So This Is Christmas (Xmas)

This song expresses it best!

 

Lyrics

So this is Christmas
And what have you done (1)
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones (2)
The old and the young.

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
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The war is so long (3)
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white (4)
For yellow and red ones (4)
Let’s stop all the fight. (5)

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 happy Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

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 (6)

Notes

  1. Did you do something useful with your life this year?
  2. Neighbors, friends, and family
  3. The Vietnam War (US vs. North Vietnam) was in progress.
    This was a war-protest song.
  4. red people = American Indians, yellow people = Asians,
    white people = Caucasians, black people = African Americans
  5. Let’s live together in peace and harmony.
  6. These four lines are the same as the first four lines.
    The writer is subtly saying that the end of one year is the beginning of a new year — a new beginning where we can start afresh.
