have you done?
(If you want it)
Another year over
(War is over now)
And a new one just begun

And so happy Xmas
(War is over)
I hope you have fun
(If you want it)
The near and the dear ones
(War is over now)
The old and the young

A very merry Xmas
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

Happy Xmas
Happy Xmas
Happy Xmas.
