Happy Xmas And a happy New Year(War Is Over)~Sarah McLachlan


Happy Xmas (War Is Over) 是John Lennon和他的日本妻子Yoko Ono大野 洋子,於1971在紐約創作的。當時是為反對美國越戰的抗議歌曲,如今成了很標準聖誕歌曲。John Lennon和他妻子Yoko Ono為反對美國越戰,於1969年開始發動了一場國際性的反戰抗議活動,租用了世界11大城市許多壁板,寫上“WAR IS OVER! (If You Want It) Happy Christmas from John and Yoko",也就是後來這首歌中童聲唱的歌詞:“War is over/If you want it/War is over/Now!”, 這11大城市包括紐約、東京、羅馬、雅典、阿姆斯特丹和倫敦等。 2006 年10月,加拿大著名歌手Sarah McLachlan在她的第17張專輯中翻唱了這首歌,使得這首老歌煥發了青春。歌中的童聲是由Sarah McLachlan音樂外展兒童合唱團演唱的。




Happy Xmas(War is over) - Sarah Mclachlan

So this is Xmas And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Xmas I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very Merry Xmas And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one Without any fear
And so this is Xmas (war is over)
For weak and for strong (if you want it)
For rich and the poor ones (war is over)
The world is so wrong (if you want it)
And so happy Xmas (war is over)
For black and for white (if you want it)
For yellow and red ones (war is over)
Let's stop all the fight (now)
A very Merry Xmas And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one Without any fear
And so this is Xmas (war is over)
And what have we done (if you want it)
Another year over (war is over)
A new one just begun (if you want it)
And so happy Xmas (war is over)
We hope you have fun (if you want it)
The near and the dear one (war is over)
The old and the young (now)
A very Merry Xmas And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one Without any fear
War is over, if you want it
War is over now
