So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
And what have we done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun

Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

War is over over
If you want it
War is over
Now

    I believe that the first stanza of the song says it all, "and so this is christmas and what have you done? " christmas is a great time to take stock of your life and see what you have or have not done. Have you made a difference for someone simply because you could? Is the world a better place because you have lived or has your life made no difference at all?

    This song inst just about war only an idiot would think that, its about the bigger scheme of things aka humanity and how we should all just live in peace. we should help others no matter the skin color ,ethnicity, sexual preference, hair color, eye color, body shape or language. its human nature to want want to help each other but we let money and greed shadow over us. No one wins a war war would be pointless if we all got a long

    This song epitomizes what humanity is all about. Red, yellow, black or white, it makes no difference. We can and should live in peace and harmony with each other what is all of this fighting about? Nobody wins a war. Let us stop fighting and live in love. Great song john really great song.

    Thanks to mark chap man we'll never find out. John lennon was the best at what he did write and sing songs. There's always some psycho to take an icon from the public. Chapman should never see the outside of where he is. So john where ever you are up there it has to be better then here.
