Elton John – jul

Cold as christmas ( in the middle of the year)

 

We still sit at separate tables
And we sleep at different times
And the warm wind in the palm trees
Hasn’t helped to change our minds
It was the lure of the tropics
That I thought might heal the scars
Of a love burned out by silence
In a marriage minus heart
And I call the kids on the telephone
Say there’s something wrong out here
It’s July but it’s cold as Christmas
In the middle of the year
The temperature’s up to ninety five
But there’s a winter look in your mother’s eyes
And to melt the tears there’s a heat wave here
So how come it’s cold as Christmas in the middle of the year
I dreamed of love in a better climate
And for what it’s really worth
I put faith in the star we followed
To this Caribbean surf
But there’s an icy fringe on everything
And I cannot find the lines
Where’s the beauty in the beast we made
Why the frost in the summertime

 

So this is Christmas – John Lennon

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans 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
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight
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
Ans 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
War is over over
If you want it
War is over
Now…
