I Believe In Father Christmas Lyrics

by Emerson, Lake And Palmer

They said, "There'll be snow at Christmas"
They said, "There'll be peace on Earth"
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the Virgin's birth.

I remember one Christmas morning
A winter's light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell
And eyes full of tinsel and fire


They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a Silent Night
And they told me a fairy story
'Till I believed in the Israelite.

And I believed in Father Christmas
And I looked to the sky with excited eyes
'Till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise,

I wish you a hopeful Christmas
I wish you a brave New Year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear.

They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on Earth
Hallelujah! Noel! Be it Heaven or Hell
The Christmas you get you deserve.
