Songinfo

"Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" is een lied geschreven door John Lennon en Yoko Ono, uitgebracht in 1971 als single van John & Yoko / Plastic Ono Band met de Harlem Community Choir. Het was de zevende singlerelease van Lennon buiten zijn werk met The Beatles. Het nummer bereikte nummer 4 in het Verenigd Koninkrijk. Na Lennons dood in 1980 bereikte de single zijn hoogste notering: nummer 2. Oorspronkelijk was het nummer bedoeld als een protestlied over de oorlog in Vietnam, "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" is sindsdien een "kerstklassieker" geworden, dikwijls door andere artiesten uitgevoerd en uitgebracht op kerstalbums.

Songtekst

Happy Christmas, Kyoko
Happy Christmas, Julian

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

And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
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 (War is over)
For weak and for strong (If you want it)
For rich and the poor ones (War is over)
The world is so wrong (Now)

And so: happy Christmas (War is over)
For black and for white (If you want it)
For yellow and red ones (War is over)
Let's stop all the fight (Now)

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 (War is over)
And what have we done (If you want it)
Another year over (War is over)
And a new one just begun (Now)

And so: happy Christmas (War is over)
We hope you have fun (If you want it)
The near and the dear one (War is over)
The old and the young (Now)

A very merry Christmas
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 Christmas
Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas
