TITLE: I Believe in Father Christmas
Lyrics and Chords

They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on Earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the virgin birth
/ G D Em7 D / / / /
   I remember one Christmas morning
   The winter's light and a distant choir
   And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell
   And eyes full of tinsel and fire
   / C G D - / / D A G D / D G6 Dsus2-D-Dsus2 - /
{Instrumental - Troika Theme from Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kije}
/ D G D6 D / G D A - / G6 D A7 D / G A Dsus2-D-Dsus2 - /
They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a silent night
They told me a fairy story
Till I believed in the Israelite
   And I believed in Father Christmas
   And I looked to the sky with excited eyes
   Then I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
   And I saw him and through his disguise
I wish you a hopeful Christmas
I wish you a brave New Year
All anguish, pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear

   They said there'd be snow at Christmas
   They said there'd be peace on Earth
   Hallelujah! Noël!  Be it Heaven or Hell
   The Christmas we get, we deserve
{Instrumental twice}
