Merry Christmas

My Favourite Time of Year Words & music by Leigh Haggerwood

Verse 1 Lanterns lighting up the town, Peace on earth is all around, Everything is calm on Christmas Eve. There’s goodwill in the air tonight, Angels sing by candle light, Their voices carried on the wind. When carol singers gather round, When I hear that festive sound, I wanna join with them and sing!

Chorus They sing a merry song and we all sing along, A festive melody that tells us Christmas time is here. See the stars tonight; they’re shining bright, ‘Cause it’s Christmas time and it’s my favourite time of year.

Verse 2 Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Give me mistletoe; it’s the season to be jolly, Wrapping presents, writing cards, helping decorate the tree, But there’s one thing that makes it all for me. When carol singers gather round, Angel voices fill the town, It’s like the world is joining in! (Noel, Noel, Noel)

Chorus They sing a merry song and we all sing along, A festive melody that tells us Christmas time is here. See the stars tonight; they’re shining bright, ‘Cause it’s Christmas time and it’s my favourite time of year.

Middle 8 Christmas Eve, Still believe, So excited, Can’t sleep, When the morning comes, Church bells ring, And he’s been!

Chorus They sing a merry song and we all sing along, A festive melody that tells us Christmas time is here. See the stars tonight; they’re shining bright, ‘Cause it’s Christmas time and it’s my favourite time of year. And it’s my favourite time of year (Noel, Noel) End

 

Banksy ‘nativity scene’ appears in Bethlehem hotel

banksynativity

Dubbed the “Scar of Bethlehem”, the work shows Jesus’s manger by Israel’s separation barrier, which appears to have been pierced by a blast, creating the shape of a star.

Israel says the barrier is needed to prevent terror attacks. Palestinians say it is a device to grab land.

The International Court of Justice has called it illegal.

How New Voting Machines Could Hack Our Democracy

Tracy Chapman -Talkin’ Bout A Revolution (Live and Acoustic 1988)

tracychapman

Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ ’bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
While they’re standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion
Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ ’bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what’s theirs
Don’t you know
You better run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
‘Cause finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution
Yes, finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh no
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh
While they’re standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion
Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ ’bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
And finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution
Yes, finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh no
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh no
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh no
