   G                          Am                   G                      B7

1.    No more champagne, and the fireworks are through,

                   C                  G              Am                       D

    here we are, me and you feeling lost and feeling blue.

                G              Cm                    G                           B7

    It's the end of the party, and the morning seems so grey

             C                G                   Am                 D       - D7

    so unlike yesterday, now's the time for us to say :

 

                      G                           B7

Happy New Year, Happy New Year,

                  - Em            C                        E

may we all       have a vision now and then,

        E7                           E                    Am      - D

of a world where every neighbour is a friend.

                      G                          B7

Happy New Year, Happy New Year,

                  - Em                 C                        E

may we all         have our hopes, our will to try,

          E7                          E                         Am   - D

if we don't, we might as well lay down and die,  

             Am  - D      

you and  I .

 

    G                      Am                 G                         B7

2.    Sometimes I see how the brave new world arrives,

               C                G               Am                 D

    and I see how it thrives in the ashes of our lives.

           G                  Cm                G                  B7

    Oh yes, man is a fool and he thinks he'll be ok,

                   C                         G                         Am                    G   

    dragging on (ooh) feet of clay (ooh), never knowing he's astray,

                    Am    - C          D      - D7

    keeps on going        anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                      G                           B7

Happy New Year, Happy New Year,

                  - Em            C                        E

may we all       have a vision now and then,

        E7                           E                    Am      - D

of a world where every neighbour is a friend.

                      G                          B7

Happy New Year, Happy New Year,

                  - Em                 C                        E

may we all         have our hopes, our will to try,

          E7                          E                         Am   - D

if we don't, we might as well lay down and die, 

Am  - D          G   - D - C - D           G - D - C - D

you         and  I .

 

       G                  Am                 G                        B7

3. Seems to me now that the dreams we had before

                  C                    G                 Am               D

    are all dead, nothing more than confetti on the floor.

                 G           Am               G                      B7

    It's the end of a decade, in another ten years time

                    C                             G                                

    who can say (ooh) what we'll find (ooh),

                    Am                      G

    what lies waiting down the line,

               Am - C                  D       - D7

    in the end        of Eighty-nine?
