Текст ABBA — Happy New Year

Куплет 1

No more champagne and the fireworks are through
Here we are, me and you — feeling lost and feeling blue
It’s the end of the party and the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday, now’s the time for us to say…

Припев

Happy new year! Happy new year!
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend

Happy new year! Happy new year!
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die — you and I

Куплет 2

Sometimes I see how the Brave New World arrives
And I see how it thrives in the ashes of our lives
Oh yes, man is a fool and he thinks he’ll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay never knowing he’s astray

Keeps on going anyway…

Припев

Happy new year! Happy new year!
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend

Happy new year! Happy new year!
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die — you and I

Куплет 3

Seems to me now that the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more than confetti on the floor
It’s the end of a decade in another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find what lies waiting down the line

In the end of eighty-nine…

Припев

Happy new year! Happy new year!
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend

Happy new year! Happy new year!
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die — you and I
