A spaceman came traveling on his ship from afar
'Twas light years of time since his mission did start
And over a village he halted his craft
And it hung in the sky like a star just like a star

He followed a light and came down to a she'd
Where a mother and child were lying there on a bed
A bright light of silver shone round his head
And he had the face of an angel and they were afraid

Then the stranger spoke he said "do not fear
I come from a planet a long way from here
And I bring a message for mankind to hear"
And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air
And it went la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Peace and goodwill to all men and love for the child

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Oh

This lovely music went trembling through the ground
And many were awakened on hearing that sound
And travelers on the road
The village they found by the light of that ship in the sky
Which shone all around

And just before dawn at the paling of the sky
The stranger returned and said "now I must fly
When two thousand years of your time has gone by
This song will begin once again to a baby's cry"

And it goes la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Peace and goodwill to all men and love for the child
And I hear la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
This song will begin once again to a baby's cry
