If you were born today
We'd kill you by age eight
Never get the chance to say

Joy to the world and
Peace on the earth
Forgive them for they know not what they do

Blessed are the meek and
Blessed are the humble
Blessed are the ninety and nine

Deny the flesh
Deny all that's evil
Tonight you'll deny me thrice

If you were born today
We'd kill you by age eight
You'd never have the chance to say... to say...

Ooooo...

Joy to the world (If you were born today)
Peace on the earth (We'd kill you by age eight)
Never get the chance to say...

Ooooo.....
