Merry Christmas One And All

Patrick Cannell 2010
Goodbye autumn rain, Christmas time is here again.
Silent Night and Jingle Bells Are ringing in my ears.
I will never tire of a glowing Yuletide fire,
Time to once again reflect on all our hopes and fears.

Always different, yet the same.
Christmas time is here again.

See the falling snow, ten degrees or so below.
All the kids are laughing now they've reached the end of term.
Santa, bearing gifts, he's been working double shifts,
Making sure that everybody gets what they have earned.

Always different, yet the same.
Christmas time is here again.

So lift up your hearts and give a cheer for Christmas.
Merry Christmas to one and all
Let's make this one the best of all.

Hello winter sun, pale and weak but such good fun.
Everyone is happy as they shelter from the storm.
Good will is the law, carol singers kick the door.
Slap their freezing faces, it will help to keep them warm.

Always different, yet the same.
Christmas time is here again.

So lift up your hearts and give a cheer for Christmas.
Merry Christmas to one and all
Let's make this one the best of all.
