ALABAMA lyrics - Alabama Christmas

Tonight Is Christmas

Original and similar lyrics
The factories are all shut down and the shopping malls are all closed And the busy streets are all empty except for the falling snow And in the small towns, in the cities families gather as one 'Cause the night of love and sharing they look forward to has come Chorus: 'Cause tonight is Christmas, tonight is love Tonight we celebrate God's one and only Son Tonight there's hope for peace on earth eternally Tonight is Christmas and the world's in harmony But across the seas two armies stare down at each other's guns Each believing in their cause enough to die or kil the other one But tonight there'll be no shooting, not a drop of blood will spill They will cease their fire this silent night in the name of peace and goodwill Chorus

Gesu Bambino

John McDermott "Christmas Memories"
When blossoms flower e'er 'mid the snows, Upon a winter night, Was born the Child, the Christmas Rose, The King of Love and Light. The angels sang, the shepherds sang, The grateful earth rejoiced; And at His blessed birth the stars Their exultation voiced. Chorus: O come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord. Again the heart with rapture glows To greet the holy night, That gave the world its Christmas Rose, Its King of Love and Light Let ev'ry voice acclaim His name, The grateful chorus swell From paradise to earth He came That we with Him might dwell. Chorus

Richard

Billy Bragg "Life's A Riot With Spy Vs Spy"
Richard belongs to Jayne And Jayne belongs to yesterday How can I go on When every alpha particle hides a neon nucleus Neil belongs to love And love belongs to no man How can he go on When no-one answers the adverts in his mind? Chorus: There will be parties, there will be fun There will be prizes for everyone And hey, hey, hey, here comes Richard There will be ladies dressed in lace I just want to see her face When hey, hey, hey, here comes Richard You helped me build this bed But you won't help me sleep in it When I fall between you and the wall Our titanic love affair sails on the morning tide Chorus I really love you style Did you read it in the Look and Learn? How long can we go on? Do you think I only love you Because you sleep with other boys Chorus

Where Are You Now My Son

JOAN BAEZ "Where Are You Now, My Son?"
(Words and Music by Joan Baez) It's walking to the battleground that always makes me cry I've met so few folks in my time who weren't afraid to die But dawn bleeds with the people here and morning skies are red As young girls load up bicycles with flowers for the dead An aging woman picks along the craters and the rubble A piece of cloth, a bit of shoe, a whole lifetime of trouble A sobbing chant comes from her throat and splits the morning air The single son she had last night is buried under her They say that the war is done Where are you now, my son? An old man with unsteady gait and beard of ancient white Bent to the ground with arms outstretched faltering in his plight I took his hand to steady him, he stood and did not turn But smiled and wept and bowed and mumbled softly, Danke shoen The children on the roadsides of the villages and towns Would stand around us laughing as we stood like giant clowns The mourning bands told whom they'd lost by last night's phantom messenger And they spoke their only words in English, Johnson, Nixon, Kissinger Now that the war's being won Where are you now, my son? The siren gives a running break to those who live in town Take the children and the blankets to the concrete underground Sometimes we'd sing and joke and paint bright pictures on the wall And wonder if we would die well and if we'd loved at all The helmetless defiant ones sit on the curb and stare At tracers flashing through the sky and planes bursting in air But way out in the villages no warning comes before a blast That means a sleeping child will never make it to the door The days of our youth were fun Where are you now, my son? From the distant cabins in the sky where no man hears the sound Of death on earth from his own bombs, six pilots were shot down Next day six hulking bandaged men were dazzled by a room Of newsmen. Sally keep the faith, let's hope this war ends soon In a damaged prison camp where they no longer had command They shook their heads, what irony, we thought peace was at hand The preacher read a Christmas prayer and the men kneeled on the ground Then sheepishly asked me to sing They Drove Old Dixie Down Yours was the righteous gun Where are you now, my son? We gathered in the lobby celebrating Chrismas Eve The French, the Poles, the Indians, Cubans and Vietnamese The tiny tree our host had fixed sweetened familiar psalms But the most sacred of Christmas prayers was shattered by the bombs So back into the shelter where two lovely women rose And with a brilliance and a fierceness and a gentleness which froze The rest of us to silence as their voices soared with joy Outshining every bomb that fell that night upon Hanoi With bravery we have sun But where are you now, my son? Oh people of the shelters what a gift you've given me To smile at me and quietly let me share your agony And I can only bow in utter humbleness and ask Forgiveness and forgiveness for the things we've brought to pass The black pyjama'd culture that we tried to kill with pellet holes And rows of tiny coffins we've paid for with our souls Have built a spirit seldom seen in women and in men And the white flower of Bac Mai will surely blossom once again I've heard that the war is done Then where are you now, my son?

Why Did You Do It Just Tonight?

MODERN TALKING "Lets Talk About Love"
Why did you do it just tonight? You're leaving me without goodbye Why can't you give me one more try? Before you went and said goodbye Why did you do it just tonight? Sometimes I feel that life's a show But I don't wait - don't let you go Cause darling, heaven can be cold With no angel life been told Your memories come and memories go But my love will always grow Why do you flow away my heart? Why did you break apart? Why did you do it just tonight? We had two tickets to paradise Nobody ever loved you more As I always did before Why did you do it just tonight? The way you talk, the way you smile All things you do make life worth while It's not a game you play with me You give this world some sanity Your memories come and memories go But my love will always grow Look at the stars, they're out tonight Be forever by my side
