Happy Christmas, War is over, Is all they could say
De-Mobed, De-Frocked, Order of the day..
Suits & lies, Hope caught in the circle of eyes
Around the corner was Teddy Boy ties
What the world needed now was a symbol of Hope!
No Hope, No Jesus, just pass me the rope
A boy from Tupelo was to deliver the hammer
In the summer of 55′ ‘thats alright mama’
A wop bop a loo bop, A wop bam boo
Seemed to make sense to me & to you
Did we know what it meant? It seemed that we should
Rave On! Great Balls Of Fire, Johnny Be Goode!
It all passed so fast, or did it really go slow?
What’s that box in the corner? Ready! Steady! Go!
In the blink of an eye, all gone too soon
Still telling us that someday we’ll walk on the moon!
