1. Happy Christmas 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 ones/ The old and the young / A merry merry Christmas/ And a Happy New Year / Let’s hope it’s a good one / Without any fear.
2.Father and sonFather: It’s not time to make a change, just relax take it easy, you’re still young that’s your fault there’s so much you have to know. Find a girl settle down. If you want you can marry, look at me, I am old but I’m happy. I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy, to be calm when you’ve found something going on. But take your time, think a lot, why think of everything you’ve got, for you will still be here tomorrow,but your dreams may not.Son:How can I try to explain, cause when I do heturns away again, it’s always been the same same old story. From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen, now there’s a way and I know that I have to go. Away , I know , I have to go.
