Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
A E D E  - x2

Verse 1:
A              D
  No more champagne,
         A               C#7
And the fireworks are through,
        D            A
Here we are, me and you
         D                 E
Feeling lost and feeling blue.

         A           D
It's the end of the party,
         A                 C#7
And the morning seems so grey,
      D          A
So unlike yesterday,
           D              E   E7
Now's the time for us to say:   

Chorus:
           A
Happy new year,
           C#7
Happy new year,
            F#m    D               F#
May we all have a vision now and then
      F#7        F#              F#7     Bm   E7
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend?   

           A
Happy new year,
           C#7
Happy new year,
            F#m      D                   F#
May we all have our hopes, our will to try?
       F#7       F#                F#7      Bm  E
If we don't, we might as well lay down and die,  
        Bm  E  E7
You and I.        

Verse 2:
A              D
  Sometimes I see
          A                C#7
How the brave new world arrives,
       D            A
And I see how it thrives
       D             E
In the ashes of our lives.

     A             D
Oh, yes, man is a fool,
         A               C#7
And he thinks he'll be okay,
         D            A
Dragging on feet of clay,
        D              A
Never knowing he's astray,
          D        E   E7
Keeps on going anyway.   

Chorus:
           A
Happy new year,
           C#7
Happy new year,
            F#m    D               F#
May we all have a vision now and then
      F#7        F#              F#7     Bm   E7
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend?   

           A
Happy new year,
           C#7
Happy new year,
            F#m      D                   F#
May we all have our hopes, our will to try?
       F#7       F#                F#7      Bm  E
If we don't, we might as well lay down and die,  
Bm  E E7  A
You   and I.

Instrumental:
A E D E - x2

Verse 3:
 A           D
Seems to me now
           A              C#7
That the dreams we had before
         D             A
Are all dead, nothing more
         D             E
Than confetti on the floor.

         A         D
It's the end of a decade,
     A                C#7
In another ten years time
         D              A
Who can say what we'll find,
           D                A
What lies waiting down the line
       D              E    E7
In the end of eighty-nine?   

           A
Happy new year,
           C#7
Happy new year,
            F#m    D               F#
May we all have a vision now and then
      F#7        F#              F#7     Bm   E7
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend?   

           A
Happy new year,
           C#7
Happy new year,
            F#m      D                   F#
May we all have our hopes, our will to try?
       F#7       F#                F#7      Bm  E
If we don't, we might as well lay down and die,  
Bm  E E7  A
You   and I.
